    One thought on “Demon Knights, Volume 3: The Gathering Storm”

    1. Decent ending provided closure Stories jumped around a bit, as did artists, but overall an enjoyable medieval magical adventure ties to Stormwatch too forced

    2. Fight for Avalon 13 15 Cornell s final three issues are a fair conclusion to his run He s set up the plotlines, and this is mainly about bringing them to a conclusion I have no idea why this wasn t in the previous volume, as it s just three issues long and it s the end of that story 7 10.Vampires 16 19 Venditti s Demon Knights is unfortunately another step down I felt like the characterization wasn t as strong and wasn t thrilled by his decision to remove two of the characters with a 20 year tim [...]

    3. At the heart of this team is a heteronormative relationship between Jason Blood and Madame Xanadu but there is also Ystin and Ex the exiled who make for an interesting couple Meanwhile, we have an always conniving Vandal Savage and the woe will not be me Horsewoman Etrigan might be the demon in the Demon Knights but he s certainly not the most exciting character Unfortunately we don t get much Al Jabr but we do get some Lucifer Overall, this is a good read for fantasy fans and anybody looking fo [...]

    4. The Dark Ages DC book takes an inevitable nosedive with Cornell s departure and some very dodgy art, but the concluding chapters could still be a lot worse They re saved largely by the gleefully awful Vandal Savage, who combines the appetites of an immortal monster with the impulse control of a tired baby.

    5. The worst thing about this volume is that it s the last one, since DC cancelled the title The overarching saga comes to a reasonably satisfying state of closure, while still leaving open the possibility of future stories that could be told, if the publisher ever comes to their senses and revives the book Oh, DC, why did you have to get so dumb in the past few years.

    6. I will miss this title.I thought the whole run was a strong fantasy series that should have found it s audience.There were some things I did not like, like horsewoman now talking to horses all the time But I m sad it was cancelled.

    7. Highlights of the Hell portion for me were the reactions of the Shining Knight, Horsewoman, and suprisingly Vandal Savage to their predicaments Shining Knight is probably my fave over all, with the Exoristos a close second But really the whole team is just so interesting.Once Cornell left this book, it took a definite dive in terms of quality and what I found interesting At one point I read a passage and went, That doesn t sound like Cornell, and went to actually check the credits, and ahhh I th [...]

    8. Demon Knights isn t a series that s going to go down in history, but it was certainly fun while it lasted In this day and age where critically acclaimed DC and Marvel comics are lucky to last a year, if they don t contain star characters or have star writers attached to them, it s quite remarkable that this title was able to last the 23 issues that it did But, after original writer Paul Cornell left, it was only able to hold out for a single remaining story arc This isn t surprising, as the qual [...]

    9. It had been a while since I read the Demon Knight earlier volumes, so it took me a little bit to get caught up to speed, but the story made it fairly painless And the story hits a high point early on, finishing the second volume s story with a fairly epic confrontation From there, a third story, set decades later, takes the demon Knights to Themyscira and up against Cain and vampires The story works surprisingly well, with some surprising twists and turns, and some strong action moments The char [...]

    10. A truly amazing conclusion to an overlooked comic series I really enjoyed the Demon Knights books DC has a done a great job reintroducing unknown characters like Shining Knight, Xanadu, Vandal Savage, and of course Kirby creation Etrigan I think the struggle between Jason Blood and his demonic other half is always fascinating After all everyone has their own personal demons to battle Jason just has to literally I really enjoyed Benard Chang s art on the book as well I hope DC considers doing a s [...]

    11. Third volume contains the closure of the story arc by Paul Cornell, which started in vol.1 2 and I don t understand why those three issues were added to vol.3 not to vol.2 , and has two story arcs by a new writer Robert Venditti The stories themselves are ok after all you are not expecting much from a comic like this, but these last stories lack almost any humor The worst part is the art somehow they decided to make it a test filed for the artists, and after beautiful work of Diogenes Nevis in v [...]

    12. The Demon Knights are the first version of Stormwatch Oh wait, was I supposed to announce that that was a spoiler It is kind of in the title for this trade Man, it was a nice surprise, after being on a Valiant kick, to see that Robert Vendetti is the one who took over this book, after Paul Cornell left It is too bad that, ultimately, the book got cancelled This trade did a great job of tying up the loose ends from Cornell s run, and just continuing to deliver adventures starring these intriguing [...]

    13. Definitivamente este es el mejor de los tres tomos La historia fluye al tiempo que distribuye buenas ideas en cada episodio Incluso se baraja la posibilidad de establecer una continuidad de este imaginario medieval con las colecciones DC ambientadas en la modernidad Los elementos m gicos, m ticos tecnol gicos est n manejados con destreza y mezclados h bilmente con elementos hist ricos, lamentablemente la serie es cancelada aunque le dan tiempo a los creadores para hacerlo con cierta solvencia Po [...]

    14. Farewell, Demon Knights I got the same feeling reading this series as I got watching that old Saturday morning Dungeons and Dragons cartoon from the 1980s It s wild fantasy adventure and we re not likely to get it this good again for a while.The ending was a bit rushed Actually, I think it was way rushed And we all know that questing for the Holy Grail is going to be a bad idea but here we do it with the Demon Knights and it s as fun as it ever was.

    15. The ending of Paul Cornell s run was decent enough, if a bit too heavy on the use of Merlin and King Arthur The beginning of Venditti s work was interesting in introducing the vampire and side of the magical world, but lost it s way towards the end of the series by once again returning to Arthurian myth This repetitive theme caused the characters to become stale, never really growing and changing.

    16. Really enjoyed the mix of epic fantasy and super heroes.Shame that it was such a slow process to set up this world and these characters, because by the time the writer had a solid handle on everything the series was on the chopping block.Also liked how Cornell hinted at the Knights being the origin of Stormwatch.
