1001 Arabian Nights: The Adventures of Sinbad #4

1001 Arabian Nights: The Adventures of Sinbad #4 (Zenescope – Wickline / Adrian)

Sinbad and crew jump right into the fire in this sizzling hot issue! They must face the guardians of the Temple of Kubrit Amud, also known as FIRE DEMONS! Sinbad has only one hope… but at what cost? Back on Ma’rut, Semelia continues to fight her new captor as Alorana learns just how much talent the young woman possesses.

This high action fantasy adventure continues down the fast track to pulp excitement.  Sinbad and his crew have made it past the dragon to enter the Island of Katan.  Adn now they face hot demon fire-babes with literal hearts of coal.  Very cool story!  Over-the-top fast-paced heroics, creative monsters and fun eye candy make this the perfect book for any gaming fan-boy!

Zenescope has expanded their <!– /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:””; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:”Times New Roman”; mso-fareast-font-family:”Times New Roman”;} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} –> repertoire with this non-horror driven addition to their monthly line-up.   1001 Arabian Nights will be a fantastic trade when it gets that far.  The only negative this month is a switch in artists.  I hope this is a temporary swap and not something that will impact this book in the long run.  Up until issue #4, the art has been of a high-quality pin-up style.  It was dramatic poses you could believe in.  Ron Adrian has stepped in this issue and it’s not that he’s a bad artist, but it was a much more animated feel, in both action and figures, than what this book has had.  It’s kind of like you want a handsom guy to play the “Indiana Jones” role.  The bottom line, is you need a hot artist to pull off muscle bound protagonists and bad-girl sorceress types.

Well, here’s to hoping to success for Sinbad!
