As the title says I read Faith Conquers, the first Iron Empires graphic novel. Here’s my brief review:
[li] The artwork is GORGEOUS
[/li][li]I like Trevor Faith. He’s a less jerk-like type of the characters I like to play: the firm believer who doesn’t take crap.
[/li][li]The narrative is alright, although it suffers for being only 4 issues long. I wanted to see Faith challenged to his core. The narrative went through it’s paces , sure, but it doesn’t quite hit home for me.
[/li][li]The setting is good.
[/li][li]All the characters are very distinct.
[/li][li]Some of the layouts are a bit confusing, but this was a minor hiccup for what’s an otherwise well laid-out story.
I think it’s a good testament to the game that I could read the book and see the maneuvers being played. Ultimately I’m glad I read the book, and I’m looking forward to reading Sheva Conquers
