In Review: BANG! #3

Dr. Queen, scientist extraordinaire, is on the cutting edge of technology, industry, and—with the help of her telepathically controlled super car—terrorist butt kicking

Synopsis: Dr. Queen, scientist extraordinaire, is on the cutting edge of technology, industry, and—with the help of her telepathically controlled super car—terrorist butt kicking. But when things go south in her attempt to take down a hacking supervillains diabolical plans, Queen finds that the lines between truth and fiction are blurred, and shes drafted into a war to save reality itself.

 

The Story

Whereas the first two issues focused on introducing us to secret agent Thomas Cord and Detective John Shaw. This issue introduces us to Dr. Queen and her telepathically controlled car with a special form of Artificial Intelligence called B.O.I. This issue follows Doctor Queen as she with the help of her car takes down a crime syndicate in order to get hold of their latest piece of technology and hack into it.

 

The Artwork

Wilfredo Torres gets a lot of great stuff to play within this issue. From drones to a telepathically controlled car to Dr. Queen being tortured and then getting the better of her torturers. This issue is a none stop meal of action. I really loved the panels where Dr. Queen is beating the bad guys up, which is drawn in silhouette. I also liked how the revelation of Dr. Queen’s suits true purpose was revealed in the final few panels of the book.

 

Overall

Matt Kindt continues to entertain by introducing us to the various characters of Bang! Giving each character an individual issue is a great idea and is somewhat reminiscent of how Marvel slowly introduced us to the Avengers universe by giving us the individual heroes’ journey stories first. I loved how Thomas Cord came into the story at the close and introduced himself to Dr. Queen and the way in which the pulp books tie everything together is a fun concept.

Overall. A great introduction for Dr. Queen. I look forward to the issue where Chord, Queen, and Shaw start to work together, which hopefully will be coming up in the October issue.
