    Over the past year, this has hands down been one of my favorite comics. After a hiatus, I’m so glad they’re back and the story picked right up where it left us. Overall The Hunger and the Dusk is a love story during a time where love is not a priority. War seems to be everywhere while the lands are dying. Resources are limited, and The Vangol keep closing in. In the end can anything actually save both human and orckind: Love, diplomacy, armies, healers?

    Wilson returns with a fantastic story of high adventure and fantasy that is gripping and engaging. The story adds some interesting complications for the characters as well as ramp up the drama both personal and external. I really enjoy the love story elements within and everything in the issue creates great moments for Cal as well as showcase the importance of the truce these desperate factions are trying to hold together. I also love how complicated things are going to get for everyone involved as the story evolves.

    Wildgoose delivers stellar art throughout the issue. The visuals are filled with gorgeous details and incredible environments that dazzle the eye.

    The Hunger and the Dusk: Book Two #1 has a difficult task by its name alone. This is the seventh issue of an ongoing fantasy series and it picks up immediately where the sixth left off. In name, however, it’s the first issue of something new, even with the “Book Two” of it all. G. Willow Wilson has to use this issue to not only continue an already great story, but also make use of this issue as a bit of a reset, launching into a second part of the saga that should feel at least a little different from the first.
