Generally pretty good. You definitely need an editor to go over the text. Proofread it and you'll see where all of the mistakes are, such as "overthrown" instead of overthrowned, "Ebolt's castle" instead of Ebolts castle, and "rebellion" vs. rebillion, all in the first page. That's just the copyediting. There is also a lot of needless text, such as what you've written for the first panel of page one. Try to find the core information required to get the message across, reword text if need be to cut it down, and don't be afraid to break it down into multiple captions per panel. Visually the story is pretty clear, but the text drags the story along.

Wow this is really nice, it reminds me of Prince Valiant, which I used to read and collect religiously when I was younger.

I think that some of the inking is letting you down. Alot of the rough hatching isn't blending into the background that well, the faces are probably over rendered -creating a rough, aged look that I don't think you were going for and many of the foreground objects have the same line weight as the background, so your getting creating as much depth as you could have.
Not alot of changes really, much of it is actually leaving out detail.
Positive stuff: I do like the classic feel of the artwork and the amount of detail put into the scenery (creating a good story setting) and you have solid, easy to follow storytelling.

Thanks for your nice words and good critiques.
About the text. I wrote it my self and since my first language isnīt english I will definetly have someone to do a good translation before printing it, if I find a publisher for it.
I will also look over the text so itīs not to much.
About inking: I know what you talking about, the thing is that I really donīt like drawings that have thick inklines cause it doesnīt feel real for me. Itīs a matter of taste but this is how I want it to look.
However I always listening to good critics so I will definetly bare your thoughts in mind.
Once again thanks
All the best
