Review: Livewire #3

On the run!

Livewire #3

Fleeing from more than just the law, Livewire’s about to find out whether she has the strength to survive on her own in a world that hates and fears her, with only her memories of better days to rely on…but if she’s not careful, even those can be snatched away by the mercenary hunting her down!

Livewire#3 deals much more directly with Livewire’s recent past, and how she perceives and justifies her turning off the power to the US.

After escaping the people who captured and implanted a power nullifier of some kind in her brain, Amanda McKee faces a threat from her past in the form of a character I genuinely don’t remember, but could easily have featured in a prior series (I didn’t look it up because it wasn’t relevant to me – everything I needed to know about the character and their relationship with Livewire was provided in this comic).

Although there’s a lot to unpack within this comic, the events within its pages probably happen over the course of minutes rather than hours, giving Livewire #3 a frenetic pace with a very minimal cast of characters. This gives the comic a very intimate feel, which although quite at odds with the previous issue, is still every bit as intense. Vita Ayala reinforces Livewire’s capabilities with her powers diminished whilst simultaneously through the use of interspersed flashbacks they flesh out the other focal point of the comic.

Raul Allen, Patricia Martin and Scott Koblish bring an easily identifiable colour scheme; there’s a slight difference in colour hue between the flashbacks and the present that enables you to easily differentiate between the two periods. The artistic team are on top form once again, remaining deliciously consistent in the quality as they veer from super detailed backgrounds to panels with a blank background that highlights the action within.

Livewire #3 is another strong comic in a series that’s focusing on one of Valiant’s, indeed all of comics, more complex characters; we’re three issues in now and I still don’t know whether I’d consider Livewire a hero or villain. It’s this ambiguity and Ayala’s ability to stay in the moral murkiness that’s such a strong point for this series, and why this book is firmly lodged on my pull list.
