Read “For Evermore“, an alternate world expansion of the original poem, specifically tied into the RAVEN NEVERMORE series.
Richard Caldwell via BleedingCool.com: “[Nuno Teixeira is] piloting his ship far from any of the over utilized stereotypes of either the steampunk or Gothic genres, Raven Nevermore is an intelligent representation of a set and setting that is part learned Victorian couture and part Michael Moorcock science fantasy epic and part Dungeons and Dragons.”
The Stand On Guard blog: “We are introduced to Corvan Moore’s friends, families and enemies, and a mystery in his background, but also shown the setting in pieces, whether in the form of the Victorian era fashions, high-tech weaponry mixed with fantasy races, etc. To me, seeing Cog City revealed was as interesting as the story itself.”
“gesserit” on KAT: “What I took to be predictability of the plot in the first issue doesn’t just go away, but retroactively dissolves into being just one facet of something far deeper and grander. I’m definitely hooked now!”
