Review:  ★★★☆☆

Titan Comics drops its first entry in the Reflections series, yet another Assassin’s Creed tale. Our story begins with Juhani Otso Berg who happens to be a master Templar who is sensing treachery from within the Order. Berg decides it’s best to look to the past for answers. Berg steps back into 1519 during a time of Ezio Auditore who is visiting an old friend. The old friend is referred to as maestro and has history within the arts. Ezio and his friend begin a back story to explain how they tie together. It gives us a little detail in history about a smile that has been a curiosity for the last five hundred years. The story is really good, but it helps if  you know more about Assassin’s Creed as a whole. The strange thing for me is that it felt like a Disney store with the artwork and design. This is a tale about a Brotherhood that kills people for a living and a greater cause. It’s not awful and I enjoyed the historical reflections, but the art just didn’t feel like the right fit for this type of story.
