    Three is the magic number

    While Volume 2 was typically well done, you may have been thinking that the over-the-top nature of it would leave an unattractive yearning for the third volume of The Astounding Wolf-Man. Without further ado, I put your fears to rest, for Volume 3 not only outdoes the first two volumes, but proves to be the greatest installment of the series to date.

    First off, this volume picks up where the last one left off, with Gary Hampton A.K.A. Wolf-Man being arrested and hauled to Stronghold Penitentiary. Now, he must form an unholy alliance with some of the villains he put away while fighting to reconcile with his daughter who thinks that he has killed her mother.

    Robert Kirkman was written this volume far better than the previous books, and characters have more to say because of it. Jason Howard has continued to amaze me with his artwork, which has changed over the last three years. You can really see how Howard and his artwork have grown up, as well as Kirkman and his fantastic writing. Some of the characters have matured as well, their personalities becoming more rounded out and interesting.

    The story is slightly more believable than Volume 2 because it sticks to what was introduced earlier in the series and doesn't go over-the-top, but still remains grounded in comic unrealism. Also, there is a more personal connection in the story with Gary's struggle to make peace with his daughter, so it gives you more than just a carrot-on-a-stick urge to keep reading. The plot twists along the way are decent, and I'm not asking for any more ridiculous content, but the story could have been a little more surprising at parts. The more violent sequences of this trade paperback are generously splashed with gore, but thankfully not as much as Volume 2. You see, Kirkman and Howard have repaired practically every flaw that the series has sustained as of late.

    This (very delayed) volume of Wolf-Man's journey is unforgettably awesome, and it would be a crime for any comic book lover to not buy this book. I eagerly wait the final installment of The Astounding Wolf-Man.
