    Messina has worked on a profoundly big canvas for the duration of the series. Lovecraft’s writing is real and dangerous for a group of young women living in New York. While it IS huge, Messina limited the five issues of the series to a relatively small cast of characters. There’s so much more that could be done in the world of 3 Keys that could be great fun to explore if Messina was given the opportunity to do so. It would be interesting to see what he might do with the style in future issues if he ever decides to explore the concept more fully.

    3Keys was able to really make amazing use of David Messina’s dynamic artwork, so it’s with a heavy heart that this final issue feels like the weakest of the mini-series so far. Everything wraps up just a bit too cleanly, which is ironic considering the amount of blood and guts that are spread throughout the comic’s pages. Messina’s art feels as though it isn’t able to convey the speed necessary for the dynamic action taking place here, which is a shame as I’ve really appreciated his character work so far. Overall, the mini-series is still a energetic and interesting read, I just wish it had been able to stick the landing.
