Silk Spectre issues #1 and #2 were only leading up to this point in the story, and here we begin to build up to the finale. The story (and art) becomes so suddenly stunning that it makes me wish this was a 6-parter rather then 4.

This issue has a slow and somewhat irritating beginning, but it pushes past that and ties back into the Watchmen characters and lifestyle.

Darwyn Cooke renders Silk Spectre utterly true to her character.
In Watchmen, she is the least developed and the most whiny, but Cooke

Trippy to mature. Issue three of Silk Spectre builds up the character of Laurie as the Silk Spectre that we are familiar with in Watchmen. The Comedian is here and Darwyn Cooke's interpretation of the character is way better than Azzarello's.

The Comedian's smiley pin gets its bittersweet backstory in this issue.

You know why the Comedian always wears that smiley pin? Perhaps he is the comedian. Or perhaps, it is dear to him, reminding him of someone.

And then there was that time Laurie tripped and started talking like Delirium from Sandman (a character I'd much rather be reading about). And her pet bird's skeleton started talking and said the best line in a Watchmen comic ever: "Sorry doesn't disperse the birdseed, you twat." And also a cameo by...Frank Sinatra as portrayed by Toby Jones?

Also, nudity. Just a lot of nudity. And more heavy-handed cramming-in of Comedian symbols. Just in case Laurie's background is still a mystery to anyone re

The art is very enjoyable, 60s psychedelic stuff is always fun....but the plot/story of the arc so far is not as enthralling as i expected. The first few issues were rough, but issue 3 it is improving, so where is #4????

Laurie is boring but the Comedian stirs things up. He also gets his symbol. He saved this one from being terrible.

Nobody does Acid Trips like Amanda Conner, well worth reading for the opening section alone.
