Alaric Moebius and Basil is back in this the third volume of adventures. They are still bound to find artifacts to the mysterious "Collector" but are looking for a way to get out of their servitude. Now it seems like they finally will get their wish as they are learning the origin of "the Collector", through 13 old stone discs that tell the history of the Ancients, a mythological race of godlike creatures that once was worshiped on earth.

It was quite nice to once again to be reacquainted with Alaric Moebius and Basil. But, even though I enjoy reading these kinds of adventures graphic novel do I prefer a more serious note. The banter between Moebius and Basil and the humorous tone with women they meet etc. just doesn't always appeal to me. It can be too much. I found I grew a bit impatient with the story.

Still, it nice to read something action-filled once in a while. And, I did enjoy learning more about the Collector. And, I loved that we get to met Basil's mother. Even though I didn't always like the humor did I enjoy the humorous part with her. I will say that the last 1/3 of the book was my favorite part with Moebius and Basil realizing that they may have done a big mistake. And, despite the ending have I a feeling that they are not really off the hook yet!

The art is ok, I can't say I love it. It's nothing that really takes my breath away when I read it. But, I don't dislike it, it suits this kind of story.

I want to thank the publisher that provided me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review. ( )
