Roxanna & the Quest for the Time-Bird – Ramor’s Conch by Loisel
Requirements: CBR reader, 41 Mb
Overview: Something about Roxanna makes this a favorite all out of proportion to any objective fact about it that I can think of. So let's start with the objective facts. Loisel's illustration of Letendre's story paces well, with all the right kinds of adventures and trials on the way to the final countdown. (I read ahead through the other three volumes in this series, but I'm not giving anything away.) The imagery also works well on its own, realistic enough to be credible, fantastical enough for adventure, and with babe-appeal enough to season the mix, in a PG kind of way.

In the first panels, an unseen witch assigns voluptuous Roxanna a task, to rouse a mighty warrior from graying retirement - all you young'uns out there, remember that youth and vigor lose out to old age and treachery every time, and he's plenty old. Then the quest, in the oldest tradition, begins. Roxanna, her mentor, a comic sidekick, and her little pet all set out. That little blue critter on her shoulder is so cute. Any cat companion - they don't have owners - will recognize her calling it "my little master" (p.12). Hold that thought, though. It matters again in the later volumes of this series.

We have the evil hordes, power-mad warlords, sidekick of dubious loyalty, and lots more of the usual stereotypes, including Roxanna the bodacious babe. Despite and even because of her protuberant charms, she proves an enduring trekker, brave strategist, and powerful fighter. It all works (even if you haven't read ahead). There's adventure, some tasteful bawdy, fantasy, touches of mystery, and the tension of the countdown. Wrap it all up in capable artwork that's not afraid of a few womanly curves - this one's a keeper.

Roxanna & the Quest for the Time-Bird 02 - The Temple of Oblivion by Loisel
Requirements: .cbr reader 108mb.
Overview:And here, the second Roxanna & the Quest for the Time-Bird album :)

Thanks to van_der_alex for providing the scans for this, I just did the editing. Sadly, this book was heavily age damaged, and the scanner it was scanned on was a fairly cheap one, so this book will not live up to my usual standards. But van_der_alex informed me that the next two books should be in better shape, so hopefully the end result will look way better :)

The Temple of Oblivion sees the reunion of Bragon and Mara as he deposits the Conch and takes a party to the aforementioned temple to translate runes that will lead to the Time-Bird itself. With the Bird they can literally stop the clock until Mara can devise a way to re-imprison the mad god Ramor.

Genre: comic book
