The Rook #3 is an immensely fun experience that pushes the franchise forward while keeping time travel in play mode. If you have never heard of it before here's your chance, go out and buy the first two issues plus this one because you won't regret it. Read Full Review
The Rook's plot is cool, as far as time travel stories go it's super fun and obviously plays on its pulp influence. The Rook himself is a badass character, gallivanting through time with a sword and a revolver trying to right past wrongs or just blasting into the weird future in search of whatever. This iteration of the classic character will never be able to capture the magic of those brilliant black and white pages from Eerie all those years ago, but Grant and artist Paul Gulacy will damn well try. After the arbitrary origin story is out of the way hopefully this new Rook will be able to really pick up. Falling somewhere between The Adventures of Luther Arkwright and 2000 AD, The Rook will bend your brain with its action-packed time travel insanity. Read Full Review
