Comment: Tim Thruman’s side story are nicely related with the main one. Though everything is not exactly what you think they’d be, Thruma’s story is not an unique. But Mr. Corben’s artwork is still in good shape. There is tence action and good faces. Slavegirl in harbour city may be voluptuous, but the nudity you cannot see until in the very last part. Mountain scenes are stunning, and are we watching eye to eye to Rowlf‘s ancient mother in the very end of the story?
