Synopsis: Crane’s quest takes him across the Himalayas and into a sunken temple in the Indian Ocean, where he battles pirates and great white sharks to find clues about the missing scroll. But the evil lying in wait is getting stronger.
Review: Prodigy continues to entertain with its mix action and adventure with a touch of conspiracy theory thrown in.
Crane and Rachel wind up in the Himalayas and head into a sunken temple in the middle of the Indian Ocean where Crane discovers more information about the missing scroll, but also figures out the origins of The Brotherhood Of The Dragan.
Rafael Albuquerque’s art in this issue is absolutely epic. By the time we reach page 7 were treated to an epic train wreck which sees Crane and Rachel pretty much mid-air trying to find purchase somewhere.
By the time we hit page 20 we see Crane under the water exploring an ancient temple while he is being stalked by a group of sharks.
The artist’s eye for detail is fantastic. I loved the attention that was paid to the ancient writings on the wall of the ruins that Crane was exploring while under the water.
This is a great third issue, which gives us more background into Edison Crane and shows him to not only be exceptionally clever and a risk taker but also reveals him to be very much a humane sort of character who is quite happy to try and set people onto a better path.
There’s a nice moment in this issue where one of Crane’s associates tells Rachel how they met. We also get another nice moment where Crane literally talks to thugs out of killing him and Rachel by telling them that there is a better way.
Overall. I’m really liking where this is going and hoping to learn a little more about The Brotherhood of The Dragan in the next issue.
