Look up, it’s Strange Skies Over East Berlin #3. Are things actually looking up?

Well, yes and no. The series, all about Nazis and East and West Berlin, is a combination of horror, suspense, and drama.

Dramatic horror, what a gold mine for story conflict! So yes, things are looking up! But not for everyone!

This story, written by Jeff Loveness, has plenty of conflict. The Soviets have an alien monster that they can’t control!
So, interrogation takes an unusual turn…

With art by Lisandro Estherrren, coloured by Patricio Delpeche, this is a gripping series. The artwork is eerie, haunting and freewheeling. The colouring is effective, combining oranges with electric blues for heightened effect.

No matter what side of the Wall you find yourself on in this one, you’ll be entertained!

BOOM Studios, Strange Skies Over East Berlin #3, $3.99 for 22 pages of content. Assume Mature rating

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!!
