The graphic novel's graphic novel.
Comics nowadays are hit or miss. It's nice to see a book that comes along that reminds me why I read comics. Sons of Fate is JUST THAT. Not only is it beautifully drawn, but emotionally deep and extremely character driven. I can't wait to see what happens after Origins. A MUST GET for not only comic book readers, but for people who like GREAT storytelling in general. GREAT BOOK!!!!
