    'StarHenge' #3 depicts a magical recount of the forming of Stone Henge as well as a narrative track from a rather snarky Amber in the 21st century. But why her? As this issue unfolds, we start getting some idea of her role in this legendary tale.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    STARHENGE BOOK ONE #3 is the latest outstanding issue in a series that is among the most creative I have read in recent years. Sharp was not afraid to appeal to his readers' intelligence in the first two issues. They relied on readers' curiosity, willingness to fully engage with a new and detailed world, and patience for the story to lay its foundation. This issue begins to pay it off. It commands the same level of attention while being less dense and faster paced. The book is an elegant turn from exposition to plot advancement.

    Sharp continues to narrow the gap between the past, the present, and the future in an issue that brilliantly utilizes things like Celtic mythology in marvelous ways as he slowly brings everything together. Visually grandiose and an absolute feast for the eye. Starhenge continues to be an accomplishment from Sharp that truly deserves the title of Epic.

    Starhenge, Book One: The Dragon & The Boar #3 is very much like the two issues before it in that it is beautifully drawn and thoughtfully written, with this issue taking the reader even deeper and tightening the narrative threads even further in a way that is enticing and genuinely so next-level it's hard to describe without giving away important elements of how it all intersects. Of particular delight is more of the legend that is delved into here. It is staggeringly well done. There is a surprising turn in the final pages of the issue that are as exquisite to look at as it is to consider intellectually as part of the story. With that in mind, the only real "weakness" of this issue falls to the same complaint I had for the previous: this format does not suit this wide, expansive story. It should be one immersive body of work, not an issue-by-issue adventure.
