Finally, the comic starts to get interesting. And how does it get interesting? Allie gets as far away from Kane as possible. Instead, he spends almost all of the expository dialogue scenes–and action scenes (there’s really not much action in Solomon Kane, it’s usually just a bunch of people talking, maybe some trickery if the reader’s lucky)–with Kane’s sort of sidekick running around with the lady of the ominous castle.
We also find out it’s an ominous castle because its baron is an immortal devil worshipper. He’s a devout devil worshipper though, so when Kane thought his Muslim bride was evil and he was good… well, Kane can determine whether people worship the devil or not, only if they do it devoutly. Not a great superpower.
The art’s real weak this issue. The baroness (or whatever her title) doesn’t look the same from one panel to the next.
