Dupree and Martinez have the start to a fun story, and I think future issues will be very enjoyable. However, first issues can be hard. The writing duo strike a decent balance between origin story and present time, but there’s just not enough present-day story to really get a feel for where the story will go. Warbound, the eponymous character, is set up as an anti-hero of sorts, driven by rage and revenge for the murder of his tribe by an unknown sorcerer. Origin stories can be tough. I think ultimately, I would have preferred the origin to be more spread out over 2-3 issues and have more plot revealed about the present. However, I have hope that issue 2 will dive right in to that. All that said, the art is fantastic and this is a series with a lot of potential. Warbound’s character design is well done, even if familiar, and it’s nice seeing it evolve through the ages of his revenge.
