The Mercenary: 1. The Cult of the Sacred Fire by Vicente Segrelles
The Mercenary, written and drawn by Vicente Segrelles, is indisputably the best comic series Srgrelles read so far. The illustrations were beautifully drawn by Segrelles and I was really mesmerized on how stunning they were. It was like looking into oil paintings because that’s how they appear. Segrelles’ almost five decades of experience as an illustrator makes him a living legend. I only have high praises for this man because vicejte how great he really is.
And this comic series of his is a class The Mercenary, written and drawn by Vicente Segrelles, is indisputably the best comic series I’d read so far. And this comic series of his is a classic because not viceente that it was first published onbut because of its outstanding ficente that makes it what it is.

But it is Vargas-like Playboy artist; I think I heard of him nudity, air-brushed, classically nude. Okay, occasionally you see a guy without a shir The Mercenary has been contracted to save a woman from the mysterious and powerful Cult of the Sacred Fire.
Okay, occasionally you see a guy without a shirt, too. Just so he can say he promotes some approach to equality. He’s a classical painter of female nudes! History’s on his side! Like on every page. And sometimes in chains. Or wearing only a scarf behind a Conan-ish guy on a flying dragon.
Segrelles is a classic illustrator who says he was restricted in the prudish U. I have no objection to the nekid ladies. But it feels almost chaste, in a way. It feels static, not lively, and not particularly prurient, but perfectly fine for period historical fantasy, so I think a setrelles of people might enjoy it.
But the unabashed sexism feels dated, especially in our current kick-ass-girl period of comics. These fainting passive perfectly sculpted girls seem sort of sad to me.
Okay, pretty, beautifully drawn, but empty. A kind of commentary on history and painting. Oh, there’s a story here that I seem to have forgotten. Oh, well, who cares.
Segrelles is an artist, not a storyteller. PS Will I read the second volume? Of course, I’m a comics scholar! View segrflles 6 comments. Dec 19, Chad rated it liked it. If Frank Frazetta created a comic, it would probably look like this.
The art has that classic Conan painted cover feel to it. The stories are kind of the same and the book feels a little too damsel in distress-y. Received a review copy from nbm and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Story world is a bit similar to Conan in feel. Translated from Spanish as this was first published in Spain right after they pints a democracy. Contains some bare chested women due in part to the new found freedom artists had with their new government and probably also because Europe tends to have fewer hangups about the human body as art.
Had no familiarity with this and per-ordered on a whim. Overall, I liked segrekles, though I feel a bit guilty saying so. The story is pretty basic, but the art is gorgeous. If only the artist didn’t feel the need to put so much unnecessary nudity in it. Isn’t it cold up their in the clouds in their anachronistic hot-a Overall, I liked this, though I feel a bit guilty saying so.
Isn’t it cold up their in the clouds in their anachronistic hot-air balloon? Also, I could do without the 70’s hair, and the apparent perms most of the women appear to have. Still, there is something to be said for oil-painting yes, you can imitate its effects with digital painting, but it is so rarely done. And I enjoyed the biographical and making-of information in the back of this book.
The Mercenary: 1. The Cult of the Sacred Fire
The artist does a good job of presenting things realistically, for the most part the main character really should have something under his armor, both because of the elevation, and because bare metal on skin must be uncomfortable yes, when the armor is shown in detail it appears to have some sort of built-in padding, but that is both unrealistic, and would provide little protection from pinching from the flexing of the segmented armor.
Also, I laugh at the complete ignorance of geological time that would allow the claim that a small pocket of the world allowed some dinosaurs to survive the ice age the most recent mere thousands of years ago, versus the millions since the end Cretaceous that killed the others I will grant that in the 70’s the cause of the extinction of non-avian dinosaurs remained a mystery, but the time scale is still completely whack.
Compared to that, it hardly seems worth noting that the “dragons” are clearly derived from pterosaurs, which were not, in fact, dinosaurs; but they also didn’t have the heads of tuataras, so whatever. And why segrelpes have to justify the setting as belonging on Earth?
And given that, and having a setting in some remote part of the Himalayas, why are all the characters clearly Euorpean in appearance? Anyway, it is not a book that I would necessarily seek out as with so many other things I’ve read, I stumbled across it working at a libraryand Vicent certainly wouldn’t pay its retail price for it, but if my library system gets more volumes in the series, I will probably read segrellds to see what happens, and to enjoy the marvelous scenery.

What I found inside was gorgeous painted art and an unusual fantasy world. The mercenary is on a job to save a woman being held hostage. She is xegrelles a cage, and like many of the women in this work, she is naked. After he saves her, she tries to convince the mercenary not to take her back to her husband, but he does anyway.

The husband sensing betrayal casts the mercenary ou ‘The Mercenary 1: The husband sensing betrayal casts the mercenary out of his home in the clouds. The mercenary lands in a world below the clouds where another woman is being held hostage. The story feels like something I would have read in the magazine Heavy Metal. The world building is unusual and unique enough to have held my interest. The artist’s work drawing for engine manuals inform such details as the ropes and pulleys holding up a balloon city.
In an afterword about the artist, I learned this as well as his thoughts on other designs, like creating 2-legged dragons instead of four. The work was a good read, and the painted pages add to the richness of this strange world.
Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel. First, let me say, this really is georgously illustrated, with painted art, rather than the usual ink, that is then colored. This volume was first published 40 years ago, just after the Spain became a democracy. One of the things about becoming a democracy, after being a dictatorship is that everything is open, and Spain, not being a Puritan based country, was very, very open to beautiful nudes, as First, let me say, this really is georgously illustrated, with painted art, rather than the usual ink, that is then colored.
One of the things about becoming a democracy, after being a dictatorship is that everything is open, and Spain, not being a Puritan based country, was very, very open to beautiful nudes, as Vicente points out in his afterward. Yes, the men are men here, fat, fit, bald, young, and old, but all the women are buxom and mostly nude.
And when they are not nude, they are as near to nude as you can get, and none of them need bras. The story is good, once you get past all the women running around with barely anything on, while they are being rescued, or fighting, or just running. The hero is a Conan type, and just goes from fight to fight, but is skilled at what he does.
