To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Whilst the first two volumes were exciting, filled with action scenes and character development and a couple of interesting villians, I don’t feel like this was the proper conclusion to the prequel, telling the story of prince Maxim.
Once again we have Olimpieri’s art and while it did work in the first volume, I think the coloring was far too dark in this one. Some scenes really made me squeeze my eyes so I could see what was going on.
The pacing felt too rushed too (even for a graphic novel/comic) and the ending was anticlimactic to say the least. I don’t know if this was Schwab’s intention but I really felt disappointed. I’m not sure if there will be another volume because it ended with a cliff-hanger and we still have questions left unanswered, but if this was the actual ending, then it’s a bummer.
Would I recommend it? Yes, despite this volume, the prequel gives us a better understanding of how Red London looks like.
