    I think this is my favorite Dragons comic yet. It had a good storyline and great art. It just really fit and even seemed like it could be an episode for the TV series. These comics are fun and I am really looking forward to the Dragons: Defenders of Berk coming up.

    I just finished reading the sixth Riders of Berk graphic novel, Underworld. It’s an interesting one. The very first Riders of Berk comics follow very closely to what we viewers have seen in other parts of the DreamWorks canon. “Dragon Down” feels like just another Riders of Berk episode, complete with Hiccup running into Alvin the Treacherous and the Outcasts. “Dangers of the Deep” and “The Legend of Ragnarok” might have introduced new dragon species, yet that is nothing all too shocking in the I just finished reading the sixth Riders of Berk graphic novel, Underworld. It’s an interesting one. The very first Riders of Berk comics follow very closely to what we viewers have seen in other parts of the DreamWorks canon. “Dragon Down” feels like just another Riders of Berk episode, complete with Hiccup running into Alvin the Treacherous and the Outcasts. “Dangers of the Deep” and “The Legend of Ragnarok” might have introduced new dragon species, yet that is nothing all too shocking in the world of dragons, dragons, dragons, dragons, and more dragons. These stories by and large feel very homogeneous with the material in the television series and movie trilogy. “Underworld,” though, feels somewhat divergent from what we have before seen. At least, Simon Furman is becoming more comfortable making the story his own and expanding the HTTYD world in ways we have never before seen it. The divergence isn’t bad, but it takes a little getting used to. I believe it is the fact that we see Vikings tunneling beneath Berk… led by a captain who has connections to Stoick before Stoick was chief… that made this story feel initially a little peculiar to me. During a first reading of the comic, I enjoyed the story but felt it a little diffident about some of the material; by a second reading, though, I’m wholly content with the content. This comic might always feel a little “separate” from the others, but I think it’s good stuff, and it’s given me a whole lot to think about. And really, the more I think about it, the less I’m willing to say it’s actually “divergent.” You can read the story without any of those vibes, and frankly, it’s a good story. I don’t think “Underworld” contradicts or juxtaposes anything, now that I’ve thought about it. Captain Fiske’s story is essentially Alvin the Treacherous’… he must have been a Hooligan from Berk before he became so obsessed with hunting down a Submaripper. He was a great sea captain of Berk for whom Stoick worked before Stoick became chief. It makes sense that Stoick, the son of a Berk’s chief, would have been the second in command, learning leadership and command at sea. Then Fiske left, went through poor fortunes, got a motley crew of non-Hooligans together, and began to enact his revenge. Now that I have thought this through, all the information does fit in together with what we know about other parts of the HTTYD world. It’s just not what I expected of Stoick’s past and Fiske, and maybe that made me pause at first. I’m not a huge fan of Captain Fiske, his personality, and his motivations as villain. He doesn’t seem to contribute anything uniquely to the growing plethora of HTTYD villains. That said, while I prefer villains like Hroar, Norbert, and Excellinor, I’m not at all unhappy about “Underworld.” I found lots of enjoyable things about the story and am quite pleased to add it to my collection of HTTYD merchandise. Don’t let my initial qualms factor into your reading of it; I want to encourage people to accept the story and enjoy ever panel. Because every panel is very interesting and tells an engaging story. I think this is the most intense and exciting Riders of Berk comic yet! Some of my favorite things about this comic installment include: - The characters in winter gear. All the designs are really awesome and epic. I think I need to draw Hiccup like that because he looks spectacular with that hood. - The artists finally got the eye colors right between Hiccup and Astrid! The way in which this story was told was very gripping. It had constant action and intrigue from the first panel to the very last. The writer and artists successfully drew three things going on simultaneously while keeping a clear storyline: Hiccup planning an escape, Astrid going off on a separate journey for help, and Captain Fiske telling a flashback story. That’s pretty complicated stuff, and it came together well. - Astrid is awesome. She questions Hiccup from the start for going into something stupid. Then she goes off and does some pretty exciting actions on her own, comes up with the idea to bring the Submaripper to Fiske, and save the day. I’m really happy with my Astrid time I got in “Underworld.” - We see the youths question Hiccup multiple times for his crazy ideas. The comics demonstrate so well how Hiccup isn’t always a hero… he gets people into trouble, too! When Hiccup suggests they check out the cave, everyone tells him what might go wrong. Next thing they know, they’re all tied up by their enemies and in big danger. The youths know that following Hiccup often leads to trouble. - The short “Smeltdown” is awesome. All the characters do something wonderful. I love Hiccup getting nerdy and coming up with an invention, precursing how much activity we know he does during the “five year gap”. I can’t get over the fact that Astrid and Snotlout get together, agree on something, and make a friendly bet on when Hiccup’s invention would break. I headcanon they do it a lot. Best thing ever. And then Hiccup’s invention does break… and Stoick remarks, “Next time, Gobber, do not - I repeat, do not - listen when my son says he has an idea.” So it’s fun! I’m sad that now I have to wait until 2016 for more HTTYD comics. It looks like they’re coming out with a collector’s edition of the Riders of Book comics 1 and 2, and since that is said to have some behind-the-scenes information, I’ll contemplate purchasing it. If so, it comes out in November, so I’ll have something upon which to feast my eyes before “The Endless Night” and “The Serpent’s Heir” come out!

    This comic had an interesting tale of revenge and how it can ultimately destroy you, as it did to Fiske. It is a strong message and good lesson for kids of what revenge can do to you. Also, the idea to destroy Berk from underneath to make it fall in on itself was ingenious. Also enjoyed the artwork of the extra story at the end.

    So, this Captain Fiske really should have been Alvin the Treacherous because he's missing a leg, a hand, and wears an eye patch. Those are all physical limitations and characteristics of Alvin.

    I did not like this one as much as the previous volumes (not including the short story at the end, which was awesome!). I thought the quality of the art was not as good--it looked more computerized, and did not match the original style of the characters. The story was ok. I will read other entries in this series, but I hope the quality improves.
