My Review:

"All a man reaps is that which he sows" ~ Crimson Corsair

Ozymandias is truly such a kick ass character beginning til the very end and clever too.Somebody that could match the comedian and even more it's crazy!I love his story especially his rags to riches journey and be better.

Crimson Corsair, I got this pirates of the caribbean feel all over again.I like the story quite interesting some are hella scary and few that bore me so I took my time to totally get into as it is in some sorta grim effect.It drags mann...there's also blank pages I'm not sure if there's something suppose to be in there but oh well I carry on everything that happened to Gordon Mcclachlan feels,looks and sounds like a continuous loop of gruesome nightmare.N'Tunga's she's an admirable character.And then....what the heck did just happened?

There's also a brief story of another character in which I wouldn't name coz I'd like it to be some sorta bonus story I wasn't expecting..I felt kinda bad for him being stuck in that situation although I kinda knew it and he saw it coming then I recalled Edna Mode (The Incredibles movie) once said "NO CAPES!"

Overall,I like how every character got his shot of glory in their story I'll give Ozymandias 4.5 stars,Crimson Corsair 3.5 stars and the bonus story 3 stars out of 5 stars.Average score of 3.7 stars not bad at all ^^,
