    Crimson Reign #3 is a tough read. It’s not as grandiose as the prior issues, and the dense dialogue can be overwhelming. Instead of following in the vein of the first two issues, Soule chooses to weave a different sort of tale. The Archivist’s backstory is equal parts captivating and haunting. At the end, I felt like I needed a cold shower, and Soule managed to give me that shower with his injection of hope. No matter how Crimson Reign ends, the Archivist has a new lease on life. Add in all of the easter eggs and Crimson Reign #3 is another notch in the belt for Charles Soule. Cummings’ art continues to work wonders for the tone Soule has set for this entire series. The stakes will do nothing but heighten heading into the final two issues. Get on the ride now if you aren’t already on.
