Page 45 Review by Jonathan

"What did you do? At least the ghosts weren't eating us!"
"Get out of the way! He won't harm me... he only eats the cursed!"
"Are you kidding me? You hold the sword! You're cursed! I explained this!"
"Riiiiiiiiight."

It's just another ordinary day for a most unordinary girl when Stephanie, a human raised by trolls in the muddy moat of a castle, is nearly sliced in two by a sword falling from the sky. In fact, there are a lot of things spontaneously falling into the village of Deepmoat, almost as if people (and bridge trolls) keep deliberately throwing them in there...

So when a knight promptly, and unfortunately for him fatally, drops in as well, immediately rising as a ghost cursed to follow whoever has his sword, generally doing their heads in with smart-arsed running commentary, Stephanie has had enough!

It's time to look for some answers, seek out adventure, and generally get out of the godforsaken dump that is Deepmoat. Along the way there'll be monsters aplenty, more than a few dungeons, but most certainly fun. Who'd have thought that risking life and limb swinging steel could be so invigorating?!

This neatly straddles the divide between ADVENTURE TIME-esque material aimed at teens and adults, and Phoenix-type material like BUNNY VS. MONKEY, FISH HEAD STEVE, STAR CAT BOOK 1 etc. aimed at younger kids. It's heavy on the laughs and light on the peril without skimping on the danger. Fans of daft fantasy generally will approve. The art style is nice and simple, adding to the cartoony feel.
