really liked it

Volume 3 loses some of the momentum of previous books, with each issue focusing on flashbacks to flesh out the backgrounds of various characters. These characters needed more fleshing out, so it's good to get to know more about them. Also, the issues about the robots characters are particularly clever. But like season two of Lost -- when it took many episodes to resolve a single, short event -- this book doesn't do much to resolve the cliffhangers from Volume 2.

Of course, it's hard to nitpick a book that looks this good. Nguyen's watercolors shine once more, transporting the reader to a fully envisioned sci-fi universe. And Lemire continues to do a great job mixing action, humor and the bittersweet.

Just don't come into this one expecting much progression of the main plot.
