Cry Havoc #3 Review
Cry Havoc #3
Writer: Simon Spurrier
Cover: Ryan Kelly and Emma Price, Si Gane (variant)

Things are going to get rough for Louise the longer she stays with the monster she was meant to kill. The mission in Afghanistan seemed pretty simple from the start, but nothing is ever as it seems. I would hate to be in Louise’s hoes in any time of her life. Yes, she has a monster living inside her, but some of the others like her are just to brutal to even connect with. When you have those kind of people trying to pull out the beast inside you, who is really safe?
Speaking of Afghanistan, tensions are rising between Louise and the other soldiers like her. Maybe its the war, maybe its their personalities. Maybe its the idea of who is really the savages. The enemy or them? Back in London, the relationships and finances are being strained. Now in the hands of a person that could kill her or keep her alive. On top of all that, somebody’s pregnant! What’s a girl to do?
I am so glad that the stories can be kept separate through the colors used. I think its a fun storytelling strategy in a way. Spurrier and Kelly pull no punches in keeping this book brutal, but with a solid story. I would like to see some character development with the other soldiers like Louise. Just to see where they come from. Louise is definitely changing and that’s good to see. Nothing seems repetitive and the story lines continue to flow. However, I feel like it may get stagnant with no real dynamic point in sight. I hope I am happily proved wrong.
