Review: Quest Corporeal
Quest Corporeal is a webcomic about a small group of people, three to be precise, namedRose Knight; a young botanist turned author of strange magical ruins, Hazzad Hazma; a “procurement agent” with quite a high standard fashion sense, andArtus Thaumas; a cleric adventurer as well as Rose’s boyfriend. Together the go on assignments to procure ingredients and artifacts and are thusly paid a sum depending on how well they do.
This world is very interesting having necromancy as a recurring theme throughout the story as not something that is illegal necessarily but is seen as an ill practice by most. In most worlds of magic and fantasy the art of raising the dead is usually so abhorrent that most people will right out attack the user of such abilities, whether it is verbal or physical really depends on the situation, though. Where this plot thread is headed I can only guess from what I’ve read so far, and I genuinely find myself wanting to watch and read as this comic develops and changes as time goes by.
The art in the page about is somewhat different from the rest of it, but I don’t really mind. It has that pencil and paper art style I love so much and I could go on for hours about it, but I digress. The style uses black and whites to paint the world around the characters with a few splash pages for each chapter filled with awesome color. It’s a wonderful contrast that gives you a hint of the characters fashion as well as how they look while walking about the town or on the roads through forests.
Overall, Quest Corporeal has captured my attention and I intend to give it as much as I can for the foreseeable future. Give it a read, let me know your thoughts on how you would view necromancy if you lived in a fantasy world, and let me know what you like about the comic.
Per the usual, if you’d like to support this fine comic, consider heading to the artists patreon page and if you like my reviews head over to mine. I’m sure they would appreciate it and you know you will always have my eternal gratitude regardless.
And, as always, I hope you enjoy as much as I do.
