The Old Guard #3 Review

Mostly Dead

It was only a flashbang grenade, apparently. Still, half his head was gone yet Booker survived anyway. This is an action-adventure story of the best kind. Shoot-em-ups and explosions and the burdens of history and the loss of family all rolled into one.

From the publisher:

“PART THREE Booker gets a grenade in the lap. Andy does what she does best. Nile tries to make sense of it all. Also: A lot of shooting, some explosions, and a heartfelt declaration of love.”

With Copley’s betrayal and the kidnapping of two of the crew, we get a fast moving thrill ride with enough of a twist to make it interesting. Why bother having them taken? Obviously, the acquisition cost is great, so the reward must be something big.

The words and images are well balanced. Light, dark, action, flashback, introspections are all rendered with clear distinction and great detail. This is a clever and meticulous epic tale that looks like it will only get better.

7.5
