The first two issues of Alter Ego devoted to Sword-and-Sorcery in the comics have been great, and I have little to no reservations about this third installment. However, I’m still waiting for the issue that covers Roy Thomas’ Arak work for DC and the unseen art by Todd McFarlane for that series. Also, where is the Groo coverage?!? Still, that Rafael Kayanan cover depicting Bran Mak Morn is outstanding.
