Dragon Age Review

    An aging knight and his elven squire travel from town to town telling stories of the knight's heroics. His squire is actually a thief, stealing from the rich of each town and giving to the poor. I liked the main characters, they had a lot of heart. I also liked the conflict of the competing thieves. The art was a little too anime looking for my tastes.Received a review copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

    A Ripping "Dragon Age" Tale That Works As A Stand-aloneAs I understand it, "Dragon Age" is a wildly successful high fantasy role-playing video game series created by BioWare. The first game came out in 2009, and there have been multiple sequels and all sorts of spinoffs, novels, comics, and the like.This TP collects the first 5 issues of "Dragon Age: Knight Errant", which is set in the Dragon Age world, fits into the Dragon Age history, and references Dragon Age characters, places, and events, b A Ripping "Dragon Age" Tale That Works As A Stand-aloneAs I understand it, "Dragon Age" is a wildly successful high fantasy role-playing video game series created by BioWare. The first game came out in 2009, and there have been multiple sequels and all sorts of spinoffs, novels, comics, and the like.This TP collects the first 5 issues of "Dragon Age: Knight Errant", which is set in the Dragon Age world, fits into the Dragon Age history, and references Dragon Age characters, places, and events, but otherwise seems to work well as a stand-alone action/adventure story.The set up is that our hero, a landless knight, has a glorious history, a drunken present and not much of a future. He spends his time wandering the world, living off his celebrity, and telling tales of heroic adventure to amuse his hosts. He has a female, elven, squire, which is unheard of but generally accepted. As you no doubt suspect, our knight is a man of more substance and nobility than he pretends and his squire is clever, quick-witted, and really more of an adventuring partner. The two have various adventures as they travel from kingdom to kingdom and feel like a cross between Robin Hood and Secret Medieval Agents, with lots of drinking and a touch of Monty Python's Grail knights added.So, while the comic observes all of the appropriate conventions, doesn't mock the genre, fits into the canon, and offers a fair share of action, suspense, plot and backstory, it is also cheerful and rollicking in a grand romantic adventure sort of way. I don't know the Dragon Age universe and I still got into the story with ease. The drawing is a bit old school, but the action is clear and the characters are expressive and always well rendered and detailed. The overall effect is sharp with a sly bit of a wink, and that was fine by me. This was an entertaining find.(Please note that I received a free advance will-self-destruct-in-x-days Adobe Digital copy of this book without a review requirement, or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)

    3.5 starsShort and sweet DA story that is able to stand on its own. As per usual, our protagonist has a difficult upbringing/coming of age. They touch on some heavy material, but at the same time nothing too gory or heart wrenching. In fact, (dare I say it) the ending is actually quite touching! It was nice to have a DA story that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside for once. I enjoyed the artwork quite a lot (more than the Dragon Age Omnibus). Would be interested in seeing more DA graphic novel 3.5 starsShort and sweet DA story that is able to stand on its own. As per usual, our protagonist has a difficult upbringing/coming of age.

    Woah, I forgot to update that I finished this. Can’t remember when but it was sometime in January. I really actually liked it, they were a few parts I was confused at and sometimes the art looked a little wonky (most of the time I loved it) but overall the story was really interesting.

More importantly, the book shows the evolution of the Inquisition's power in Dragon Age's world and how wide it has spread.Many thanks to Dark Horse Comics for review copy.
