    PRISM STALKER #3 gives us a Vep that is not willing to give up. Although sometimes the world building seems to drag on, it's absolutely necessary for the adventure Sloane Leong is going to drop us into. The world is absolutely stunning to look at, giving us colors beyond our wildest imagination. This is definitely a story and issue that you need to pick up. Read Full Review

    Some horrifying moments are the only real downside of this issue; it feels like a lost middle chapter, but of a story that I want to track down the rest of. Read Full Review

    This issue did end up feeling more like a buildup issue than anything else; everything was entirely focused on Vep's training. Things haven't moved forward very far, as far as the plot is concerned. Sure, we're concerned for Vep's safety, but I'd also be surprised if they killed or failed her before the plot got to move along a bit more. I can't wait until we get into the meat of the series again, that should be really interesting. Read Full Review

    It is hard to know how to rate this book. It is hard to know which part of this book Sloane loves more. The writing or the art. The book is amazing to look at because it really does feel like an Alien setting. The world building is in full swing and there is a lot to take in with struggle being central to learning the rules. Some of the trippy nature of this book is starting to give way to a more concrete vision of the universe. As our main character comes to understand the rules of her new world we as the readers begin to understand more as well. I think my first disagreement with the writing of the story is that I think Sloane's world building lasting three issues may be a misstep in keeping readers engaged. Many readers like to know earl more

    I don't think this is totally without it's merits, but I think this fails tragically as a comic book. There are just so many concepts here and the pacing would be much better suited to a printed novel. The art is interesting and very alien, but I actually believe it would work better if left to your imagination. I am not easily giving this a negative score since I believe there are positives that could be put towards a good novel as I said, but as it is the execution just seems sloppy and ill-suited to the format, it feels sometimes like the art and writing together are fighting over which should grab your attention.
