Betrayal comes from all sides as Poe’s new friendship with Bianca creates chaos in the Maze, and the pair discover they may have even fewer allies than they thought in their race to the heart of the City.
The closest of friends can come from the most opposite of worlds. The worst of friends can equally come from the same world. Both of these are a big part of what drives the third issue of Feathers, as sad as the latter being true is for our lead character.
With the way it ended in issue two, it was pretty evident things were going to get pretty intense. Poe and his father have a pretty heated discussion, and he runs off again with Bianca. Poor Bianca just wants to get home, and with her now disheveled appearance, finds out city guards think she’s just a kid from the Maze. On top of it all, people who Poe thought were his friends turn out to be more worried about themselves.
Yet again, the artwork has kept my eye’s full attention and got even better. There were some really sharp sequences going on in this story that drew me in. In particular, there was this absolutely wonderful and vibrant set of panels with some really great contrast in color. Of course, we also got some great shots of the massive city that our characters live in that were done quite nice.
I had a really good feeling about this title from the first issue and that has not changed up to this point. As it appears we’re now getting into the really good stuff, I’m very anxious to see how things turn out in the next book. It’s not too late to grab onto this book while it’s still fairly fresh and I would definitely say it’d be worth doing so.
