Library Journal Review

Royal families with superpowers: Why hasn't this concept been explored until now? Cocreators Williams and Coleby open this Pandora's box during World War II, when an idealistic British prince decides to aid his nation against the Axis forces, violating a noninvolvement pact among royals around the globe and inadvertently escalating the conflict to horrific, epic levels. Fortunately, writer Williams and artist Coleby, both Marvel and 2000 A.D. vets, have the courage and the smarts to probe the darkest recesses inherent in this premise; the grit and detail on display, especially in the clever plotting and the stunning battle sequences, demonstrate that the creative team have done their homework. Verdict Historians may object, and while it's no League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, this new series earns its place beside such informed, provocative alternate histories as C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America and World War Z. Violence, profanity, gore, and some sexual content; suitable for older teens and up. Recommended to all readers of graphic novels and historical fiction and especially to those who enjoy subversions of the standard superhero mythos.-J.
