More thoughtful and less charged than the first two Crow stories. Iris is a more conflicted character than Eric or Joshua, though no less driven in her revenge, just more scalpel and less shotgun in focus. The external themes of the story--freedom, family, and government--play a bigger role in the story, making it a fuller and richer read.
Iris Shaw, like all characters who are brought back by a crow, was killed tragically by radicals who are not willing to submit to their government. She is brought back in order to get vengeance on those who killed her and her unborn baby. And she does in three simple chapters.

The book's awesome, but I finished it in one sitting; you may want to buy this used and cheap rather than paying full price because in the end you may feel it's not worth it.

I suppose what made me like the book - as most p

Edición española de The Crow: Flesh & Blood, de James Vance y Alex Maleev. Último tomo de los tres sobre el personaje publicados por Norma Editorial.
had the coolest crow avatar i ever seen so far but the story didnt really follow the rule of crow and resscuation(sp) which means one came back to be united with loved one again period it usually mean mission of vengeful wrath... not the case in this story, get this only at discounted price....

Really enjoyed this, subtle tale of revenge within the crow universe this time the crow brings back a woman. Dark yet beautiful black and white illustrations and a simple yet passionate tale keep this flowing along nicely.
Philip Church
this was a great story. i wish they would make this into a film; i believe it would be an intense movie if they stuck with the story line in the book.
I remember loving this when it came out, but I will have to read it again. I am sure I will still love that art, though.
