Comments: A person engulfed in flame approaches the castle. He is a Fireling. She seeks help. The coloring looks amazing on her with the fire surrounding her. She sees bad and good in those she came to for help. She makes her plea to Lord Jen and Lady Kira.
Now unless you know about the Dark Crystal and have read other comics or watched the show you will be hard pressed to know what is going on here.
The art is vague and very subdued. The Crystal is unimpressive.
The characters other than the Fireling are not explained who they are in any detail.
Both story and art are lacking. The Dark Crystal and the characters that go along with it can provide an entertaining read with visuals.
