Danger Girl Revolver #3 is just what you’ve missed about Danger Girl comics. Hopefully now that they’re back at IDW we can look forward to more minis or maybe even an ongoing. This franchise is too much fun to let lay for too long.
Series co-creator Andy Hartnell tells a classic Danger Girl story here, actually it’s more than your typical Danger Girl story as he uses this issue (and series) to delve into the personal lives of the team, which we haven’t seen before. Also, there’s TONS of action, intrigue, and a nice ongoing mystery. This issue is a goldmine for fans of the franchise, because Hartnall crams this issue with tons of past Danger Girl character cameos, which is a real treat for long time fans. My only complaint would be that it’s a quick read, but that’s due to pacing, and not lack of story.
Chris Madden, hot off his fantastic Jack Avarice is The Courier mini-series, is the perfect choice to draw this series. His art is SUPER kinetic, and if you can’t get series co-creator J. Scott Campbell (who does the covers here), he’s the next best thing. I could live the rest of my life enjoying his art rotating between Jack Avarice and Danger Girl minis. His page layouts in this issue are fantastic, much more cinematic than what he did in Jack Avarice, and a great fit to the style and flow of the Danger Girl series.
There is nothing to not absolutely LOVE about this comic. Even if you’re not a Danger Girl fan, you’ll can still enjoy this comic. If you are a fan, this is a love letter to you by the creative team. Either way, it’s a winner! Pick it up!!
