Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods #3 finds the battle heating up on two fronts. Billy Batson receives some sudden assist to flee his Olympian jail, and Surprise Lady takes up arms in Washington D.C.

Is It Good?

Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods #3 stumbles a bit for one of many final vestiges (in title solely) of the Lazarus Planet occasion. Nothing is inherently flawed with this situation, nevertheless it largely serves as a transition level. In different phrases, the characters are moved into place for the finale, so not loads of story substance takes place.

When final we left Surprise Lady and Shazam, Shazam’s powers had been almost drained away by the Wizard, and Surprise Lady sneakily escaped confinement with the assistance of Hecate and an Asgardian squirrel(?). Now, Hecate and Yara Flor step in to free Shazam from his jail cell whereas Surprise Lady’s allies collect to battle in opposition to the Military of Olympus close to the Washington Monument.

Oh, and the hoodie man’s id is revealed. It is a shock, however not a stunning shock, if that is smart. With out spoiling it, take into consideration which god-like character is most prevalent in Surprise Lady’s historical past, and you will in all probability guess who it’s.

What’s nice about this situation? It seems like all of the characters are transferring towards a selected second. Wilson does not infuse the story with something resembling momentum, however the fellowship is beginning to gel. There’s some motion, which appears to be like nice, and the character designs (together with Surprise Lady’s “god” armor) are fairly cool.

Take a look at our Video Evaluate of Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods #3

What’s not nice about this situation? For the penultimate situation in a 4-part story, there is a distinct lack of momentum and emotional power. The dialog, in spots, is downright picket. Surprisingly, the worst dialog comes from Surprise Lady throughout her most susceptible moments. Billy Batson’s incessant self-berating over how a lot worse of a hero he’s in comparison with Mary is irritating and pointless. And general, the battle feels small since you do not see how the gods’ assault impacts the world.

Concerning the artwork, it is nice. Regardless of the additional assistance on pencils/inks (all the time a yellow flag), the standard of artwork is great. The traces are clear, the coloring pops, and the motion is attention-grabbing.

After which there’s the backup…

Divine Intervention

A military of the undead invades the shore of Themyscira, resulting in a battle between Nubia’s Amazonian military and Hades’s never-ending zombie hordes.

Sounds implausible, proper? The premise is unimaginable, however the execution is flatly paced and downright uninteresting. It reads like a low-cost, off-off-off Broadway play with overly flowery dialog, picket character performing, and mediocre artwork. This backup can be higher obtained if some revelation or huge shock popped as much as improve the primary story, however the vital improvement right here (a number of the gods should not on board with the invasion) falls far wanting fascinating.

Bits and Items:

Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods #3 is a setup situation that strikes the gamers into place for the massive finale. Nothing new or thrilling on this situation that you simply did not already know, so it is a serviceable addition to the arc. Additionally, the backup is uninteresting and pointless.
