Klarion #3 Preview

Written by: Ann Nocenti
Art by: Trevor McCarthy, Sandu Florea and Staz Johnson
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: December 10, 2014

Agents from S.H.A.D.E. are hot on Klarion’s trail, Zell’s powers are out of control, there’s a spy in the Moody Museum and buddybots are taking over the city! As if that weren’t bad enough, Klarion’s pagan magic finds its match in the tech wizardry of Coal and the Necrots. Will Klarion save his first new friends on Earth – or will he slip out a dimensional back door?

Just reading that solicit makes my head spin.  I'll give Ann Nocenti one thing, her books are always jam packed with characters, plot and dialogue.  Listen, I'm not going to give you generic preview speak ("I can't wait", "Things are heating up", "But brick not hit back") or lie and say this is one of my favorite books, it's not.  Not even close.  I will tell you that the art has been fantastic and while the story has been confusing and convoluted, it's the best Ann has written in the New 52. If you like dark magical stories with crazy characters and situations, give it a try.  Just remember, You break my record, now I break you, like I break your friend.
