This thread is for discussion of the comic Gathering Forces, which will be published on three successive Thursdays on magicthegathering.com.
Very interesting. It looks like there may have been something between Ajani and Elspeth at one point.
Now we know how Elspeth gets her sword back and knows how Phyrexia is on Mirrodin. Interesting choice by Koth to brand himself with Phyrexia's mark. He certainly put himself at risk with that one.
I thought the writing was pretty good, nothing too ridiculous. The illustration didn't quite work for me though.
I thought Elspeth got "kicked" by Nicol Bolas in the battle over Alara.... Planeswalking is like "7 degrees" where you have to know somebody or something that's been to a plane to get there. Usually that means at least decades to get back from some obscure plane from Nicol's dusty memory. Good to see Venser get some play too, he's been around since Time Spiral and all we got was a Sliver from him. Sounds like Elsepeth may have been around during the events of "Time Spiral" to know what Phyrexians are an how to fight them (and I was hoping she was from Ulgrotha and had a famous mom)
Excellent comic this week; Jenna does good work with Elspeth, as we already knew. Koth is also interesting - a red mage who doesn't take the first excuse he gets to hit something with his hammer. I'm liking where this is going.
i liked the comic but elspeth is getting uglier every day.
Much better than I was expecting, though still a little on the goofy side.
One thing that really sticks out is using a computer generated font in the speech balloons. I supposed that's for easier translation for worldwide distribution, but it still makes it look cheap.
Some of those expressions are terrible. And the dialogue is still stilted and boring. Though I did read through the whole thing, so it is an improvement over the previous ones.
