The Ancients, Quinlan’s friendship with Tacitus.
Story is still a bit basic for some.
Naked strigoi. Yikes!

Since escaping the prison of the arena, Quinlan has spent his time fighting under the command of Tacitus in The Strain: Mister Quinlan #3. A man who Quinlan admires for his ability, skill, and smarts as a warrior, but also as a free man. He has not only become his must trusted Centurion, but learned about who he truly is.
The Ancients are one of the highlights of the show. The conversations they have with Quinlan are always interesting, especially since they allude to past confrontations. We get a chance to see their first interactions, as Quinlan discovers a bit more about who he and why he is so important. I hope they are featured more as the series continues; there are seemingly plenty of stories to tell.
It’s always a risk when a property tries to expand on the popularity of a character. Fans always want more, but that can often do more damage to a beloved fan favorite then we care to admit. With the Mister Quinlan series, Del Toro and Chuck Hogan have made one of the franchises best characters even more intriguing.
If you are a hardcore fan of The Strain comic book series or of the TV show The Strain: Mister Quinlan #3 is a must read. Everything is meticulously put together; you can feel The Master’s voice in your head as you’re reading it. The art, the dialogue, and even the subtle dialogue font changes bring it all to life.
