I think Paul Cornell is a pretty good writer and I like the characters featured in this series, the Demon, the Shining Knight, Madame Zanadu, Vandal Savage, Mordru and the rest. But while the story collects 6 or 7 issues of the series, we don't get a complete story. Like most current comic books the story is lean with minimal dialog per page. In earlier decades, this story would have been told with denser text in an issue or two. Here it just feels padded out. The artwork is mediocre. Perhaps if the art had been better I'd feel more strongly about it one way or the other, but as it is the book makes me feel rather indifferent. Mostly I came away bugged with the gender switch of Sir Justin, the Shining Knight.
