Skyward, Vol. 3: Fix the World by Joe Henderson
◆ ◆ ◆ ◇ ◇
*Published August 27, 2019*
The last in the Skyward series, we see what happens when the Willa is able to figure out all that her father wanted her to know and what it means for everyone else in the world. As Willa makes her way to Kansas City, she learns a little more than she planned on.
Willa’s faced terrifying storms, giant man-eating bugs, a deadly rebellion and a whole lot of heartbreak but nothing can prepare her for this. It’s time for Willa to fulfill her father’s last request. Time to fix the world. But a revelation will rock Willa to her core and test her in ways she never imagined possible.
SKYWARD VOL. 3 collects issues 11-15 of the hit ongoing series from writer JOE HENDERSON (showrunner of Netflix’s LUCIFER) and artist LEE GARBETT (LUCIFER, LOKI: AGENT OF ASGARD).
I do believe that my review over on Goodreads sums up this last volume really well.
Okay, this series was really good, but it felt like it ended far to quickly and far to easily. I love that Willa figures out what her father wanted her to find in Kansas City, I love that Willa was able to figure out how to save Chicago from the farmers that were coming to take over it. And while I truly love all of these features, everything was really rushed in the fast chapters of this series. So, while an excellent series, the ending wasn’t as satisfying as I thought it could be.
The only thing that I would end is that I truly wished we could have explored the ideas of the Earth losing gravity and what that actually meant for the people and the animals of the world. We got some idea of what it meant for the people in Chicago, and it was somewhat terrifying but also something I would like to experience. Granted, giant bugs are not my forte, but I’d just say in the city. But I would like to see more of the world this story is a part of. What does it mean for the Earth to lose the majority of its gravity?
