Eye of Newt cover

Eye of Newt #1

Eye of Newt is probably the most expositional comic I've ever read. There's barely a page that doesn't introduce some new element and the dialogue of some characters seems aimed entirely at spitting out world and plot details that another book might spend several issues slowly introducing and building up. It's a rapid fire approach that initially put me quite off. That being the case, the deeper I got into its story of wizard's apprentice preparing for a dangerous trial, the more I found myself enjoying it. The writing has a classic sensibility that almost reminded me of Tolkien. It also doesn't hurt, of course, that Eye of Newt's art is almost distractingly gorgeous. If you're a fan of high fantasy, give this book of a try.

Favorite Moment: "It is a place of dreams and nightmares."
