Bonnie Lass has
provided something that has surely been missing from comic books of
the past few years, crazy pirate action, and the third issue
delivers a hell of a lot of that.
Issue two finished on a rather large cliffhanger
and suitably issue three picks up right where issue two left off.
Bonnie and her motley crew are seemingly at the mercy of the evil
Monet (yes thatís the bad guyís name) who has swooped in at the last
minute to steal the glory of Bonnie solving the mystery of the
Leviathan. A fierce, rockíem sockíem duel between Bonnie and Monet
later and both crews are sucked into a mysterious whirlpool with the
beast of the leviathan.
Iíve generally enjoyed the story of Bonnie
Lass, but in this issue I found myself really confused during
Monetís explanation of his grand plan. There was just an overload of
new information that was hard to process all at once. Thereís some
crazy history, information about Bonnieís dad, secret organizations
revealed and plans to take over the world. It probably didnít help
that all this information on the story was interspersed with amazing
fight scenes between Bonnie and Monet.
I found myself ignoring the speech bubbles and
instead concentrating on one of the best fights Iíve ever seen in
comics. More like a fight out of Dragonball Z you could
really feel the force behind every crushing blow due to the intense
action lines around the point of impact. Apart from the fantastic
action we are also treated to some rather epic scenes involving the
Leviathan monster and Bonnie and Monetís ships floating round it in
the middle of a whirlpool. It will be interesting to see how it
turns out in print format though as one or two pages appeared as
half pages in my digital copy and I wonder what they will do with
Issue 3 does bring Monet out of the shadows and
presents him as a more than adequate opponent for Bonnie and her
crew. He has that evil swagger to him where he commands the page,
especially when he has one up on Bonnie and her crew.
Bonnie Lass #3
is another great looking entry in this limited series. The fight
scenes are some of the best Iíve seen with the creators
Dragonball Z influences really shining through. Issue 3 gives us
a lot of plot information, but it was almost too much to take in at
once and to make any sense of it all you are going to have to read
through it a few times.
