In a previous review, we discussed the origins of The Guild web television series and the Myspace Dark Horse Presents #27, which featured a short comic book adaptation.  Felicia Day, writer and creator of The Guild, concluded her 3-issue Dark Horse story this past May.

Title: The Guild #3
Writer: Felicia Day
Art: Jim Rugg
Color: Dan Jackson
Letter: Nate Piekos (from Blambot)
Cover: Juan Ferreyra (Cover A); Jim Rugg & Dan Jackson (Cover B)

Felicia Day (Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog) concludes her hilarious origin story of the Knights of Good, the stars of her multiple award-winning web series!

Cyd Sherman has finally assembled her in-game team: Vork, Bladezz, Zaboo, Clara, Tinkerballa, and her own character, Codex, but is the guild ready for its first quest?  With her boyfriend pushing her away for a bandmate and her therapist only confusing matters, Cyd decides it’s time to find out, and pushes for the guild to join a major tournament.  Leading directly into the web series, this prequel has all the touching humor and insight of Day’s cult sensation, and is a great read for Guild fans new and old!  See the show at watchtheguild.com!

Side Notes: The independent art style of The Guild #3 exhibited an innocent look which I found charming.  The covers were not as exciting as the ones prior to the third issue.  The illustration for Cover A looked a bit off, and Cover B felt inappropriate as a cover image.

I felt a connection to Felicia Day’s interactive storytelling technique.  It was something new and exciting, without retelling the events of Myspace Dark Horse Presents #27.  The Guild comic book series doesn’t isolate newcomers, so it serves as a great introduction into the web show.

Watch the Guild!

PS: The Guild will have a season 4! Huzzah!

  2. Cover A looks better IMO but cover B doesn’t seem inappropriate. I’ve heard things off and on about The Guild but I thought you had to be knowledgeable of the web series to read the book. Glad to see it’s accessable to new readers out there!
