Including: Suffrajitsu: Mrs. Pankhurst’s Amazons #1–3: London, 1914: The leaders of the radical women’s rights movement are fugitives from the law. Their last line of defense is the secret society of “Amazons”: women trained in the martial art of bartitsu and sworn to defend their leaders from arrest and assault. After a series of daring escapes and battles with the police, the stakes rise dramatically when the Amazons are forced into a deadly game of cat and mouse against an aristocratic, utopian cult.… The Dead God #1–3: In the year 536 AD, the land of Frisia is a hostile place of swords and sorcery. Across the dark, cold countryside, three valiant warriors quest for a treasure, the likes of which few can comprehend. These three—the mighty grappler, Eadhild; the skilled archer, Coll; and the charming young Valens—are searching for the head of Yvrnn, the sky-god. For, according to legend, the head of Yvrnn will grant its possessors great wisdom and fortune. The trio’s quest won’t be easy, as they must not only contend with Yvrnn’s followers who have set obstacles in their paths, but also the mystical creatures and bandits that haunt the roads of Frisia. Symposium #1–3: The Shield-Brethren is a secret martial order that has defended the West for centuries. Now, the origins of the order are revealed in this stunning three-issue tale. Our heroes, seeking to realize the idea offered to them by the philosopher Plato, leave Athens and travel to Delphi with hope of visiting the oracle. They have a dream to found a city of their own, and they desire insight from the oracle as to their question. But their skills—both as warriors and as thinking men—will be tested by adversaries they do not even know they have.

    Excellent batch of comics by old hands and newcomers. I especially liked the third story, Symposium, by Christian Cameron, for the untold tiny details thrown into every panel. My only grief is that while both Suffrajitsu and Symposium went to great lengths to maintain a high degree of historicity, the second story was full of fantasy - costume cliches, which really bothered me. Barbarian chick armour just shouldn't have made it into a work of otherwise excellent detail. Excellent batch of comics by old hands and newcomers.

    Middle story was good. But I struggled to get through the others. Meh.

    Suffrajitsu: The beginning was captivating but somehow I got lost with the ending. I didn't get it at all and it left me with the sensation that has more books after this one. The art was really great. I loved the colors and the drawings. But, as I said before, I have issues with the ending. That's why my rating for this is 2 stars. The dead god: This one was my favorite of this book. The narrator was totally likeable. He was funny, clever and truly knew how to cheer a story up.

The art was impressive and the colors were just perfect for the story. My rating: 3.5 stars. Symposium: Unfortunately, I didn't like this one. I didn't understand the story and just finished reading because I wanted to know the ending -which by the way, wasn't satisfying- so I'm kind of disappointed. My rating: 1 star. I won this book through GoodReads and I thank to the publisher for providing me this copy but this fact didn't influence the review.

    This fun comic is about British suffragettes who take on jujitsu to defend themselves from cops and male hecklers, and kick ass doing it. They're later contracted by the government as a special squad to fight an archvillain Austrian cultist. Not gonna lie, didn't read the other two stories.

    I only read the first story in the saga. Women's right to vote, crazy religious cults, fantastical beliefs and women kicking butt. I only read the first story in the saga. Women's right to vote, crazy religious cults, fantastical beliefs and women kicking butt.

    ***Won in a GoodReads First Reads giveaway*** Three comics, three issues each. Three different art styles and storytelling styles. Perhaps one should know a bit about Foreworld before reading this as the first and third stories were boring and uninteresting. The second story is phenomenal in its own right. If I had to pay for this, it would have less stars. I suggest finding a way to read The Dead God and skipping the others unless extremely interested in background stories.

Suffrajitsu: Mrs. Pankhurst’s Amazons #1–3: Three issues of setting things up. WWI is upon London. A group of women trained in high martial arts also campaigning for women's suffrage. Some kidnapping, some globetrotting. A villain is introduced as a Templar and then WWI happens and it looks like the women are going to enter the fray as part of some early stage OSS. The Dead God #1–3: A full quest in these three issues. Three warriors seek the head of a god. On their quest they need to complete three trials to gain keys to open the door. There is some humor and one of the three is trying to write alongside their adventure with embellishments to tell a good story. Symposium #1–3: Boring story set in Athens at the time of Plato. I could not finish the third issue. Each page had too many cells and the amount of dialog and text was astronomical. One would have though this was an actual philosophy book written by Plato. Perhaps because I have not yet read any other Foreworld Saga, this is not "stunning" as described.

    I wasn't sure if I would like this book. I'm not usually into the graphic novels and comic books, but I enjoyed the stories, especially Suffrajitsu and The Dead God. Once you realize that these are not the entire story and are just the beginning, it's easier to digest the cliffhanger endings and the story lines that don't seem to go anywhere. I found the art style interesting, but it wasn't that appealing to me. I did like the color palattes and the character designs. But I had a problem with th I wasn't sure if I would like this book.

    I became interested in this collection after reading about it on Salon. It was touted as a graphic novel exploring feminist themes. It does this to some extent, but on the whole I found the stories to be somewhat muddled and rather boring. Note: the three graphic novels collected here don't have anything to do with each other, despite being billed as a saga. I became interested in this collection after reading about it on Salon.

    I bought this thinking it was only the Suffrajitsu story. I was really excited about it, but that story fell a bit flat for me. I liked the historical links and some points it made, but I just didn't really enjoy the story. I ended up enjoying the other two stories more. The Dead God was the most enjoyable, but Symposium more interesting. I bought this thinking it was only the Suffrajitsu story. I was really excited about it, but that story fell a bit flat for me.
