I bought the first volume of #Birthright months ago on an @imagecomics buy one-get one sale but never got around to reading it. On a shopping trip this weekend with @stephaniealancaster though, while I was standing outside bonding with the other men while the women were inside looking at bras, I noticed it was on #ComiXology Unlimited and I gave the first volume a thorough reading. Stephanie was so inspired by my adamant fanboying that she decided to pick up the other trades on the way home.
Birthright seamlessly ties together a magical fantasy world enthralled in war and the real world and its familiar trappings. More so, the comic explores complex ideas of loss and family tragedy and does so with more depth than I've ever seen. Birthright is quickly becoming one of my favorite comics, and #JoshuaWilliamson (who wrote a few of my other Image Comics favs -- #Nailbiter, #Ghosted, and #MasksandMobsters) is becoming one of my favorite creators. Artist #AndreiBressan brings the narrative to life with his lively and exciting artwork. I can't recommend this one enough.
