     A Review of Dragon Age, Volume 1
Kings, dragons, villains, and some mysterious sorcerres are what are scattered in Dragon Age, Volume 1. King Alistar is trying to recover his long-lost father , King Maric, has been imprisoned in , Velabanchel Prison, a seeming horrible place to be. He uncovers to his surprise that has been taken instead by Yavaneth a dragon witch. King Maric has agreed to be spirited away though much to the confusion of King Alistar. Through a last ditch effort enlists the help of Varric and Isabella. Varric a archer and guide. Isabella is on the other hand a skilled assassin it is assumed. 

Something worth mentioning for Dragon Age, Volume 1 is the abundance of humor and ridiculousness whenever Varric is involved. Some of his comments are just hugely entertaining. Even so, its underlined by a certain serious tone from King Alistar who sees his mission as an important crusade. Not many joking around from him.

Dragon Age, Volume 1 so far sets up an interesting Fantasy world which we are still in the dark about thus far. The artwork has presence and favors the writing in good balance. Dragon Age, Volume 1 is for the type of people that like Dark Fantasy or elaborate quests in their graphic novels.
Overall: Good read
