Review: Campaigners #3
When I hear the term “best laid plans,” I often wonder how any of us get through the day without some type of expectation? The saying usually arises when one feels their plan doesn’t quite work. When I was in the military this usually came into play all the time. We spent weeks going over routines and operations so that every mistake can be countered and adjusted. As we would say “failing to plan, is planning to fail,”
This concept would follow me to the civilian world as I have applied to every job I have had and though some things are out of my hands I felt I at least tried. I would pass this train of thought to my daughters. They’re now teenagers and they still think the same way. We all pre-visualize what we want to happen. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. In the third issue of Campaigners we Kydra is finally at Bee’s protest and the President is at the debate.
We find the President and his staff getting ready for the debate as he has his doubts. His staff has their own plans working to ensure the protest doesn’t interfere with theirs. We also find Kydra and Bee arriving at the protest to a crowd not like what she expected and the whole scene is quite different. Both Kydra and the President speak to their respective crowds and their audiences get to know them better but also they learn more about themselves. Things spiral out of control from there.
Overall, it’s a stellar third issue which peaks into the minds of both main characters. The story by Brendan Hykes is funny, smart and relevant. The art by MJ Barros and Sean Rinehart is striking and vivid. Altogether, it’s an excellent comic which gives readers an excellent backstory on both protagonists.
