Review: Snow Angels #3

Snow Angels #3

Snow Angels has been an amazing series. It has delivered tension, mystery, and a world that feels both hopeful and bleak. Set in a snow-covered trench, the story follows a father and his two daughters as they attempt to survive a massacre in their town by the mysterious Snowman. Snow Angels #3 delivers a confrontation with the Snowman as we discover more about the puzzling trench.

Jeff Lemire‘s plotting and writing has been fantastic. Like the snow-covered world itself, there’s a minimal aspect to his dialogue and what’s told to readers. We’re teased just enough to continue the story, never any more than what’s needed.

Snow Angels #3 particularly stands out as it features multiple striking moments, each toying with a different emotion. There’s a confrontation with the Snowman, something completely unexpected, and a reveal about the world and the trench. Tension, wonder, and confusion are presented at different moments taking the reader on a reading journey.

Lemire also delivers heart too. We get some very touching moments concerning this family as we learn why they’re three and we get more of their history. It’s information that adds depth to the characters and and much more child-like qualities to Mae and Milli. At its heart, the story is about a family trying to survive in a harsh world.

Jock‘s art continues to be amazing. Along with lettering of Steve Wands, the art is the usual breathtaking and brilliant. Since it’s set in a frozen world, there’s a limited amount you can do as far as color and background but the art nails it all. The use of whites and blues create a harsh environment. Details flesh out the situation and breathes more life than what you’d expect in a world of white sheets of snow. In particular, what happens to the Snowman is cold but beautiful at the same time.

Snow Angels #3 builds upon the story in so many ways. We learn more about our main characters. We learn more about the frozen world. There’s a focus on adding details while also delivering excitement and wonderment. It’s a fantastic continuation of a series that has me excited to see what’s happening next and where it all goes.
