The Max Level Hero Strikes Back

Struck by an enemy’s arrow, the powerless Prince Davey O’Rowane falls into a coma. His soul travels to a place where the greatest of the great gather—the honorable Hall of Heroes. There a thousand years pass as Davey undergoes excruciating training under their watchful eyes to become a hero too strong for his own good. Now back to his timeline and his kingdom, he’s wide awake and the enemies hiding in the king’s court better be prepared. The prince they had dismissed is now their biggest threat!

one word: bombast ...and...another word: uninspired ...and two more words: slightly funny ...then...maybe just a handful more: lesser than Tales of Demons and Gods ...and finally, a bit of a rant: The artwork is generic and glossy. The main character, Davey, has a ridiculously generic face. Are artists incapable of drawing characters that feel distinct and stand apart from the crowd? I personally find the blurry backgrouds to be annoying. It makes it feel like there's too much going on, but also not enough going on. None of the images can be considered "beautiful." It's colored, but simplistic. There's also some 3D images thrown in and some copy-and-pasting in lieu of redrawing, which are both things I dislike. I get the strong impression that many of the images, in the backgrounds especially, weren't actually drawn. Panels don't always flow well together--feel more like individual images rather than sequences. In the beginning, the exposition feels off. Maybe there's too much thought narration? It tells us how Davey's awesome rather than showing us how fe's awesome. Also, fe's not all that awesome. At least as a character. Fe's powerful, but isn't actually very charismatic or engaging. Fe's condescending and aimless, leisurely seeking power and revenge against those that wrong fem. The villains are likewise one-dimensional in their villainhood--they are cruel and unthinking and lack any sense of humility or empathy. The fights have flashy lines, but are honestly pretty boring. And the way the story doesn't comment on the problematic nature of the entire political structure in general is pretty shallow. Fe intends to root out the corrupt nobles and presumably fill their roles with non-corrupt nobles, but that doesn't prevent the system from inevitably falling into corruption once again (generations down the line). They live in a society where it's acceptable for people to be executed for blaspheming against royalty. That's an exceedingly messed up society. And while it's possible to interpret Davey's goals as aiming to benefit the country as a whole (if you want to be generous), it's actually easiest to just interpret fem as seeking to benefit femself personally. Fe wants power not out of a sense of duty to the citizenry, but because power will help fem accomplish feir own personal goals (of vengeance and whatnot). Which is a definite misuse of feir royal position and, as such, is arguably just as corrupt as those fe is trying to upend. Does the story intend to get into any of this? No, 'cause raising questions on the responsible limits of power would kinda damper the whole power fantasy thing. [Reviewed at chapter 28]
