Plot


Aboard a ship bound for France laden with King Richard’s ransom, the Sheriff of Nottingham finds himself in a race against time to root out a hidden killer. Maid Marian puts the first phase of her bloody plan into action.


My Opinion


Wow, wow, wow, wow and wow. I didn’t think Nottingham could get any better but shoot me down with arrows, it has! Issue 7 turns the dials up to 10 with 2 huge storylines that will have devastating effects on the entire series as we know it!


The story developments in this issue ensure that I am most certainly still hooked into this series. With the utmost care and attention to detail, the creative team hasn't missed a beat here. Not only is the knife edged alliance between Hood and the sheriff of Nottingham maintained, a grenade in the form or a murder in thrown into the mix…A merry man is slaughtered! But who is responsible? Meanwhile back in Nottingham, a very scheming Maid Marian begins to enact her plan and damn…it's a bloody mess. There's blood EVERYWHERE and bodies to boot!


Artistically you can really tell that Shane Connery Volk is really starting to flex his skill. Each panel is drawn and created with such enchanting penmanship. It really is a joy to behold. This unique style is complemented by the incredible colourings of Luca Romano. Their partnership in this is utterly stunning and I look forward to every comic of theirs.


David Hazan adds a series of HUGE curveballs into the story that have kicked the series up several gears. Imagine a dark, gritty robin hood movie had a baby with the assassin's creed games and you have Nottingham issue 7! I truly wonder how he does this, every issue gets better and better and I'm already salivating over the thought of issue 8!


If you haven’t jumped on the comic journey of Nottingham yet then I urge you to do so. I have reviewed volume 1 on my website and this is now the second issue of volume 2. I promise you will not be disappointed, it is quite simply in a class of its own!
