New books by Paul Pope, John Lewis, Jordan Mechner and Gris Grimly.
Templar reviewed on Examiner.com (5 stars): "A must for history buffs, action-adventure fans and anyone who enjoys a good epic yarn."
“Templar” offers action and intrigue enough to fill several summer blockbusters, but also boasts incredibly rich historical details, beautiful artwork and a story solid enough that it instills a “must-know-what-happens-next” sense of urgency in the reader. To read it is to know pure immersive joy that makes an oft explored subject feel new once again.
