    Don't do what I did and start in the middle of the tale! However, with that said, I do recommend this comic. It makes me want to read on. This is also the last issue in this series' Third Volume! So I would highly recommend seeking out the prior two volumes as well. Read Full Review

    Readers seeking out a sequel to Trees or some sort of conclusion will be disappointed, but "Three Fates" stands alone as its own thing and succeeds as a story of a smalltown not prepared to meet the future in the cold distance of Russia. Read Full Review

    While I can see the very, very, light connections to the 2012 series and what it did, the reality is that this one stands alone well as a side story. It leaves me wanting more of it and more of the main work. Ellis' work is always interesting on some level and the small-town stuff here is some fun if simple scandinoir style material. What helped to make it a good bit more was Jason Howard's artwork that gave it a rough and really intense feeling and the little touches of events from the main Trees series. Howard is definitely the star here, however, and what he brings to this issue in particular really helps it to shine, especially with Dee Cunniffe's colorwork on the book. Read Full Review
