In Review: Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Dog Men #3

Having barely survived a confrontation with one group of supernatural predators, Harry must now face a swarm of wholly different beasts in the deep wilderness.

Synopsis: Having barely survived a confrontation with one group of supernatural predators, Harry must now face a swarm of wholly different beasts in the deep wilderness. The stakes? Solving the murders that brought him to Mississippi in the first place, the lives of hundreds of innocents, and averting all-out war with a mysterious government agency!

Review: Mark Powers run on Dresden Files continues and this issue is packed full of funny referential quips to both Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

Picking up from where last issue left off. Harry and Listens To Wind head into the forest in order to make contact with the Dog Men and hopefully warn them of an impending attack from some Government types.

As always the shit hits the fan and things only go from bad to worse when Harry’s dog Mouse is attacked by the Dog Men.

Much of this issue sees Harry taking a back seat as Listens To Wind does his magical thing in attempting to communicate with the Dog Men. The reason being that he as senior council member is more qualified.

The art in this issue by Diego Galindo is pretty cool. I enjoyed his use of shading for much of the forest scenes, but where it gets really impressive is the actual reveal of the Dog Men.

The action when things kick off is visceral and I have to admit to having felt bad for Harry’s Dog Mouse being attacked and hugely out classed by some giant Dog Men.

As stated above. I really enjoyed the quips with regards to Star Wars and Indiana Jones. There is a particularly fun Yoda reference toward the end of the issue, which refers to Listens To Wind’s status and how the Alpha views him.

The issue closes with an appropriate cliffhanger, but given what you’ll witness in the pages leading up to it. You’ll likely wonder how long it will take for the Government types to realise that their mission is futile.
