Review: The Precinct #3

Pecinct03-Cov-A-Davila

Mort and Jo dive deeper into the mystery of the steampunk monstrosities, while danger lurks around the corner! A dangerous new opponent makes his move, and our heroes face off against an army of mechanical spiders. Not everyone is going to survive, so find out who lives and who dies in the thrilling new steampunk series from Frank J. Barbiere and Crizam Zamora.

The worlds of mysticism and steampunk continue to collide, as a new player emerges from the shadows. Mort and Joe continue finding, a dangerous dwarf who was making the large steampunk monsters. Of course as they do that, another murder occurs at the legs of mechanical spiders, removing a powerful figure from the alchemy academy. I’m curious to see how the story written by Frank J. Barbiere develops further, with only two issues left after this.

The art and story, intertwine as more machines appear. Even the machines change in size, and complexity as the plot continues to develop around an atmosphere, of machines, magic, and murder. Despite the change in size, and complexity they still manage to retain a degree of realism. That’s all due to the talent of Crizam Zamora. I will admit the cover is gorgeous, managing to display the collision of steampunk and magic. Well done Sergio Davila.
