‘Undone by Blood’ #3 review

It’s wonderful to get a bang for your buck with two genuinely unique narratives. 

It is the little things that can make your day. After waiting for a long time, it’s really nice to have the latest installment of Undone by Blood. Reading this issue is reminiscent of my experience watching Twin Peaks — it’s wonderful to read something that rides the fine line between reverence and dissection.

This issue really brings out the hidden depth behind Ethel Cole Grady. The series thus far has been dishing out moments of backstory amidst the layered beast this plot has amassed for itself. Seeing Ethel perform some detective work paralleled with Sol Eaton’s travel in the desert gives this great dichotomy for the issue. Ethel’s plot allows for these playful scenarios of bribery and reveal this kid acting tough, while Sol’s story shows a hardened man trying to take back his son.

Amongst the plotting, Nadler and Thompson offer great sprinklings of prose throughout this issue, with some wonderful artwork by Sami Kivela. Kivela has contributed standout pages within every issue of this book, with the last three pages being my favorite yet. He presents some really unique visuals that really enrapture you into the comic. His depiction of the ’70s is such a fun look into history, with scenes that are lush with a vibrancy of their own. These images stand out on their own for being capable of visualizing the story, while still giving readers space of breath as each panel catches our eyes. 

The book properly holds attention through some subtle coloring and lettering. Jason Wordie’s colors for each panel is simply seductive the way he imbues the artwork with a breath of life with his ability to give subtle cues that ease readers into the two different narratives while still maintaining cohesion. More so, each panel gets some fantastic coloring and work that makes them feel lived in. Furthermore, the lettering was done by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou magnifies the wonderful narration. Word balloons and captions offer characters their own voice and lend into their thoughts with situations. 

Overall, it’s nice to have this adventure back in stores. It’s wonderful to get a bang for your buck with two genuinely unique narratives. 

On a more serious note: I implore you to follow these guys for their newsletters. They both offer some unique insights into current events.
