Rogue Angel: Teller of Tall Tales #2

My review of Rogue Angel: Teller of Tall Tales #1 can be read here: http://scifichick.com/2008/01/14/rogue-angel-teller-of-tall-tales-1/

Annja Creed is a part-time archeologist, part-time tv host of Chasing History’s Monsters, and full-time adventurer.

When Annja visits an old friend in the former mining town, of Virginia City, she is asked to assist with a dig involving Samuel Clemens’ work. But there are some who are against their exposing what could be an incredible discovery. And soon, Annja and her friend Rashmi find themselves fighting for their lives.

In this installment, we get Annja’s backstory with Joan of Arc’s sword from book 1, Destiny. For comic fans that don’t necessarily want to go out and read the book right away, this is a quick recap to catch up on what’s going on. With vivid portrayals of each character, this comic helps bring the story to life in a new and colorful way. Writer Barbara Randall Kesel has teamed up with artist Renae De Liz (and the rest of their team) to deliver a fantastic, adventure ride in a fun format.

Rogue Angel: Teller of Tall Tales #1

Rogue Angel

As a fan since the beginning of the series, I jumped at the chance to review an early copy of the new Rogue Angel comic.

Annja Creed is a part-time archeologist, part-time tv host of Chasing History’s Monsters, and full-time adventurer.

When Annja visits an old friend in the former mining town, of Virginia City, she is asked to assist with a dig involving Samuel Clemens’ work. But there are some who are against their exposing what could be an incredible discovery. And soon, Annja and her friend Rashmi find themselves fighting for their lives.

The creative team behind the new Rogue Angel comic has done a brilliant job of overcoming the challenge of bringing Annja to a new medium. From beginning to end, each page is filled with incredible artwork and fantastic scenes. The story of Annja latest adventure has a promising start, full of humor, history, and action.

For all the same reasons I love Indiana Jones (minus looking at Harrison Ford, of course), Annja is my second favorite archeologist and adventurer. She’s strong, independent, and smart. Usually accompanying each adventure is a fight against good and evil. And the bad guys don’t stand a chance against Annja, with or without her legendary sword of Joan of Arc.
