Footloose and fancy free. That is the first phrase that comes to mind when reading Time & Vine #1. If someone I knew had direct access to time travel and it involved imbibing wine, I would be all in. No hesitation, nothing. Just give me a drink and let’s go enjoy the ride.

Issue number one of Skyward set the stage for what seems to be an epic fantasy tale for all ages. Action Lab has just released Skyward #2 from creator Jeremy Dale; but does it hold up to the quality of the previous installment?
When Richard, the town regent, hears word of the devastating events that took place in issue one, he sends out a search party to find Quinn. Richard’s eager teenage daughter, Abigail””a hunter and tracker””leads the expedition along with her friend Jon and his father, Tanner. As the group follows Quinn’s tracks, it eventually becomes clear that Quinn was chased by Slog-Riders and as they continue along Quinn’s route, the three make a terrifying discovery. Meanwhile, returning to his army’s camp, Herod receives word from the kings’ messengers, The Vox, that the kings are not happy with Herod’s procrastination of invasion.
