Demon Knights #6 - The Balance Review5
Vandal Savage leads the Siege of Little Spring. Hope you like awesomeness.
Vandal Savage leads the siege with Questing Queen and Mordru against the Demon Knights. Madame Xanadu tries to "balance the scales" by making a sacrifice. Also in this issue, dinosaurs and giant, metal dragons.
I've never giggled more from excitement then when Vandal Savage yelled out of a bullhorn "Send in the dragons!" This book makes me love Vandal Savage, a character I had truly no opinion of prior to this series, more and more every issue. He's a weird, pompous, wild-card of a character.
The five-year-old inside of me went off-the-wall nuts for this issue. It has everything I could ever want in a comic: epic battles, a Pegasus, people riding a triceratops, dino-men weilding swords, and dragons. Essentially, this book is filled with over-the-top, memorable imagery that will have you glued to the book from start to finish.
This issue is great for action lovers, but it won't let down those who love story-driven books. This issue is a bit more action-orientated, but there's some great story set-up for the upcoming issues, including some more Jason Blood/Etrigan/Madam Xanadu love-triangle business. I'm still not sure whether Xanadu is to be trusted at this point, and what her intentions are with Etrigan and Jason Blood. I'm more confused than anything, but in a good way.
This is an amazing creative team. Paul Cornell has truly help create a stand-out book that's not just guys in tights saving people from other guys in tights. He took familiar faces and put them into a book that's incredibly fun. The art is so amazing. I mention it every time for a reason, it's at least top three of the art from the new 52. You've ever been excited from an artist drawing a horse? You will with Demon Knights when you see Diogenes Neves, Robson Rocha, Oclair Albert, and Marcelo Maiolo's art.
Not applicable. Buy this book.
This is one of my favorite books of the new 52, next to BATMAN and AQUAMAN, but I've said that a few times already. I love everything about this book, and I'd highly suggest hopping on this book as soon as possible so you don't miss out on all the fun. Seriously, buy this book.
