    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel May 10, 2023

    Phantom Road #3 readjusts mid-drive, changing lanes to a more compelling mystery and proactive character. Agent Weaver brings a new heat to this story, threading hints of her past on the Phantom Road with the events surrounding Dom and Birdie. The issue sprinkles hints at the larger mystery while also recapping a perspective of the first two issues. Much of the tension and rhythm of the issue is thanks to Waltas layouts and organic but intrusive flashbacks. Bellaires haunting color palette ensures that the change in time and place is never confusing, while still matching that unexpected shift. Read Full Review
