Review: Devil’s Highway #3
One of my favorite directors of all time is Quentin Tarantino. His body of work transcends most other filmmakers, as each film is homage to a genre. He is also one of the few directors that draws from the films of 1970s. As each of his movies are both connected and an animal all its own.
As one of my favorite movies of his is Kill Bill Volumes 1 &2. AS they were two separate movies but told one connected narrative. As every time we felt our hero in peril, she always found a way out. In the third Devil’s Highway #3 Shannon gets in a pickle and eventually fights her way out.
We’re taken to Northern Illinois where the same young woman that was abducted awakes to a pine box only to see her captor smiling back as she is helpless to escape. Shannon is in Minneapolis trying to find clues as to who killed her father. That leads her to a strip club where she meets an FBI agent who gives her the agency’s file on the network. Her trail leads to an exotic pet dealer who tries to kill her. By the issue’s end, Shannon ends up handcuffed, but soon finds a way to escape and makes her captor give her information about the network
Overall, Devil’s Highway #3 is a great issue that feels exactly like a grindhouse movie. The story by Benajmin Percy is amazing. The art by the creative team is astonishing. Altogether, Devil’s Highway #3 is an action-packed issue that adds more than a few dollops of danger.
