Amala’s Blade is a very random and very bright comic that never ceases to surprise me. Its warring purifiers and modifiers remind me of people arguing between sci-fi and fantasy. Why can’t we just have both? Will the purifiers and modifiers ever end their war? We still don’t know. What I do know is that what Amala finds out at the beginning of this issue is very…interesting.
This third issue has some crazy twists to it, but none more interesting than what happens right from the get go. Amala is a great female protagonist. She proves herself to be the ruthless assassin who everyone claims she is, and I mean REALLY proves it, in this issue. Amala, we have found out, is also very efficient. Use what is thrown at you, right? The ghosts who accompany Amala add some humor in this issue and bring more personification to themselves. I like the addition of them; they add some more “life” to the story…get it?
