Review: I, Mage #5
Even though Daravon teeters on the verge of war with the Overq’sai, Skirnir chooses to focus upon a local plight instead. A creature stalks the shepherds of the kingdom. Could this monster have an unexpected agenda? Continue to un-Urth a world of magic with Kai in this one-shot adventure.
The blended, action filled, fantasy comic continues in I, Mage #5 with its somewhat unorthodox story. The issue reveals the powerful nature of vengeance and forgiveness as Skirnir discovers a local village is missing a child. Except the missing child is not what she seems, when they manage to find her.
The nature of the story divides the artwork of this particular issue in two ways. Early pages have a much more light-hearted, and more bright style of art to them. While the latter pages are much darker in both story and art. It manages to showcase a great amount of contrast, as the settings switch from a castle to a small village.
