In Review: Charlies Angels #3

Somethin’ ain’t right with Charlie, and not only are the missions he’s sending the Angels on also “not right,” but they are downright treasonous as well.
Synopsis: Somethin’ ain’t right with Charlie, and not only are the missions he’s sending the Angels on also “not right,” but they are downright treasonous as well. It hasn’t taken the Angels long to figure out this Charlie might not be their Charlie— which means the next mission he sends them on may very well be a suicide mission! The sexiest crimefighters of the 70s are back, baby, with their greatest adventure yet chronicled by the sexiest comic creators of the 21st Century, John Freakin’ Layman, and Joe Frickin’ Eisma!! If you miss this issue you will sink into a pit of existential despair so deep and dark and profound it may take you the rest of your life to recover!!!
Review: Picking up from the last issue. Charlie has been kidnapped by a pair of East Germans that look suspiciously like Jedward. Having sent the angels on one fake mission to get CIA Agent Steele out of the way. The Angels soon figure out they have been duped and set about trying to continuing Steele’s mission, which takes them to East Berlin. 
Having successfully gotten to the CIA safe house. The Angels must figure out what to do next and also find out what is up with their boss Charlie. 
Written by John Layman with art by Joe Eisma this third issue continues the hijinks and seventies humor. The dialogue between the three Angels is pretty much in keeping with what you had in the television series, which Sabrina being the brains and tactical thinker, Jill being the natural flirt and Kelly being the sleek and stealthy one. 
If my memory serves we never seen the agents go to Europe in the TV series. Especially not East Europe, but they did meet plenty of spies and hoods in their adventures. 
Eisma’s art once more does a great job of capturing the mood and the 1970’s dress sense, which was quite frankly terrible. I mean you could literally hide half of NATO’s armory up your trouser legs back in the 70’s. Especially when wearing flared pants. 
Overall. This is a really strong issue, which does much to advance the story.
