Bill Willingham strikes again in Warriors Three; he’s an author who continually manages to deliver gripping stories and he’s not disappointing here.

Hot in the trail of the escaped Fenris, the Warriors Three come to an aim outpost that has been recently destoryed only to fight Helen an AIM Scientist who has been imbued with the Great Wolf’s strength. After the requisite fight they ally themselves with her and find out that Fenris has gained the ability to change is shape into whatever he consumes and he is own his way to Asgard to destroy it with a powerful bomb created by AIM.

The story of how the AIM agents freed Fenris really makes the wolf seem like an evil version of Bigby Wolf from Willingham’s long running Fables series, both of them have inherited their father’s ability to shapeshift but had no desire to learn it and need to be assisted by outside means to develop the ability after neglecting it for so long. To do this they feed Fenris an AIM “looser” named Jack, could this be a way for Bigby to get non-canon revenge on Jack of the Tales?

The art is great and Helen or Skadhir as she comes to be named by her Asgarian allies is awesome! Seriously I’ve not been this excited for a new female character since the return of the classic versions of Supergirl and Sider-girl She’s smart, she’s strong and she’s actually given a properly muscled physique to match her power. The men accept her as an equal and even tell her that she will be welcomed in Asgard (thanks to her status as a demi-goddess with her DNA melded with Fenris’)

Honestly this is probably my favourite mini-series in a long time.
