    The more Bioware publishes Dragon Age comics, the more I wish for this universe to never ever die even after they're done with the game series. It's just a really good fantasy world, and getting to explore more of it is always a treat for me. In other news, (view spoiler)[Aaron is definitely a DA4 character, isn't he? Markus, Tessa, Vaea, and now Olivia will probably make some sort of appearance, but I feel like Hawthorne will be an important asset for the player, probably a way to make Ferelden The more Bioware publishes Dragon Age comics, the more I wish for this universe to never ever die even after they're done with the game series.

Dorian and Maevaris will be our way into Tevinter's politics, and given how all comic series set after DA3 involve people from the Inquisition, I feel like we'll still get to rely on whoever we made Divine to get Orlais' approval, on Josephine to get Antiva, on Sebastian for Starkhaven, on Varric for Kirkwall... Things are looking a lot less dire than they seemed after Trespasser, to be honest. The Evanuris better hold on to their butts, Thedas United is coming :) (hide spoiler)]

    More Dragon Age is always good, especially in locations far away from the video games. The world Bioware created is such a delight already; I will always take an opportunity to delve in again.I enjoyed this quick read, and subscribed to the series. The pacing of the story for me was quick while easy to follow. Our protagonist is a female con artist, stuck in a city on the verge of invasion. Her mark just happens to have plans of his own, and we're off on our adventure.Why 3 stars? First, the art More Dragon Age is always good, especially in locations far away from the video games.

Similar to other Dragon Age comics but occasionally the shading or character faces would pull me out of my enjoyment. In addition, the relationship between the protagonist and her mark develops (too) quickly, and has a levity that seems out of place for the looming threat overhangs everything. But that's not to take away from a good read, especially if you are a fan of the Dragon Age universe and already bought in to what that brings.

    I’ve recently learned that I really enjoy the Dragon Age comics, so naturally I had to give this new one a try. It seemed like a lighter concept on the whole, but we all know how deceptive that can be. Anyway, moving on. This is supposed to be a three part mini-series, meaning that I’m already a third of the way through the series…which is actually a sad thought.

Believe it or not, the series seems to be focused on a pair of con artists. Well, saying they’re a pair implies they’re working together, and they most assuredly don’t want to be doing that (though likely they won’t have a choice, if this goes anything like most Dragon Age plots do). This has been a fun series, so far. I actually sort of wish that it would be longer – though maybe I’ll change my mind about that once things get farther along. I guess I’ll have to wait and see.
