CBR Review: Gravel #21

I recently reviewed Gravel #21 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "With no word on the future of Gravel, issue 21 looks to be the last. Concluding the third seven-issue story arc of the series, and the large three-part story arc that was built from each smaller arc, William Gravel finds his position as King of Magicians in England not so secure after a crazed magician has killed his allies, destroyed his places of power, and left him seemingly defenseless. As always, people underestimate Gravel and they pay for the mistake with their lives. It’s a pretty simple pattern, but it’s driven the series so far, and allowed Gravel to be engaging as he consistently rises to the challenge, most often through surprise and skill. Even with everything taken away from him, he’s still as good as he was in the first issue when he began his quest to take down the Minor Seven."
