A different flavor of the God of War
The Savage Axe of Ares
The cover pretty much reviews this book by itself. “Skull-splitting metal mayhem featuring Marvel’s God of War.”
That is exactly what this book is. Inside the reader finds 3 short stories and what seems like a fan-fic type tribute depicting the role that Ares had played in major battles throughout history. The art is very pulpy and it gives it the personality of an indy book.
We may have watched him be ripped in half recently in SIEGE, but this Heavy Metal style tribute to Ares should be a must read for Ares fans. It gives readers insight into Ares’ motivations and even a little bit of what he would probably call fairness.
This was excellent and I hope it does well on the racks because I would not mind seeing more Marvel titles like this one.
4 out of 5 Golden Fleece (You will have to read to know what that means…but you won’t regret it one bit.)
