Notable Notes: Sephie finally bucks her Uncle’s tyranny!

She’s Got The Guts To Do The Right Thing!

Have you ever been pushed too far by someone? Maybe it was a close relative, or a boss or even a complete stranger. Sometimes it can be difficult to stand up to bullies – especially if they are older or in a position of power over you – but the star of this comic proves that it can and should be done! Let’s all hope that her future actions go just as well.


Issue #2 of Meridian saw Sephie begin to question her uncle’s motives, and this issue carries that theme even further. It begins with Sephie paying homage to her father’s memories while her evil uncle, Ilahn, tries to pry Sigil secrets from the Muse. When he can’t get them he takes out his anger on a valuable trading partner while in Sephie’s presence – further strengthening her suspicions. As the story shows Sephie’s friends trying to escape Cadadorian soldiers on Meridian, we see her question her uncle about his relationship to her mother. All doesn’t end well as Sephie finally rejects his lies and flees back to her home land.

My 2 Cents:

  • Once again the art was my favorite part of this book. Beautiful drawings, vibrant colors, fantastic fonts – very nicely done!
  • While the story wasn’t bad, it also wasn’t as good as the previous couple of issues. This one seems to advance the story line by having Sephie come to realize the obvious truth about Ilahn – something we the readers figured out long ago… yawn.
  • Given the less-that-stellar story it was still loads of fun to see the cool scenery and get some more tasty morsels from the Muse. But these things only raise the bar – and the questions – for this book!

How I Rate This Issue:

  • Story: 3 stars
  • Art: 5 stars
  • Fun Factor: 4 stars
