Rex Mundi #15

Written by Arvid Nelson
Art by Juan Ferreyra

I was thinking well reading this how fortunate Nelson was to gain Ferreyra as a partner for this title. His art and use of colour fits the themes and feel of this book much better than any of the earlier artists did. The earliest issues by EricJ were interesting, but more old-school Image, and the tone of the book has really shifted away from that.

You can tell that Nelson is close to finishing his story. The pace here if very quick, and the stakes keep getting higher. I like how the grail, which was such an object of mystery in the early days, is treated so off-handedly here. I'm not sure how many issues remain in this series, but I hope it's a lot, as I'm enjoying it more than ever.
