Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #3 Review Short Version: Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #3 works to set up what Amelia’s role in this world will be and – apparently – the answer is a handyman. Beyond that, we get lots of good villainous stuff this issue, building towards what appears to be a conflict between those that can use magic and those that can’t as the distrust builds.
Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #3 Writers: Adam P. Knave and D.J. Kirkbride
Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #3 Artist: Nick Brokenshire
Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #3, finds the eponymous Ms. Cole trying to hide from the authorities after recent run ins with the law and the loss of both of her magic wands. However, her attempts to escape lead her to an unlikely new profession. Still, Amelia’s hero-ing days aren’t over yet in Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #3, as she jumps into action – magic or no magic – after a traffic accident happens in front of her. Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #3 is a setup issue for the series, giving us more time to get familiar with the characters, especially setting out themes of a building political war against magic users. That kind of “outsiders versus us” story is a major one in the history of humanity and makes a ton of sense in the context of Amelia Cole and the Unknown World. At the end of the issue, Amelia *spoilers* finds a trap door, but has no way to open it as yet. The highlight of the issue for me, though, are Amelia’s interactions with her golem that somehow manages to convey more emotion without words than most characters do with them. It’s a great relationship that somehow feels real and connected without anything ever being said between them. Overall, Knave and Kirkbride continue to build an interesting world and Amelia’s new job grounds her a little more in her new world while giving us the chance of having a wider cast of characters in the near future. Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #3 is a fun read in a series that moves Amelia forward and sets of the cast of characters for whatever is coming down the road. It’s available from ComiXology for $1.99 and is thoroughly recommended.
