By Ryan Sohmer and Lar Desouza
Hands down one of my favorite comics being published today. We follow a group of elfs, mages, trolls and other creatures that feel like you'd be playing D and D as they go on a really crazy journey trying to escape the evil that hunts them down. Okay that's a horrible description but it will work.
Our lead character is an elf named Cale who at the start of the comic is much different then he is now. He was idealistic, caring about the whole world and just confused about his role in life. That is until he got mixed up with the undead warlock Richard which is hands down the best character in the series. Richard likes to cause chaos, light things on fire and just generally be a thorn in everyone's side. But as all characters like that he's easily likable and you can't help but route for the bastard.
The cast is fleshed out by a panther named sooba who is cale's familair, Benny a female half breed healer,Krunch a tauren, Pella who seems to be have the characteristics of both a dwarf and a knome. Together they go on a bizarre journey which has led them to some very interesting places.
The series is overrun by pop culture references and just some great one liners and is a constant treat to read through. I loved learning Rich's battlecry which I wont spoil for you. It's also great seeing all the craziness drawn by Lar who you can tell enjoys each second of it.
(There are 2 hardcovers volumes available on the site and it is done by the same creative team that does Least I can do.)
This book is decidely not for me, but you should check out North World, if you haven't already.
