BFyxXkXHI am a sucker for anything that has to do with the 1980’s which is why I am fan of Stranger Things, but it also has transitioned into the comic world for myself. While it was a relatively slow week for comic books this week, I couldn’t pass up on the chance to review the third issue of Morning In America which is written by Magdalene Visaggio (Oh S#!t It’s Kim & Kim) and illustrated by Claudia Aguirre (We Are The Danger) and it was released by Oni Press. In the previous issues, weird things have been happening in the small midwestern town of Tucker, Ohio. High school kids have been going missing and the police are not doing anything about it. Then we cue in the Sick Sisters who seem to be the only ones with the guts to try and investigate what is happening since the events match what has happened in a book and one of their own was taken by this bat beast. In this issue, they decide that it’s time they take a closer look and that means breaking into the police station to try and get some answers. After they get what they came for, the sick sisters are then faced with the problem that they are trying to solve, but will the beast claim another victim or will they stand tall against the beast?

IcfTDVwUThis is one comic that is keep me on the edge of my seat because I want to know what is going to happen next. The writing on this comic is very well done in my opinion, but sometimes you’re left wondering how in the hell are these girls so lucky because they are always doing stupid sh**! I know they are getting the job done, but they have such impressive records with the local police that I am surprised they are allowed to roam the streets. The writer definitely leaves you with a lot to think about from now until the next issue because it’s an almost where do they go from here kind of things. Magdalene has done quite an awesome job from issue one all the way to now so I am not worried at all as far as how they will handle it moving forward. This I believe is Claudia’s first comic as the penciller, but her years of experience as a colorist has done her well heading into this one as she pulls double duty there. Overall, I thought the work was pretty good and while it may not be my absolute favorite, I think it definitely fits the overall mood, setting, and content of the comic. I definitely think this is a comic book worth checking out so get where you can and check out my grades below:
