All you need to know about last issue: Merlin was stabbed.
Alba Sarum is ruled by lesbian princesses. The Princess is in another castle, Mario! But, you know, she isn't gonna fuck you or anything. She'll be grateful and shit but don't think this is a love story.
The Shining Knight identifies as male but nobody seems to respect that. Fucking 21st Century. I mean, fucking middle ages!
Why bring him back when Etrigan will just kill him again?
Oh the look on Xanadu's face! Yeah, she loves Etrigan and not Jason Blood.
While on the journey, The Shining Knight speaks with her Pegasus who has been extracting information from the Horsewoman's horse. The Pegasus issues a vague warning that the Horsewoman is not to be trusted. Jason Blood returns from Hell and is filled in on everything that has happened. And then Vandal Savage steers them into trouble.
Looks like Etrigan's trip back to Hell might be a short one. Poor Jason.
Demon Knights #9 Rating: +1 Ranking. The story is jolly and cute and funny and very well drawn. It looks beautiful and is thoroughly enjoyable.
