A great comic with two different issius in it. Could be longer, especially when you think about that there is two stories in this. But i also liked that we got a taste of both of them. It makes one want to read them both. I have not read Assassin’s Creed before, but these makes me want to read them. In paticular the first one, because here it’s an awesome woman who is the main character.
Assassin’s Creed: The Chair
Here we see Charlotte De La Cruz, a WOC being in the mind of her ancester, to get some information. To do that she is sitting in this special chair who sends her back.
I really liked this story, even if it was so short. Firstly the main character is woman and POC. It is so awesome to see. She looks and sounds like a badass person already in those few pages. She reminds me a little of Anita Blake from Anita Blake: The Vampire Hunter. She is a little crass and it’s told that she has little to no patience. But diffently she also has a softer side, which is already shown. I really hope they don’t do this character wrong.
Assassin’s Creed Templars: Great Wall
It’s about this man who are part of the brotherhood. He is in China to stop a big metaltrain to go further.
I liked this one. The main character is awesome, badass and mysthyrius. You can see on the few pages already, that he is really talentfull and fast at things. I like his choice of weapon. I really love swords in stories.
Sorry for the small review, it’s hard to review such a small text.
But i can recommend it to them who is on the fence on reading Assassin’s Creed. It’s a good look into how it look. Plus it’s a free sample on Amazon.
Thank you for reading and have a nice day! ♥
