My Week in Comics: Suicide Girls #3

Is it too soon to call the latest SuicideGirls issue 'meaty'? Because it totally is.

Amid the full frontal flashes and badass women kicking cyborg ass all over, we're finally getting somewhere in SuicideGirls #3. The girls are knee-deep in trouble as one of their own gets captured by the Way of Life Corporation, not to mention there's a traitor in their midst. But the worst is yet to come, as the girls discover that Way of Life is planning something so sinister it could change the way people think...literally!

Let me get this out of the way first: topless girls, topless girls everywhere. With the Suicide Girls spending most of their time half-naked in this issue, the amount of fanservice jumped 200% compared to the last two issues. But then again, we're talking about a comic book based on an alt-pr0n site filled with naked tattooed women here. It's par for the course.

The funny thing is, you still notice the plot unfold. You still notice the little character quirks Steve Niles and Brea Grant squeeze in here and there. You still notice the dynamic action scenes and the tense exchanges. There just happen to be bare breasts in them. That takes a heck of a lot of work, but the creative team manages to not only be interesting amidst all that nudity, but to be fun as well.

Speaking of fun, David Hahn seems to be having just that with this ish. He gives these girls so much character its crazy awesome. Porter (the double pony-tailed bespectacled geek) in particular is so much fun to see and read, and has become my favorite out of the bunch. Glasses + ponytails = win. Not to mention the gorgeous, gorgeous Cameron Stewart pinups at the back. Oh my.

SuicideGirls #3 is just as fun as the last two issues, if not more. It's starting to get crazy interesting, and it can only get crazier from here. This is a 4 out of 5.


Can't get enough of The Geek's reviews? Head on over to The Outhousers, where a review of Zatanna #14 awaits. Get back on the horse, Dini, and finish this before the big DC reboot!
