27 is a 4-issue miniseries written by Charles Soule and drawn by Renzo Podesta. The series focuses on famous guitarist Will Garland, who has just turned 27 years old. Significantly, 27 is also the age in which many high-profile musicians have died. Will’s left hand has developed a nerve disorder leaving him unable to play guitar again. Will searches for a way to play again through unorthodox means, which leads to a device that allows him to play again for a short time but ultimately leads to a whole other world of creativity.
27 #3 unlocks some of the mysteries of the series. Many secrets are revealed and Will takes an interesting ride to figure out the meaning behind a secret entity that has a tighter hold on his life with every click of the device.
27 is an excellent series that weaves through the world of music, numerology, and creativity. Charles Soule has written a fantastic world where a man does anything to keep his passion alive, but ultimately receives much more than he bargained for. The art by Renzo Podesta is a different style that is definitely unique to the overall feel of the series.
If you’re a fan of music or mystery, then 27 is definitely one fun ride that you do not want to miss. Make sure you pick it up at your local comic shop.
27 #3 will be released in comic book shops on February 9, 2011.
