REVIEW: Nottingham #7

Book Title: Nottingham #7

Book Description: In the sixth issue of “Nottingham” we saw that King Richard had been captured and is being held for ransom. In an effort to appear to support his brother Prince John has agreed to pay the ransom. He’s also made arrangements to have the caravan responsible for delivering the ransom ambushed and robbed. If the ransom can’t be delivered King Richard can’t return to reclaim the throne. To be above reproach, Prince John made Sheriff Blackthorne is responsible for ensuring the ransom was delivered. Robin Hood caught wind of Prince John’s conniving plan and came to Sheriff Blackthorne’s aid when his caravan was attack. When we get to the seventh issue, we have an unlikely pairing. Robin Hood and Sheriff Blackthorne have become temporary allies while they are on this mission. The Merry Men and the sheriff’s guards are also in a truce. They are crossing the English Channel to make their way south. During the night one of the Merry Men is killed. This leads to finger pointing from both sides. Upon further investigation it is learned that a stowaway is the responsible party. During Robin’s absence we see Marian is making a play to take over the Merry Men. She’s essentially declared war on the nobles, having had several killed throughout the kingdom.

Summary

As we get further into this series it gets more intriguing. Maid Marian is quite a multifaceted character. She’s cunning, ruthless, powerful, and knows exactly what to say and do to get what she wants.

Sheriff Blackthorne continues to demonstrate his loyalty to the people of England and the crown over the nobles. He wants nothing to do with politics. To him doing what is best for the nation and its people is what matters most.

I like how Maid Marian is depicted on the cover. She looks stoic and powerful. The thing I truly appreciate is that while the covers for this story arc all connect to make a mural each individual cover does not feel like something is missing that will be found in the one next to it.

As a geek on a budget I highly encourage you to get into “Nottingham”. It is a terrific opportunity to get a different perspective on the characters you think you already know.

I grew up loving all things geek. I started reading and collecting comics when I was 8. My personal collection has roughly 8,000 books in it. When I’m not doing something geek-related I love spending time with my amazing wife and kids, gaming, and working on cross stitch projects.
