Soulfire #8

   You have to give it to this issue of Soulfire - it has everything you'd want in the wrap-up to a major storyline.

   It has a knock-down, drag-out fight between the good guys and a gigantic metallic dragon with multiple heads. It has one hero discovering that the woman he loves is actually a killer robot. It has faith lost and then restored. It's loaded with magic-based battles. And lots of stuff gets blown up.

   What more could anyone want?

   It features excellent artwork by V Ken Marion, who's equally at home with beautiful women as with hulking monsters and multi-armed villains. With powerful layouts and strong character designs, there's a lot to like here.

   The story may be a bit tough for new readers, but it's pretty easy to sort out the good guys from the bad, and the action is fast and furious from start to finish.

   J.T. Krul and Frank Mastromauro's story is a fun (and noisy) wrap to this adventure - and a strong setup for the next story arc. Good stuff!

Grade: B+
