Review: Martian Comics #3
Adventures in alterity! A 52-page special issue featuring seven stories, including the next two chapters of “The Girl from Mars,” a Lazarus story, and four other tales demonstrating the scope and breadth of Martian history!
Martian Comics #3 is more short stories than the previous two issues, which does provide a lot of context about previous martian history, and other possessions. That actually helps build a lot of background for the CEO, and his less than normal background. While his personal possession background comes later on, it manages to stay grounded compared to some of the stranger stories in this issue.
I will admit, I love the cover art and its martian version of the painting American Gothic. Despite having three different artists the interior art is surprisingly consistent throughout. Even the more historical themed stories, are accurate enough in their presentations to be believable.
