CBR Review: Dragon Prince #3

I recently reviewed Dragon Prince #3 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "There’s something very familiar about that plot. It’s not a rip-off of anything specific, but the general ideas are very basic and general: a young boy finds out he’s got a secret heritage with two groups telling him conflicting things, each trying to win him over. But, Ron Marz makes this generic sort of plot work with subtle hints that Aaron is also aware of stories like that, and is wary of everything he’s told. He doesn’t believe what Madigan, leader of the Magi tells him, but he also doesn’t disbelieve. The character is remarkably self-aware, but that self-awareness is downplayed and mostly hinted at."
