ROUND THREE! Amarosa has survived two grueling fights and now the stakes are even higher as she finds herself where she never dreamed she’d be: space! Her hands are full trying to survive and learn about herself, but it seems that everyone knows more about her then she does!
I don’t particularly like jumping around a series, especially when trying to review it, but sometimes it can’t be avoided. Granted, I only missed the second issue of the series so far, but even one issue can leave you hanging. Hopefully, with how it seems Fight Like a Girl is set up, I didn’t lose out on any major information.
With the third battle of Amarosa, she faces off against her latest foe in the expanse of outer space. The first and presumably second battle have not exactly been simple, and this one is no exception. At one point, it almost appears as if her quest to save her brother is over, but she manages to get back into the fight. As you’d have to think, she also happens to win, in quite brutal fashion.
While I was a bit unsure of how the artwork sat with me in the opening issue, I felt more comfortable with it here. There are still some places where I had to double back, but that’s mostly just due to the unconventional story itself, not the artwork. The style has that rougher approach to it, but is doing a decent job illustrating this very different kind of tale.
There was definitely far less of the “normal” world in this issue, save for a brief scene with Amarosa and her boyfriend. With the slight gap I had in reading, I don’t know for sure why exactly that is even written in honestly. Even so, this wild adventure that has virtually no limit in its creativity is still a pretty fun read and has potential to grow even better.
