#6 may not be as immediately gripping and full of razor-sharp dialogue as previous instalments, but it certainly continues Reyn’s run of consistent and enjoyable issues. Some intriguing and dramatic storylines have been put into place, which will no doubt leave the reader eagerly awaiting #7 next month.
Elizabeth’s castle is in ruins, and neither her nor Penny Dora can find the Wishing Box – that they plan to use to fix the mess Elizabeth made.
Oddly Normal re-lives a sweet moment of the past, when her father and her (pregnant) mother received from her aunt the seeds of a magic Ever Autumn tree.
What if magic were real? What if science was just mankind’s way of making magic seem understandable? That’s the kind of world that Mythic #1 shows.
Reyn #5 proves to be another stellar instalment of an entertaining and well-made series; funny, fast-paced and excellently illustrated, Reyn has much potential and has been fairly consistent in quality throughout its run. There are a few aspects that will arguably improve in the next issues- when the group’s current location and objective change- but this reader is excited to wait it out and enjoy the ride.
Penny Dora’s friend Elizabeth borrowed the wishing box and made herself a princess. Penny tries to make her act sensibly, but her job won’t be easy.
Symons and Stockman have started to strike the perfect balance, and while Reyn could do with a little more humour to further separate it from other fantasy titles, it is certainly beginning to reach its potential and become a must-read action-fantasy title.
Penny Dora decides that her friend Elizabeth can have the wishing box for some hours. Was it the right choice?
