Autumnlands Vol 1: Tooth and Claw by Kurt Busiek, Benjamin Dewey, Jordie Bellaire, and Comicraft (2015)

This series is an interesting political fantasy featuring anthropomorphic animal characters who use magic to summon a legendary champion unlike anything they’ve seen before. It’s sort of like Redwall meets Game of Thrones, though not as complex as Game of Thrones.

Artwork has a historic, kind of dirty look to it that works with the feel of the story.

I didn’t get as attached to the characters as I’d have liked, but a bull terrier protagonist scores points with me. It’s a decent read, set in a world that has potential, but I’m not sure I care enough about the characters to read past this point.

3/5 stars
