5.0 out of 5 stars Great art, great story., 20 July 2012

This review is from: Michael Turner's Soulfire Definitive Edition Volume 1 TP (Paperback)
To help alleviate confusion, the Definitive Edition Volume 1 actually comprises both volume 1 and volume 2 of the original Soulfire volume (volume 1 in this case means "series 1") - and in addition it brings some bonus stories and art not included in the other volumes, so this is a good choice if you want the whole first volume.

With that done, if you've ever read any of Michael Turner's comics you'll know what to expect - especially if you are a fan of Fathom (also highly recommended) as the style is very similar - though whilst Fathom focuses heavily on modern-day watery environments, this is near-future urban sci-fi. The story itself is quite straightforward but nicely executed: Set in the year 2211 a young boy named Malikai finds himself one day being attacked by a winged woman, only to be saved by another called Grace who claims that he has a destiny - to bring magic back to the world. They set about on a journey of discovery trying to stay ahead of a sinister villain and his dragon which are laying waste to entire cities searching for him...

The characterisation is great, which all the characters being believable and different. The story is generally light, with a few darker spots (murder and mass destruction) but typical for the teen+ audience it is aimed at.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The fire within..., 2 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Michael Turner's Soulfire Definitive Edition Volume 1 TP (Paperback)
is hard to ignore.
I honestly do not know how Turner did it, but whenever he took the pencil into his hand something amazing came out of it. Witchblade, Fathom... and Soulfire.
This man was amazing and so is his book. The story around Soulfire is touching, hitting you so deep that you can't stop thinking about it and it hurts to know that there will be never anything like this before.
Michael Turner has set the standard of Graphic Novels to a higher level and many comic books and novels to not reach this standard so easily. Also his unique style in drawing is fantastic.
It is a great vision that has come to life and it should not be ignored. Every Turner fan should have read this piece of work, there is no getting around it.

We do miss you Michael!
