This issue picks up with Alistair, Isabela and Varric getting acquainted with the Witch of The Wilds, Yavana. Alistair, who is familiar with her family lineage, seems justified in his skepticism of her. After reaching an understanding, Yavana gives Alistair what he came for, information on his father, King Maric. He quickly learns that the answers he’s seeking are far more complex than he had ever imagined. Then…all hell breaks loose when an unexpected visitor arrives and attempts to stop Alistair, Isabela and Varric dead in their tracks!
This issue is much better than the last one. The story is interesting and it picks up the pace considerably. There is some action and the relationship that has developed between Alistair, Isabela and Varric is really nice to see. The camaraderie is believable and adds a little something extra to the comic as a whole. As usual, the art is fantastic and the dialog is at its best so far. I can’t wait for the next issue. It seems like the issue will have some focus on Isabela and Varric, which is great because those characters are my favorite part of the comic. This series is right back on track and with only two more issues to go it’s a safe bet that things are about to get super interesting!
