Review: The Stone King #2

The Stone King #2

The world is filled with “quicksand” and you may never know when you have stepped into it.  There is the literal sense of the word which most people only see in movies. Then there’s the metaphorical version, one which envelopes you when you least expect it. These are things throughout life that cause panic.

The first time I ever heard about it was in a movie called The Replacements starring Keanu Reeves and a now retired Gene Hackman. The way Reeves’ character described it in one scene is about getting so deep in trouble that you lose all senses. It was not until I joined the military and been in some near-death experiences that I felt what that sense of urgency was. In the second issue of The Stone King, we find Ave seeing firsthand the wrath she has unleashed.

We pick right up after the Stone King has invaded the city looking for what Ave took from him. As everything around her crumbles, she looks to save everyone she cares for. As Ave looks for healing moss to help someone close to her she soon gets arrested for looting. As the city guard humors Ave, he soon realizes that she may be the only hope city has before being totally demolished.

Overall, the second issue is action packed that’s a turning point for the series and happens to introduce us to some new characters. The story by Kel McDonald is lighthearted at points and heavy at other moments. The art by Tyler Crook is vivid and alluring. Altogether, it’s an excellent second issue that should bring in new fans.

Review: The Stone King #1

The Stone King #1

When it comes to stories revolving around thieves, there aren’t too many that grips you from the beginning. Thieves are usually frowned upon and rarely any redeeming qualities can be yielded from such characters. One of the more infamous thieves is Aladdin, a character which has been both glorified and villainized, depending on which interpretation you may follow. His heart is ultimately good and what he does is out of necessity.

One of the most storied thieves in fiction and quite possibly in history is Robin Hood. What most people know of this infamous thief, is that “he stole from the rich and gave to the poor.” His story is remixed once again in the new Taron Eggerton /Jamie Foxx movie. The film gives the legend a new twist as a heist thriller that takes place during medieval times. It lacks the cool tricks of modern heist stories but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t contain the same level of intrigue. The new comiXology Original digital comic series The Stone King also combines fantasy with melodrama and thrills.

Early in the comic we meet Ave, a thief born into the trade who harvests healing moss unbeknownst to the creature known only as the Stone King. It’s a method outlawed in the land. Her whole life changes when she finds a hidden treasure on the creature. It’s something that can change her fortunes. She returns home hoping that her haul has given her a new status with the guild of thieves. By issue’s end, The Stone King comes looking for the treasure Ave found and will not stop until it is found.

Overall, the comic is an engaging medieval caper that exceed expectations within the first few pages. The story by Kel McDonald is gripping and action packed. The art by Tyler Crook is beautiful. Altogether, the comic’s a heist story that’s so much more than that and will have readers wanting to read more.
