Mystic #29 starts off with absolute hilarity as Giselle Villard undresses for a dozen or so Acolytes, not knowing that she doesn’t have to do this, that there is a dressing alcove nearby. After one of the Acolytes tells her of this, she is extremely embarrassed. I love the way Tony Bedard gets this story and I also love his scene shifts to the more sinister Magus who is setting up one of his diabolical plans.

Mystic reminds me of the magic that the TV show Xena: Warrior Princess brought to our TV screens. As Giselle learns about the magic of intimacy and how her body is a temple, it was amazing to see her go through that merging process. This visit to the Tantric Cathedral is teaching Giselle many things. Another great scene shift as Dumont sets out for his story at the Tantric Cathedral, which if he succeeds will be the ‘coup de grace’.

My head was spinning as soon as Giselle was accused of murder, I was much reliefed when Giselle learns that it is a Succubus that is committing these heinious acts. Can a Succubus seduce Giselle? Maybe it’s a good thing that she has a Squit on her side to keep this seduction from taking place!
