Writer: Christopher Cantwell

Letterer: Clem Robins
Publisher: Berger Books


When I reviewed the first issue of She Could Fly, I went on and on about how amazing and original it was. Then in my review of the second issue, I rambled on about how the story was getting more amazing and original. Well, I’m sure to no one’s surprise, I’m gonna write about how this third issue has made this story yet even more amazing and original.

Christopher Cantwell’s storytelling in this series is beautiful because he intertwines so many pieces together seamlessly. Each person we were introduced to in the first issue were so different that I was amazed at how Cantwell started to connect them in the second issue. We are now seeing those connections in full force in this issue and it is just as exciting as the unknown was in the first issue.

The characters in this series are part of what makes me love it much. Luna is of course a fascinating character and I adore her more every page that I read. This third issue reveals to us just how fierce Luna is while also showing us just how vulnerable she really is. Her confiding in Verna was such a great scene because in that moment we got a glimpse into Luna’s head more than we did when we saw her bizarre visions in the first two issues. 

I have found myself wanting to continue following Bill just as much as Luna at this point. I can’t pinpoint exactly what it is, but there is something about him that makes him so amusing to me. Then to add to the unusual characters, we have Kido who makes me uneasy every single time that I see her. 

I talk all the time about how much I love Martin Morazzo’s artwork and this issue only establishes that love more. This story is enthralling and that is due to Christopher Cantwell’s writing, but this series would not be as compelling without Morazzo. His artwork adds this layer of beauty to a story that is sad and dramatic. The tone of this issue is one that keeps me on the edge of my seat and the visuals are what perfects that tone. The artwork is just unusual enough to make this issue seem a little creepy and it is a major part of the charm of the series.

She Could Fly #3 is another fantastic entry to an already imaginative story that continues to amaze me. This issue is entertaining on every page and it keeps me wanting more. There is still so much unknown in this series and Christopher Cantwell is unwrapping a story that keeps getting better. Add to that Martin Morazzo’s unique artwork and we have an issue that is consistenly captivating.
