Bleak? Pfft. It's the dark ages. What'd you expect, a carnival of good feelings?
Volume 2 is absolutely dark. As it should be. Christians were assholes in their holy crusade, and Wood's anger bleeds from the pages. Magnus the Black is fucking shit up and taking names, while slowly unraveling the w...

This is billed as a "Magnus the Black Mystery" at least ten times in the book, but the only mystery is why Brian Wood deems this a mystery. There's no mystery here, there's barely a plot other than "How bleak can we make this?" Julia saves people, then rats them out and we still don't have any an...

In the second volume about Magnus the Black we follow him and Kitta the blacksmith to the Christian bastion. There is still a "holy man" to deal with. Funnily enough, he is a threat to the Vatican as much as to the people of the North since he wants to unseat the Pope and become the leader of all...

Overall an enjoyable series and a good second half. While the story is sometimes unclear, especially what happens between some of the characters, the artwork is great and there are some pretty exciting moments. It seems this could have been developed more strongly with two more volumes, and Brian...

With the first Black Road volume, I couldn't really figure out why Magnus was so hellbent on destroying Bishop Oakenfort, but was happy to go along for the ride because Magnus, his companions, and this Viking world were so compelling. Now that we're in volume two, I expected some answers...and re...

The good: the art is beautiful and is the best thing about this book. The coloring is superb. This is a book that’s set in the dark ages, which we don’t get enough of.
The bad: this entire series was 10 issues long, but it could’ve been cut down to 6. This is the single most decompressed comic I’...
