From Image Comics, Skyward issue 3 gets us looking up from our own devices. But is that a good thing?

Issue 3 in this Image title lets us in on some story developments: “My Low-G Life” part 3, is written by Joe Henderson and illustrated by Lee Garbett (colors by Antonio Fabela).

Willa, whose father, still in hiding, though she would get help from Roger Barrow, her dad’s former colleague. Instead, Barrow wants to kill him! This issue deals mostly with Willa’s misguided trust of Barrow, and her attempts to escape. On the way, we learn more about life in the new zero gravity city; its ups and downs, as it were (sorry, couldn’t resist that one).

The art in Skyward is thrilling! Artist Garbett has a knack for rendering zero gravity scenes that are entirely convincing. I enjoy how he portrays weightless flight, (or gliding, coasting, etc). However, I must mention that Issue 3 is a VERY fast read. Most of the story is told in fast-moving action scenes, interspersed with dialogue. It’s a fun ride, but like at Disneyworld, you finish too fast and want more!

Image Comics, Skyward #3, $3.99 for 26 pages of content. Rated: Teen

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
