Comments: The city of Ravnica where ten Guilds exist. There is way too much information in a short time. It is hard to remember it all and understand it all. The art is vague with its subdued tones. The colors are soft.
Two of the Guild Masters find themselves under attack, Ral Zarek and Vraska. Three Guild Master’s were attacked yet the way it was presented it seemed as if only two were. It should have been made clearer.
Jace Beleren the Mind-Mage is brought in to find answers and instead more questions are created.
The three Guild Masters are brought together to act together to protect themselves from this attack and more to come.
There are way too many questions left unanswered. The characters a few you are told about the rest you are left guessing about.
Is this a fantasy, sci-fi, mystery story, or a combination of all three?
The characters presented need to be stronger and explained more. The setting for the comic needed to be made clearer.
The fight scenes of the actual fighting are done well and deliver an action-packed battle.
