Review: Dungeons Dragons Volume 2 First Encounters

Review: Dungeons Dragons Volume 2 First Encounters

By Rui Esteves in Reviews on March 1, 2013

Dungeons & Dragon Volume 2 First Encounters continues the story of the last volume in the precise moment the previous one left off. Adric, Khal, Bree, Varis and Tisha are falling through the portal they entered in the last volume and end up in the Elven world. There we meet the Elven people and explore a little of their society and tribal rivalry. Find out how does a lost group of Elf ghosts are connected to our band of heroes and how does that affect Adric's "father-in-law". Explore the world of the Elves and discover Adric's and the gang's past. How is it? The story starts right when the last book ended, with our heroes going through a portal without knowing their destination. However, before we get to know what happened and where they ended up, we get to find out how the gang got together. This origin story plays a pivotal role in the overall plot, so pay attention to it. The Feywild In this second volume the plot revolves around Elves and Dark Elves, ancient dwarven science, old power plays and one unforgiving father-in-law. Lost in Feywild, the Elven World our heroes came face to face with old, thought of dead, foes and Elven political power plays that will have to escape from. On top of that Adric as to come to terms with is Elven "father-in-law". And neither will be happy with it. Sexy Tisha John Rogers manages to continue the great story told in the first volume and take it up a notch. He fleshes this Universe out with a number of new characters that have history with our heroes, new reveals, the rise of the winds of treason and the forging of new alliances. Adric's relationship with the Elven people is particularly interesting. If you read the first volume you already know that Adric is dating an Elven Sorcerer apprentice. In First Encounters you'll not only find out how they met, but also how's the relationship between her father and Adric. A hint, its not very peaceful. In the art department this volume is a tiny little bit weaker than the first. There are beautifully drawn environments, especially Feywild, the Elf World. The coloring is absolutely gorgeous. The different color pallets for the different Worlds and different times of day are a delight to see. The only chink in the armor is that there are a few pages that are drawn in a different style from the rest of the book. That stands out as a sore thumb, but in the end this is a minor issue. Just like the previous volume this book is printed in a glorious over-sized edition with a cool sketch gallery  covers and D&D gameplay reading material. Elven Magic Verdict I have nothing but great things to say about this series and this volume in particular. I think the first was very good, but this one tops it. The Universe is ritcher, the plots are more developed and we get to see how it all began. This is a great fantasy comic book, a true D&D history indeed. Highly recommended.

Review: Orchid Volume 2

Review: Orchid Volume 2

By Rui Esteves in Reviews on February 28, 2013

Cover Orchid and the rebels finally reach Fortress Penuel. Even after all that lost in their journey, their resolve remain strong. They're going to rescue Anzio the leader of the rebels, no mater the cost. In Orchid Volume 2 the truth about General China and his fate is revealed, former allies come into play, new alliances are forged and recent ones start to show signs of rupture. Tom Morello keeps fanning the fires of revolution in this post-apolitical Earth where the chasm between social classes is so abysmal yet so familiar. He keeps his heroes righteous and on the path of liberation though vindication. How is it? This second volume starts with a funny and imaginative, but very violent, way our heroes found to get in Fortress Penuel. In fact all of the first chapter is very violent. Glorious graphic violence, guts, heads and explosions, but violence nonetheless. Orchid Volume 2 is packed with action scenes, great reveals, some predictable, others not so much. Opal, Orchid and Simon finally enter Fortress Penuel. There both Orchid and Opal will find some acquaintance from their past. For one it will bring hilarious closure, for the other dilution. That it boys... look this way After thickening the rebels ranks with a few more able bodies, our heroes set to free Anzio that is scheduled to be executed in later that day. The rescue mission is an action packed blitz strike that goes as well as you might imagine. General China's magical mask takes the spotlight, by being the force behind the rebel force. Its because of its power that the rebels are able to make an escape. However there might not be a happy ending for all. Hooky makes BOOM In between all the fighting and running we find out what really happened to General China and how Tomo Wolfe's reached power. Sadly this is undermined by predictable storytelling and a somewhat hard to swallow story plot. Basically Tomo Wolfe is a big technological genius that uses mechanical animal beasts to enforce his. In the devastated world of Orchid there little technology available but then suddenly there's and army of mechanical horses and robotic giants spiders and so on. This took me a bit out of the story. But it might just be a pet peeve. Art wise this is as good as the first volume. All the characters are truly unique, the world is beautifully rendered, The class difference of the difference inhabitants of Fortress Penuel are wonderfully drawn and colored. I love how Winkle's face scream traitor (don't worry, its not a spoiler). As in the first volume, this book comes with codes to download Tom Morello's music. One music per chapter. Verdict? This is a good series. The first volume (you can check the review here) introduce a new original Universe with interesting characters and a simple but compelling story line. This second volume brings closure to some big questions and setup a couple more. Even with its faults I had good fun reading this book. Recommended.
