    Our heroes take on Secret Service agents to infiltrate an inauguration party and extract the brainwashed president’s daughter. Powerful drama, high-stakes action, and a worldwide conspiracy make Indigo Children #3 a compelling and entertaining read.

    INDIGO CHILDREN #3
    Are there characters in Indigo Children? I’m not sure. Thus far, each issue has delivered one trope-riddled origins story after another centered on a sensationally tragic backstory, but these super-powered protagonists still lack identifiable character traits. In Indigo Children #3 runs readers through an overblown Mexican cartel kidnapping story involving one of the Indigo Children in a way that can’t seem to decide whether all of their clandestine activity is necessary for survival or if these kids are powerful enough that no one can stop them regardless. The artwork, at least, is solid here, avoiding some of the past issue’s stumbles. There’s a nice touch in a 9-panel grid where a repressed memory takes the center square and seems to eat away at the gutter borders around it as it emerges into reality. It still reads like a lesser version of other comics, particularly the 2012 Harbinger relaunch, but this installment reads smoothly, at least.
