Review: King’s Road #3

25735

The conclusion to the first King’s Road story arc! On the run after being ambushed by the witch Malicia’s army of monsters, Don and his family search for a secret doorway into the magical land of Avalon. As Malicia moves to put an end to Don’s royal clan, an old family friend comes to the rescue!

It’s fantasy and action from writer Peter Hogan!

In this final issue of the first volume of King’s Road, the battle concludes, but the war has just begun. Even Don’s wife manage to get in a shot quite literally before Malicia flees. Unfortunately that only aggravates her, as things finally start to go right for once. Malicia flees, after the transformed princess sacrifices herself to wound the evil sorceress. The family flees away, seeking help against the usurper.

Despite the limited environment of this issue, the amount of action throughout is drawn with great skill by Staz Johnson. The sheer destruction of the monsters is showcased briefly, but well as the small battle ends. I wont spoil the end, but the unique getaway vehicle for the royal family was an artistic shock.

Review: King’s Road #2

25734

Still reeling from the revelation that their family’s from another dimension, Ashley and Tyler get a history lesson on Avalon and the mythical forces there. Stocking up at a local mall for their journey to this strange realm, the family is attacked by a batch of bizarre creatures sent by the evil queen Malicia!

Modern and classic fantasy clash, as the unique, action filled King’s Road continues. This issue helps introduce a good chunk of backstory of how the royal family came to be in Avalon. Writer Peter Hogan also reveals how Avalon got its name.

For a fantasy themed comic, the artwork by Phil Winslade and Staz Johnson is extremely realistic. Despite the classic fantasy elements the artists managed to keep the artwork grounded in reality, or as grounded as they can. The large battle type scene inside the mall, is filled with an atmosphere of chaos as the royal family fights back against the army of Malicia.
