Review: Acursian Chapter 24
There are always those parts in the big action movies, where it seems like the heroes will probably lose. It is where the audience, suddenly suspends disbelief , because they are invested. It is where you realize that the people you are rooting for may not get out of it alive. That is why the movies of the MCU are so compelling.
As the Avengers movies, proved to movie fans, those characters’ times on screen was finite. There were real consequences for every action taken. This is why when Vision was killed both times, it was truly heartbreaking. In Acursian Chapter 24, we find our heroes in the midst of the fight which also has real consequences.
We open up on Alison and Rory shortly after reuniting with Charlie and Nate, as they know they have to get to the Isle Of Shadows to save Ceillach. We find Corra battling Bregon’s Dark Army, where she gets a little help from Nate, as we soon find out just how powerful he really is. We also find Connell have her Battle Royale with Bregon, one final fatal fight, that will leave one of the siblings meeting their ultimate end.By issue’s end, Charlie attempts to awaken Ceillech as Bregon comes even closer to his goal.
Overall, Acursian Chapter 24 is an exceptional entry in the series that begins the penultimate phase of the story The story by John Barrowman, Carole Barrowman, and Erika Lewis is worthwhile. The art by Beni Lobel is enthralling. Altogether, it’s a chapter that astonishes by excellent storytelling.
