When Xena and Gabrielle are approached by a stranger. They are taken to a village where all the children have extraordinary strength. But what other mysteries are to be found in a village, which is seemingly living in fear of the Goddess Discord.
The art from Olympia Sweetman shows a good deal of promise insofar as I get the impression that she is only warming up for this issue, which is somewhat light on action and heavy on character beats and dialogue.
Her drawing of some of the settings and the village is very true to the sort of locations seen in the TV series and the likenesses of Xena and Gabrielle are pretty in keeping with how they appeared in the television series.
This is a promising start to what looks like it could well be another interesting story arc. The writer obviously has a good grip on the relationship between Xena and Gabrielle, which was a huge selling point of the television show. And yes. Gabrielle is just as annoyingly chatty as she is in the TV show.
I loved the premise of the Goddess Discord holding the village hostage by threatening to take the children. And the closing page offers up an excellent cliffhanger.
