    ‘Strange Academy: Finals’ leans into all that has made this magical series such a delight through its two volumes, focusing on the fleshed-out characters that should have a place in the Marvel Universe for many years to come. Despite what many might believe, this series perfectly showcases that teenage character books can work within the Marvel Universe as a whole and is a perfect blueprint for not only more teen-focused books but just well-written character books.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Young continues to maintain a great balance between humor and drama in this issue. The confrontation between Calvin and Emily is great and there are some great moments of growth from the character as you witness the cracks in their group. It’s a great moment buffered with awesome action throughout. I also love the end of the issue and what it means not only for Emily and the others, but Doyle specifically.

    The Art: Ramos delivers some beautifully detailed visuals throughout the issue and I love the details in the characters as well as how brilliantly the style works with the themes of the series and its characters.

    This character-focused issue really lays out all the players and raises the stakes for what’s to come.

    Though this issue of Strange Academy: Finals starts off awfully slow, things pick up before too long, giving readers an exciting battle. Some may call this another one of those filler issues as it comes with the same general vibes as an annual issue. What stands out here, however, is that the title has seemingly revealed its true protagonist—hint, Calvin, hint—and given him the much-deserved spotlight. If there’s one thing for certain, it’s that both Young and Ramos care deeply about this batch of characters, that much is evident through their consistent work on this book.

    Major Spoilers

    Very few comics keep me on the edge of my seat, wanting to know more. Strange Academy: Finals #3 is one of those comics. These are relatively new characters that are a blank slate for unique plotlines, and I want to know how they resolve. With that in mind, Strange Academy: Finals #3 is a solid 4 out of 5 stars.
