Comic Book Review: Knights of the Golden Sun #11
By Rebecca Benson
It is a quest. A quest for the archangels to find the much-needed pieces of armor– before it’s too late. Knights of the Golden #11, from Mad Cave Studios, continues their heroic journey. But to move forward, one of their own, Shammah, must revisit his past. Shammah has to remember his days of being in the House of David. It is essential he realizes just who and whose he is. Shammah is given the knowledge needed to conquer his hindrances and face the future that awaits him. Will Shammah be able to learn from his youth? Will he even be successful?
Being a well-established series, Knights continues to deliver an extremely enjoyable issue! I was entranced by its first issue. Being able to read so many exceptional books has been a thrilling ride. You can’t go wrong when writer Mark London masterfully weaves stories straight from the Bible with his own imaginings. Artist Mauricio Villarreal is top notch! Villarreal’s triumph has to be his use of colors. They are never dull, even as we dive into Shammah’s flashback, expertly set up with desert, sandy tones. His vivid images offer a glance as to what spiritual kingdoms–and their entities–look like. Ones that we earthly beings may never experience. Add to the mix letterer Justin Birch’s talent. Birch’s dialogue is easily readable. Lucifer and his followers give readers chills as the font and colors change within their discourse. Readers are able to delineate which side of the heavenly realms –and whom– they serve. Know that you won’t find spoilers in this review, but you absolutely have to see the last page! It perfectly sets up the perpetuation of the story! I don’t know if I can wait for the next issue’s release!
Keep reading and enjoying this series! #11 is set to release soon! Don’t miss this one!
