Comments: Aric is at war and he plans to become Emperor of the planet. With his drive and willpower and fighting skills, things seem right. He is a natural leader as well. Then add in the raw power of Shanhara and can he be stopped?
The art is done a little too dark making it at times hard to fully make out all the details.
As Aric faces the Emperor the Emperor is protected by a field that keeps out all but flesh. As you read this you think right away what an idiot the Emperor is. Aric first and foremost is a warrior he does not need his armor to fight and win.
Aric gets some advice from his former lady. It is very good advice. He may have won the war and now is Emperor of the planet but his problems have only just begun.
Aric is a man who does what he thinks is best. Next, we will see if this man can apply that to a planet.
