Finally! We get some answers to so many questions in There’s Nothing There #3. Reading issues 1 and 2 have me almost confused as Reno. Luckily, Reno gets a lead from an otherworldly source. The chase for clues begins. First, who are all these people hiding around in the shadows?
It’s been a downward spiral for Reno since the beginning of this series. Drugs, orgies, and paparazzi aren’t helping. Her closest friends are doing what they can, but it isn’t enough.They must call upon a strong force that could bend the will of any man and woman, Reno’s mom. Yes, Reno’s mom is your typical rich, “get what I want”, “my marriage is too long”, kind of woman. Not gonna lie, I like her character. I like all these characters honestly. They are the stereotypical rich kids scenario. However, they have decent personalities. Reno, Celia, Kyle, Judy, and Reno’s mom are a bunch that is nice to read about. Their interactions give us some funny moments and dialogue.
Patrick Kindlon is finally moving this story along. We have the name of the antagonist and who these ghosts are. Also, there are still these groups of people that will eventually have a bigger impact on the series. If you have questions like I had, then keep going with this series. Kindlon is working it out, and issue #3 is the beginning of that. Even though issue #3 answers some questions, Kindlon throws in some new mystery. As long as the story progresses at a good pace, then There’s Nothing There will continue to be on my list of recommendations.
Maria Llovet’s art is not something I will get used to. In no way is it bad art, but it’s very loose. The large ink strokes are everywhere and the art is loose. It’s not so bad when you get into the book. Llovet’s art sort of fits in the book, so I can deal with it. Looking at it, it kinda reminds me of fashion sketches with the way some characters are posed. Moreover, Maria Llovet’s art is still clear and you can still see what’s going on. She gets a pass in my book.
There’s Nothing There #3 may earn a spot on my growing list of Black Mask Studios books to support.
