I have to say… I had a rough time reviewing this title.  I read it in the afternoon and decided to jump into my review that night.  Well, I didn't get a chance to do that.  I had to wait until the following day to type something up.  Unfortunately, I couldn't remember too much about the book.  The dialogue and story just didn't stick with me.  So I had to read it again. 

A second pass did not endear me to the title. 

Issue 3 picks up where the previous issue left off - Monet, the villain of the piece, uses ancient technology to raise a Leviathan from the ocean.  Monet’s soldiers hold Bonnie Lass and her crew captive on her pirate ship.  

What follows next is a long fight sequence filled with exposition as the Leviathan watches on.  Monet makes quick work of Bonnie and her crew (thanks to the use of his ancient tech) until the tide is turned by random gunfire.  As the Leviathan exits into the ocean depths, Bonnie regains control of her ship and follows the beast into the ether - Determined to take the monster out. 

There is a lot of dialogue and plot that takes place during the fight scenes.  I found it a bit unbelievable that so much could be said during a punch.  Yes.  I know in the world of comics, you have to give a little leeway for character snark and commentary during a battle.  But with Bonnie Lass, I found it going too much over the top.  It became distracting. 

Michael Mayne's art seems Manga inspired, especially the fight scenes.  It's very reminiscent of early Adam Warren work.  It's clean with only a few moments where panel flow is lost in translation and I had to ask, "What just happened?" 

Like movies and television, there's a lot of hard work that goes into the development and creation of a comic.  So I appreciate the effort Mayne and Fluharty put into the title.  However, I really can't recommend this issue unless you're a devoted Bonnie Lass fan.
