It's been a big week for Lon Eisley as she's transitioned from accepting money to kill people, to saving one kid's life, to now having to save an entire city from the machinations of a billionaire wannabe Bond villain just looking for a way to vent her desire for more street art featuring burnt skin and boiled blood. When there are no good choices left, your only option is to look good making the worst ones, right?

From Sami Kivela [CHUM] & Ryan K Lindsay [NEGATIVE SPACE, and DC Writers Workshop] comes a gonzo dystopian tale of pyrokinetic sleeper agents, bitter exes, and beautiful art.

    As the book heads into its final chapter, the road ahead is unclear. What this story will ultimately become is a mystery, and the same is true for its core cast, but everything is all the more exciting because of that. Read Full Review

    If nothing else, Beautiful Canvas is a sure fire risk taker. The beauty of all the unanswered questions that the plot gives us that don't completely get answered so far don't bother me enough to turn me away. This gripping comic takes hold and won't let go. Here's to looking forward to the finale from the BC creative team in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Beautiful Canvas #3 may move a little too quickly at times, but nonetheless it is yet another sensational entry in this mini-series. Delivering an exciting set of events that sees Lon go to the rescue of Alex, the creative team give us a product that is enticing from start to finish. During this we get more than a few surprising moments, with the climax sure to leave readers in a state of shock. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Sep 6, 2017

    The cliffhanger is aptly poetic and does a good job of setting up the finale next issue. While I do love the Lon and Asia aspects of this story I am becoming more and more frustrated with any lack of answers given so far. Seeing as the story is wrapping up next issue, I am worried they wont have enough time to answer each question sufficiently. However I am willing to grin and bear it because the payoff is bound to be intensely emotional and suitably beautiful. Read Full Review
