Alterna constantly throws titles my way that are a lot of fun, imaginative and just cool.

Blood Realm is no different. It’s a dark fantasy in a sort of sword and sorcery setting. It has its own mythology which is well established and explained in this series.

Dark Covenant is comprised of three issues and this story arc is the first part of a trilogy. It’s hard to tell how good this will be going forward but this was a solid setup for the larger story.

I absolutely loved the art. It’s dark, menacing and enchanting. The main character is pretty interesting and comes to us in an unusual way. It’ll be neat seeing how this all unfolds moving forward, as this definitely isn’t just a rehash of fantasy or sword and sorcery stories that we’ve seen before.

This is a top notch indie comic and a refreshing read. I’m always down for something different and this was exactly that. I look forward to the two future story arcs.

Rating: 7.5/10
Pairs well with: future Blood Realm releases and other fantasy comics by Alterna.
