Tyson Hesse continues the assault on his protagonist in this third issue, but an opening exists for growth and her becoming more of a person we can begin to relate to. I love Hesse's talent with banter; his characters are defined by their snark, and everyone's got a huge supply of it. It's one crude slam after another delivered with flair and joy. It's a blast to follow along with, and it's really smart and witty.
The art style continues to deliver, and he gets to play with a whole new palette under the clouds. The new environment is markedly more dingy, yet the crisp nature of his style shines through it all. There's no dearth of action, and the new characters and locations bring a whole new angle to the mix.
I have no idea how Hesse will wrap this up in just one final issue, but I'm really excited to see how he does it. I honestly hope these characters continue on after this limited run. The world is fun, and I always need more sky pirates in my life. Maybe he'll write the nest Skies of Arcadia game. A man can dream.
