When DC announced their Third Wave, only one title stood out to me: Sword of Sorcery. Team 7 looked generic (although I've been hearing good things from it), Phantom Stranger looked boring (and still does) and I'm not interested on Talon.
So, I picked up Sword of Sorcery 0, and I was quite surprised, but not for the reasons you may think. The part of the book I was looking forward the most was Amethyst, and I have to say that I was a good, quick (yet not rushed) and entertaining start. Nothing amazing, but it's the first (kinda) issue, so I'm willing to give the book a chance. Well, that and the surprise cameo at the end.
I was not looking forward to Beowulf. I mean, it's not Superman or Batman, or something cool, it's freaking Beowulf! But, I paid 4 bucks for this comic, so I might as well be sure I get my money's worth from this comic. Boy, I was in for a surprise. Beowulf turned out to be an engaging story with great art. The basic premise of Beowulf's legend is set up in this issue, but Beowulf himself gets a nice twist, which I really liked.
So, what about you? Did you pick up Sword of Sorcery? And if you did, what were your thoughts?
