    Ok, so here's my biggest complaint: The last volume was published in 2018 and this one came out in 2021. That's a looooong fucking time between reading these. That's not to say it wasn't good, but I'm not quite as hungry for more as I once was. And to be completely honest, I only kinda -sorta of remembered what had happened previously in a general sense. Side note: Rowan should seriously beat the shit out of whoever gave her that fucked-up haircut. What the hell is that? A reverse mullet? Also, this Ok, so here's my biggest complaint: The last volume was published in 2018 and this one came out in 2021. That's a looooong fucking time between reading these.

Side note: Rowan should seriously beat the shit out of whoever gave her that fucked-up haircut. What the hell is that? A reverse mullet? Also, this one felt a lot more like a trashy romance novel than a book about witches. Now, who the hell doesn't like to see a little sex in their comics? I know I do! But there wasn't much in the way of actual story this time around and it felt like padding. Hey, look! A dick and some tits! Shhhh! Pay no attention to the fact that there's no real meat on the bones of this volume. Ok, it's not like nothing happens. It does. Especially at the end when Rowan is forced into the 'choice' that you know she'll eventually be faced with. But I felt no surprise when she chose and I felt no real danger for her loved ones. If you have eyes, you already knew what was going to happen. I like Rucka's writing and I've been a huge fan of Black Magick since it came out, and I also know that shit has been fucking crazy for that past year. That could very well be why this felt like a bunch of filler. Still, the imagery in this is hauntingly beautiful. The flecks of color on a mostly black and white palate are almost perfection. I can't stop staring at the pages. So, I'm certainly not willing to give up on this title, and I hope that Rucka and the very talented Nicola Scott return soon with more of this story. <--soon being the operative word.

    Okay, first things first: what the bloody shrimping hell is wrong with Rowan's hair?! I mean, what the actual fish?! (view spoiler)[🤮🤮 (hide spoiler)] Moving on and stuff. So this volume was Super Extra Meh (SEM™). A lot things happen, but at the same time nothing really happens. Not in terms of story arc, anyway. We've got people getting it on. A lot. Damn, these people are hornier than a bunch of hyperactive crayfish in heat. And well, you know, good for them and stuff, but it's not really what Okay, first things first: what the bloody shrimping hell is wrong with Rowan's hair?! I mean, what the actual fish?!

We've got people getting it on. A lot. Damn, these people are hornier than a bunch of hyperactive crayfish in heat. And well, you know, good for them and stuff, but it's not really what I'm looking for when I pick up a volume in this series. Then there's Rowan and her supposed depression/identity crisis/whatever. Which is fine. I mean, I never wanted her to be a super strong badass witch/cop 24/7. But having a whole volume with her going all woe is me was a bit too much for me. Especially when her go-to technique to solve her problems is a healthy alcohol and sex regimen. Clichés, anyone? (view spoiler)[🙄🙄 (hide spoiler)] Oh well, I guess it could have been worse. I mean, she could have acted like a complete moron, on top of everything else. Um. Right. Forget I said anything, okay? Right. Moving on. So Rowan isn't really at her best here and the story feels like a whole bunch of nothing, but at least the art and coloring are as scrumptious as ever. And the work on transparency is pretty cool here, too. Another great thing about this volume is that our Very Merry Band of Hellspawns (VMBoH™) is as gloriously delicious as ever. The Cutest Little Girl That Ever Was is at her creepiest loveliest. And, most importantly, my boyfriend the Yummy Dude of the Appetizing Pustules (YDotAP™) is at his yuckiest sexiest: (“At my pleasure,” you say? Oh well, in that case...) Actually, now that I think about it, I wouldn't mind if the next volume focused on the Very Merry Band of Hellspawns instead of their puny human foes. Because let me tell you, the puny humans might be having sex 24/7 and stuff, but the Delightfully Evil Villains really know how to have FUN. See what I mean? P.S. There is a case of Bad French in this volume. Sigh. Why do authors do this? Why? Want to use a foreign language in your story? Fine, go right ahead. But at least show some bloody respect for those who actually speak the language, and have your bloody text checked by a native speaker! Is that too much to ask?! Sure looks like it is (view spoiler)[😤😤 (hide spoiler)] . · Vol. 1: Awakening I ★★★★★ · Vol. 2: Awakening II ★★★★★

    Not sure what to think of the story yet but by Hecate it’s got to be the most visually gorgeous book I’ve ever seen. Not sure what to think of the story yet but by Hecate it’s got to be the most visually gorgeous book I’ve ever seen.

    Enjoy this series though the pace is pretty slow and the creators are taking breaks between arcs. Interested in where they are going but it’s taking too long. Had a hard time recalling where volume 2 left off

    On the cusp of a nine month layoff, we are left with...what, exactly? The art, as always, is gorgeous. The protagonist’s constant refusal to push her own abilities is frustrating, and the story seems to spin in place for issues at a time. Looking forward to the fourth volume (the conclusion?).

    I didn't even expect to ever get any extra issues for this extraordinary comic book, so just getting to read a single new page of Black Magick felt delightful. Rowan's lack of ability to express her own feelings and needs felt to me like the main engine of this volume. This inability is frustrating, not only in the context of the storytelling but also for the reader themselves. She's as magnetic as she was when I started reading this comic some years ago.

Rowan's lack of ability to express her own feelings and needs felt to me like the main engine of this volume. This inability is frustrating, not only in the context of the storytelling but also for the reader themselves. She's as magnetic as she was when I started reading this comic some years ago. She drags you into her noir world but she refuses to let the reader get to really know her at any point. It's intriguing as it's catchy. It's a complicated game to be played by Greg Rucka, but he comes successfully out of it most of the time. This third volume feels a little bit too slow for the first couple of issues, not because it lacks direction, but the opposite: because there are too many pieces to be set and characters to be followed. Not to mention that for some readers it had been like two years since we were in touch with the story. But once the plot is set on its track, it moves inexorably towards delightful entertainment. Apart from that, there are no words to describe the excellent word of Nicola Scott. She's simply superb, like in every single page she had already drawn for Black Magick. One can spend an entire night only enjoying the artwork of any of these issues. Now, one can only hope that Black Magick returns, as Rucka and Scott promise, next year. And that it does with a clear purpose to provide a conclusion worthy of such a memorable story.

    While not as coherent a story arc as the previous two TBP, it was still creepy, clever, and definitely intriguing

    After really enjoying volume 1, and loving volume 2, volume 3 kept bringing me terrific comic book snacks to wolf down. Let's start with the art - some of the best I've seen in a comic book. The mood it conveys is beautiful, slightly otherworldly and lush, but also delivers on that fantasy element in comics where all the main characters are super-hot and frequently nekked (or half-nekked). Happy days. But then, something nasty crops up and it's really fucking creepy. Genuinely a bit unsettling.

I found myself caring about the characters - even though they are not, honestly, that well-rounded. That might bother some but it didn't matter for me. It's a cool fantasy crime horror comic and the level of depth was fully enjoyable. This volume came out a few months back and at the time of writing there don't appear to be any issues out beyond what is included in this volume. Fingers crossed there is soon. It's another win for Rucka (Lazarus/Stumptown) and a huge one for Nicola Scott. I read a short interview with her about this and she really wanted to explore more technique than they pencils she's usually busy with at DC so I hope she's happy with it. Great.

    Another excellent part of this comic collection This volume of Black Magick deals with Rowan’s development, both mystical and romantic, as she is confronted by challenges and opportunity. The other main characters are further developed as the plot rotates around events in this and in preceding volumes. It’s still a visual treat and the story isn’t bad either. I’m looking forward to the second part of the plot, whenever it emerges from the creative team’s talent.

    I don't like what I see happening to Rowan (she and Morgan haven't talked in months; she distracts herself with her new partner to deaden the pain) but what forges heroines more than obstacles to surmount? I hope Rowan gets over her self-denial and emotional constipation soon. Beautiful illustrative art by Nicola Scott as usual!

    In previous issues we see how it all started, now we see where it is going. Rowan Black is being attacked, but the worst part is that the attack is not physical, they are after her psyche, and that's more dangerous. She is very strong and capable, but she has no real defense for what is going on. The art is consistent and the story is moving nicely. I can't wait to see and read more about what is going on and finally see what Ro is really capable of. In previous issues we see how it all started, now we see where it is going.
