Burning Fields #3 Review

BurningFields3

by Michael Moreci, Tim Daniel, and Colin Lorimer

Dana and Abon are still searching for the serial killer of Kirkuk, with help from a cult that Abon had quit previously. Meanwhile, (what I believe is) ISIS almost starts a riot in the city square which leads to Verge violently stopping it. The issue ends with the killer claiming a victim, who had previously helped Dana and Abon in their investigation.

Lormier’s art is very atmospheric with its thick lines and plentiful shadows. The art gives the book a strong noir tone, even in the bright sunlight.

The pieces are beginning to come together, with rising tension three issues in. The political overtones give an all-too-real theme to the book that approaches topics others are too afraid to discuss. If I could recommend one book/series this year, I’m banking on this one. It’s a mix of True Detective and Pride of Baghdad, but feels like its own entity. With 5 more issues to go, there’s room for the story to get drawn out or veer off into left field but so far the creative team has done a superb job with the story. It’s not too late to catch up and jump on to this mini, there’s alot to enjoy and it feels like nothing else on the stands.
