    Comic Watch

    Kill Your Darlings #3 is joyous yet emotionally raw. So much character is packed into one book that it’s a miracle it isn’t an overstuffed mess, but instead a dare I say perfect comic with pacing, writing, and art deserving of award.

    This book comes at you like a giant stuffed spider made of cotton candy and razor blades. With each page turn you are left wondering what comes next and the brilliant juxtaposition of color and line being dream light and soft yet oddly threatening keeps you off guard and anxious from cover to cover as you follow along a story where the only thing you can trust is the unreliable narrator who sits at the center of this web where dreams and reality collide.

    Nerd Initiative

    This story does a great job of hitting us hard with scenes such as a baby being eaten but, then also making us feel as though we are kids filled to the brim with imaginative adventures. The vibrant colors and the sense of adventure everyone is taking us on brings me into the story and in an odd way gets me feeling like a kid again. (no babies were harmed in my childhood.)

    There is so much more to this story as we begin to find out and the cliffhanger we are left on has me ready for issue 4. Hats off to the entire crew for making me feel something again.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Parker and Sheridan continue to craft an entertaining and thrilling story in this issue. The series has some great world building throughout it and I love the tension and suspense throughout the issue. The plot is incredibly entertaining and the characters are compelling. I look forward to seeing what happens next.

    The Art: Quinn delivers some fantastic art in the issue. The contrast between the more animated characters and the realistic ones is amazing and I love the look of the world itself.

    Kill Your Darlings pours on the exposition with its third issue. We finally get back to Rosewood and learn all about how Rose’s imaginary world not only lived on after the horrors of Issue #1 but is slowly decaying by whatever caused her mother’s death. What “it” is and how it still connects to the real world (and the horrific scenes that open each issue) remain unclear, but the visual of rainbow-colored veins sucking the life out of a vibrant world to leave nothing but desolation and gray makes for some chilling imagery.
