Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A young woman troubled by dreams of a missing superhero leaves home to search for her only to discover she's more involved in the worlds-shattering saga of a godlike warrior than she could have ever imagined. Keatinge and Campbell beautifully craft a compelling reintroduction to the character of Glory, seen through the eyes of Riley Barnes. When Riley finds Glory hiding and healing from injuries in Mont San Michel, France, she soon discovers that she may be destined not to save Glory, but to save the world from Glory. From the uncontrollable anger of a woman created to be a weapon to end a war by beings far more powerful than anything on Earth by destroying both sides. Campbell's art is stunning, creating a female hero who is physically intimidating in a way never seen in superhero comics and creating worlds both familiar and fantastically bizarre, and characters ranging from friendly old French bartenders to armies of individually distinct demon-like creatures from another world. . Keatinge's story gives instant depth to its complex characters and excels at slowly presenting a more and more complex narrative spanning thousands of years and several worlds and cultures. (Sept.)
