A fantastical re-imagination of Arthurian legends, Sword of Ages #3 (IDW Publishing) continues with its epic-sized narrative that will truly delight and thrill readers. The third installment transcends the visuals and explores the story’s themes.
As we previously mentioned, this is an all-new vision of the Excalibur myth. Now that the Sacred Sword has been drawn, Avalon and her new companions must work against overwhelming odds. As Avalon attempts to prevent all-out war, new villains are introduced and allegiances are being questioned.

The first installment introduced young warrior known as Avalon, who clashes with rising tyrants. The second installment reinvented the Lady in the Lake and the Sword in the Stone. The antagonist, Lord Morgan, is creating an internal power struggle that will explode with a rebellion.
4) World-Building At Its Best!
Writer/artist Gabriel Rodriguez will captivate readers with a thrilling battle sequence between Ourgon and Huss. Notice how these two leaders battle during a sword duel in an action-packed two-pager. Notice the determined look on Huss’ expressions as he swings his sharp blade.
3) The Colors!
Colorist Lovern Kindzierski emphasizes the “mountain of muscles” on Ourgon. His purple skin has black lines that detail his gigantic physicality. Notice how the elders are draped in white and grays.
Caledia has a unique and detailed design of his environment. The over-sized room is supposed to resemble a religious temple, and yet there’s a floating hologram in the center of the room.
1) A Fanastic Read!
