Awesome story with awesome art. Could have done without the sex, even though it was an important part of the main character's personal arc, just didn't care for it. I really wanted more great stories in this universe and I got it!

An improvement in form for Moeller. The story and characters are more compelling this time around, with simple but satisfying character arcs. Iron Empires is just some good old-fashioned science fiction. It's good enough that I find myself wanting to push it into the hands of friends.

The second story set in the Iron Empires universe. I found this story to be better written than the first one, not that the first one was bad, it's just that the creator of the comic shows his improvement as a writer. I actually preferred the artwork from the first one, but that was mainly because it featured more pictures of vehicles and starships and I really like the artists talents in those areas.

It's so rare to get solid science-fiction in comics that this is a rare treat, especially given the great art. Despite that, it runs a little slow through much of the book, with the occasional bit of emotion that draws you end. The last couple of issues are great though, and leave me wanting to read more.

Overall, an improvement from the previous volume too.

I didn't like this one as much as Volume 1. In general, it doesn't strike me as a series that I'll follow, largely because there doesn't seem to be any continuity between volumes except that they're all set in the same universe. Again, this one had excellent art, and some intriguing ideas, but I found the main character rather obnoxious and unsympathetic.

An even better story than Faith Conquers. The storytelling in this volume is far smoother, concentrating on just a few characters, and nevertheless conveying the epic sense of the greater conflict. I certainly want to read more stories from the Iron Empires, and the roleplaying game has now made it to my To-Buy list.

Like Faith Conquers, this graphic novel is a favorite of mine. Great art combined with a solid story just breaths further life into a setting that apparently started from the artist's sketchbook.
I can't wait for the next installation for the Iron Empires.
