The series still isn't living up to the promise of the first five issues, but it's not bad, either. I still like Moore's art, though he's replaced by John Lucas on a few issues here, and while John isn't bad, he does do a lot of weird face-lines, though not as bad as Liefeld. Hawthorne also takes over penciling duties a few times, and while he's competent, I miss Moore.

Oliver keeps trying to make the series more absurd, but it doesn't feel that original. He's brought in evil rapist neo-nazis, ju

Disclaimer: never read any previous volume. Wasn't really intriguing enough to keep me engaged. Plus, bad punctuation really killed it for me.

Vol. 3 is a wonderful addition to this series. It maybe my favorite, so far, but without the first two volumes that wouldn't be possible. This volume is all about the characters past, how their past can show up in their present, and what they will do to protect their future. Oliver's writing is deep with multiple layers. Like a great magician he will direct your attention one way and then completely amaze you. This book is nicely wrapped up on the last page and left me wanting more. I can't wait ...more

I had no idea when I bought this (at liquidation prices) that it was book three - I just noticed the wonderfully creepy roaches on the cover, and decided I'd risk my buck and a quarter (again, liquidation . . .) and now, I am hooked. I want to know where these characters have come from, and where they are going. I'm going to have to scour my local comic and half price bookstores, and hope I can find books 1, 2, 4 and 5

Got books one and two then re-read this one 2/18/2012

The continuing adventures of the Bug-Bee-Gone crew. This volume hinted at an origins reveal session. Saloth has connections to the Khmer Rouge killing fields. Mrs. Perez recounts childhood fears. Most revealing, though, is Henry's connection to Cleo Crone, the San Fernando Fuhrer. We learn more about his time in prison and now it's coming back to rue. Add in some further disgustingly brilliant art work and this was another enjoyable read.

I think I would have liked it more if it weren't for John Logan's artwork, which is kind of terrible. It's almost like sub-Michael Turner/J. Scott Campbell stuff, and really ruined the experience of reading the book, especially when compared to Tony Moore's superior pencils. On the other hand, the story in this one did feel a bit unfocused, and was a bit of a step down from the first two volumes. Overall, though, I'm still intrigued enough to keep reading until the end.

The story continues to move along at a nice clip, though it is getting weirder by the page. The whole mythos behind the bugs/uprising is really developing well and I am looking forward to where the author takes this.
