Stumptown Vol. 3

I'm determined to finish all four Stumptown books currently available before the end of January. Today I finished Vol.3, The Case of the King of Clubs.

Greg Rucka's fan-favorite P.I. is back on the case in this new hardcover! When one of investigator Dex Parios's dearest friends is brutalized following a Portland Timbers match, Dex is determined to get to the bottom of the attack no matter who stands in her way! Join Eisner Award-winner Rucka and new series artist Justin Greenwood (The Fuse) as Dex kicks more than just soccer balls in her pursuit of the assailant.

One big difference is the artwork, which is now done by Justin Greenwood instead of  Mathew Southward. It's as well done as before but the panels are brighter. I would take either in any Stumptown graphic novel.

I enjoyed the story, although I wasn't quite satisfied by the ending. Dex is herself and is drawn pretty much the same. Despite all her faults, she is a loyal friend which drives her in this story.

Still hooked on the graphic novels and the TV show. Looking forward to Volume 4.
