Extremely fun but flawed fun!

4/5

This is more of review for the whole series. Hardcover would be good for that, but I can't wait that long now can I ;)

Pathfinder- Hollow Mountain is the best Pathfinder comic series written and drawed so far. While Pathfinder Special #1 is my all time favorite PF comic, some of the issues here came pretty close topping that. The party here is of ideal size. Dropping Harsk (Old Deadeye bless him) off the team was a right choice, team seems much more tight now. Every character has their own place and own, clear personality. Kyra even managed to make a pretty fun joke! And yes, comedy works well here especially with those gilligan cuts and page turner reveals. Good collaberation with artist and writer!

New "heroes", aka Seltyiel and the Masters of Evil were a fun bunch and added some fun conflict when the parties merged. Seltyiel continues to be the annoying piss-bucket he is, though he has some pretty good lines here and there (I could have had a Incubus!). Interestingly Oloch and Meligaster managed to be the ones with most persona. I reaally liked Meligaster's gargantuan ego while he actually does very little.

However, the problem of this series was in the art. And it's the continued problem of this whole comic book side. There has been in my opinion only one GREAT artist- Kevin Stokes. Sean Izaaksev is the second best so far. HE is really good with faces, and all the characters have their own personal features and smiles, grins and winks. But where the problem truly lies is the action. Stokes was great at visualizing movement of jumping thieves and whirling blades. Izaaksev really lacks in this area. Worst offends are the part where they beat the BBEG, and it's in the small corner of page barely seen. Compare that to the epic battle in Dark Waters Rising and it feels just...lazy. Also Damiel shows his cool monster form- and does absolutely nothing with it. We do not see it after he changes to it. This is although a writer's fault as well.

Hollow Mountain was great. I really enjoyed reading it and having new characters kept it fresh and working. What keeps it from being perfect is the problem with artist. I imagine the artist is going to change again as it has so far, but maybe returning back wouldn't be a bad idea? Or is Tess Fowler doing anything right now?
