    Shahidah is forced to drink a potion given by the Druids. They then send her on a journey that involves participating in a mystical trial. Meanwhile, Ling faces the wrath of a powerful ruler who sends her somewhere mysterious. After a series of supernatural encounters, Shahidah and Ling are reunited. The two must then decide how to proceed .The Story: MacKenzie and Walker continue to serve intrigue and excitement in this unique adventure. I like how Shahidah and Ling are forced to team up. They have an interesting dynamic that I would like to see more of. The pair have found themselves in precarious situation, and I look forward to find out what happens next in their story.In this edition, traditional artwork is highlighted by a subdued color palette emphasized by variations of blue. The action scenes are interesting and exciting. And the attention to detail is very connective. The illustration in this issue does a good job interpreting the tone of the narrative.

    With the setting and stakes already established, Compass #3 is able to lean into the fun and fear of this exploration phase and produces a compelling mid-point as answers (and possibly more mysteries) rest on the horizon. Read Full Review
