Lowlifes #3

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Artist: Alexis Sentenac

Grand gets to work getting Wendell his money as well as finding out who robbed him. Using legal, and of course illegal, ways of getting information, Grand works his way closer and closer to squaring away his part of the deal with Wendell. However he’s about to find out something that is gonna make things a heck of a lot more complicated.

When I first started to read this issue I thought, ok this is gonna be the ho hum issue. The issue that doesn’t stand out or reveal any shocking revelation or anything like that, but I am happy to say that by the end of this issue, I was completely and totally wrong. Buccellato once again delivers a knockout story with an angle you won’t see coming at all, and you’ll think to yourself how in the back did I miss that. At this point Buccellato has taken away any moral compass that Grand had, and what we are left with is a man on a mission, plain and simple. He wasn’t a complete moral man to start with, but it’s plain to see that whatever morality Grand had is quickly going out the window. I know I keep on mentioning the realism and grittiness of this story, but I can’t help but highlight the cornerstones of the story. It’s a story that has grabbed tightly to the readers and has not let go since the first panel, and I love it.

Sentenac’s art continues to amaze and astonish me. How Sentenac has portrayed the characters up to this point has been some of the best art I have personally seen. The expressions, the emotions, the realism, the use of color, the shading everything it just looks great plain and simple.

With the conclusion coming next issue, I can’t wait to see what this highly talented creative team has in store for us.
