Glory #27

Written by Joe Keatinge
Art by Ross Campbell

At the centre of Joe Keatinge and Ross Campbell's relaunch of the old Rob Liefeld property Glory is the notion that the title character may never have been a 'good guy' at all.

In this issue, the island town of Mont St. Michel has been invaded by a variety of strange creatures from Glory's father's kingdom.  We know that they are trying to kill her, and are after Riley, the young woman who has been our point-of-view character since the relaunch began, and whose destiny is somehow tied to Gloriana's, although we've not been given many clues as to how.

Basically, this issue gives Campbell a chance to cut loose artistically, creating a plethora of strange creatures and cool fight scenes.  We also get a flashback to Gloriana's childhood, and the suggestion that Riley may be picking the wrong side in things.  At some point, Keatinge is going to have to give us a little more information, but I am definitely enjoying the ride so far, the art most of all.
