I have to give credit where credit is due and Top Cow is due some serious credit for this new six issue series from Broken Trinity titled Pandora’s Box. Top Cow has always had a fantasy element in what they do from Darkness to the new Angelus title and so forth but this series takes what they do to a new and interesting place.
This is a well thought out, plot driven fantasy tale that has just the right amount of violence, action and the supernatural. It’s also mystical fantasy storytelling that allows the modern world into it, keeping it not only more accessible but also with a greater edge.
Fantasy isn’t easy to pull off and epic fantasy like Pandora’s Box is even trickier. Rob Levin and Bryan Edward Hill are doing a great job of not rushing the story, even with a limited six issue run, They’re establishing the ground work so that the pay off will be mighty. I’m really interested to see how Pandora’s Box fits into the rest of the Broken Trinity series and how that ultimately ties in with everything else going on at Top Cow. While DC & Marvel seem to be grabbing all the headlines with Siege and Blackest Night, they should keep their eye on Top Cow. With more books like Pandora’s Box, Top Cow could become quite a threat to the big two.
