And Then I Read: THE ROYALS 3

There aren’t many surprises in this issue, rather the story is playing out as one might expect from the first two. The super-powered royal princes of England, Henry and Arthur, have joined the American fleet in the Pacific at the island of Midway to take on the Japanese navy. Japan has super-powered royals too, and as seen on the cover, not ones to be taken lightly. Henry continues to try his best to do what’s right, Arthur continues to be a most horrible human being who also enjoys the killing of wartime and the impunity his powers give him. Their sister Rose continues to be somewhere between, or perhaps just enigmatic. Not bad. The script by Williams is harrowing, the art by Coleby is somewhat uneven at times, but generally effective.

Recommended.
