Sons Of The Devil #3 - A Review

Travis Crowe faces a jail sentence if he doesn't continue his court-ordered therapy-sessions. Unfortunately, the support group for orphans that he signed up for isn't doing much to help him control his anger-management issues. Worse yet,Travis' attempts to keep the therapy a secret is starting to drive a wedge between him and his girlfriend. And there's a woman in his group who seems to have an unusual interest in him...

The best bits of Sons of The Devil #3 are those that don't focus on our main character. A flashback at the start does far more to advance the plot than the sections focused on Travis. Most of the book does little more than reaffirm what we already know - that Travis has issues with his temper and trusting others. Still, one scene near the end offers some suggestion as to just where this story is going.

Thankfully, the artwork by Toni Infante continues to impress. Infante has a rough, angular style that is a good match for Brian Buccellato's scripts. The book's final pages promise a major game-changing moment next month, making this book well worth picking up though it does seem like the issue is treading water at times. Still, the pay-off at the end is worth it.
