Review – Alabaster Wolves #3 of 5

Written By: Caitlín R. Kiernan
Art & Letters: Steve Lieber
Colors: Rachelle Rosenberg
Cover: Greg Ruth

We last saw our favorite albino bad-ass in a bad state and about to die. In this issue Dancy seems like she’s on the losing end when she starts to tangle with that werewolf, or is she? She soon finds help in the form of an unlikely ally and Dancy is trying to figure out why she’s been saved. Things quickly become tense between Dancy and her savior as her new-found “friend” has questions that are expected to be answered. Dancy, in no position to argue because she’s still weak and recovering, obliges and we are given a glimpse into the past. Dancy’s past is just as interesting as her present and her journey leads her to trouble. She, like always, does what she needs to do and she is slowly figuring out what it all means. Now that her Angel (guide) has left her she has the daunting task of doing it all on her own, with maybe a little help from the rude crow!

Caitlín R. Kiernan is flat-out amazing. Her writing style is breathtaking and hands down some of the best I’ve read. Dancy is an amazing character layered with depth and sadness. Steve Lieber’s art is the same as Kiernan’s writing, it is beautiful and brings everything to life in a fantastic way. Each character in this comic is intriguing and the story itself very interesting. From Dancy to the crow everything works impeccably together. If you haven’t checked out this series yet, well, there’s something wrong with you, so go pick it up, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
