In Review: Obey Me #3

Sent to investigate a location inside Ammon’s domain, Vanessa and Monty encounter more than what they were expecting, as servants of another Infernal Archduke are infringing on Ammon's turf.

Synopsis: Sent to investigate a location inside Ammon’s domain, Vanessa and Monty encounter more than what they were expecting, as servants of another Infernal Archduke are infringing on Ammon’s turf. This encounter will wake up lost memories for Vanessa, who will have to wrestle with the traumas of her past while at the same time facing off against the dangerous cultists of the Crimson Order. Vanessa and Monty will wage battle through the old sewers of the city, aiming to exterminate the intruders while finding out the reason for their invasion.

Review: Mario Mentasti continues his run on Obey Me as we learn a bit more about Vanessa and her past.

The Story

Vanessa and Hellhound Monty are sent on a mission to take out the Crimson Order who are working on behalf of Satan. Things get complicated when Vanessa starts to have flashbacks to her memories of being made into a demon.

The Artwork

Ben Herrera gets to go totally nuts with the artwork in this issue as he has several battles to illustrate in which Monty and V take on some of their toughest opponents to date. Page 17 gets particularly frantic as we see them take on just one wave of bad guys.

Overall

This was a solid issue in which we learn a little more about Vanessa’s past when it is revealed that she barely remembers being turned into a demon and seemingly did not receive decent training. We also hear mention of Angels from Heaven and human saints for the first time.

The banter between Vanessa and Monty continues to be the high point of this comic as they dispatch villains and critique each other’s performance. Although that is mostly Monty critiquing Vanessa.

I’m really enjoying how Monty is kind of acting as a mentor figure for Vanessa.

Overall. A fun issue.
