Valen, The Outcast #4 from BOOM! Studios ~ What'cha Reading?

Valen, The Outcast #4 from BOOM! Studios


One of the reasons I started writing reviews was that reviewers I read tended to repeat themselves. Every couple of weeks they’d be extolling the virtues of the newest issue of the same book they were talking about last time.

Well here I go falling into the same trap.

The latest issue of Valen is worth writing about, Matteo Scalera’s art is awesome as usual and the story arc is progressing well. Above all else it’s the dialogue that keeps me coming back for each issue.

An exchange from a glorious battle between Ivo and Valen; “…submit to his will and he will lay the spoils of the world at your feel” Valen’s response “He took everything from me, and you think to woo me with gifts of rot and ruin?””He has nothing I want but my soul. And I will have it back!”

Conversations like that, in the heat of battle are what books of this nature are all about. I love this book. I’ll keep coming back, trust me check it out.
