really liked it
Read in May, 2007

While Volume 2 was a substantially better than Volume 1, Volume 3: The Year of the Bastard is really more of the same, in a good way. In Volume 2 Spider Israel (the spectacularly-named main character) and his world matured and came into their own. Volume 3 is essentially, More Adventures of Spider Israel.
Having said that, it is a terrific amount of fun. Mostly the plot follows Spider's investigation on the impending presidential elections, which he does in delightful Spider-fashion. He also experiments with drugs that 'give me the stamina of a young werewolf, the vision of a shaman, the thoughts of a serial killer and the gentleness of a hungry vampire bat.' Good times are had by all.
