The GeeksverseSuicide Girls #3

Suicide Girls #3
Published on Friday, June 24, 2011 by

Either it is cold in nearly every scene or these Suicide Girls are excited about the dilemma that they find themselves in in Suicide Girls #3. This is an exposition heavy issue which flashes back to the end of issue #2, reading stiffly, it would read even stiffer in a trade paperback recovering much of what has already been given. This issue does try to unravel the brain manipulation sci-fi being used by the dominant religious fanatics to sway the unruly.

Brain wave scanners and twisted scientists, pitted against the nearly constantly topless force for resistance: Suicide Girls.

The nipples in this issue can distract from a few problems in the flow of the comic. The Suicide Girls, at home after the foiled raid, start in a posh swingers living room but then shift into a storage unit. Were they concerned about being overheard? If they think the tracking device is in one of the girls then moving around the compound seems pointless.

Another problem is that the mad scientist keeps one of the capture girls stripped down while he views her sleaziest memories. I suppose that should show how he is funded by the conservative program but not necessarily part of the controlling group. It just seems like more gratuitous T&A. One or two more sets of boobs either way don’t make the book automatically more successful. Although I do like the design on the mad scientist.

The corporate religious oppressive conservative group has been revealed to be less than sincere in the last issues but seems like a nice foil to the Suicide Girls. It is hard to take a feminist stance in this book, although it is clearly trying to show, like the website, women empowered through control of their own bodies and images.

I have a few concerns about the dialogue, shifting background spaces, and a few logical concerns. That said, why isn’t this the highest selling book at IDW? This is still full on topless G.I. Joe vs Orwell’s 1984! That is still excellent. This issue does try to unravel the brain manipulating mystery at the core of this series.

Three covers including a retail incentive photo cover and another comic store exclusive cover. Behind the main story is a two page Suicide Girl pirate story and a Cameron Stewart pinup gallery.

The comic can be ordered directly from the comic inspiring SuicideGirls website along with their other books, comics, and DVDs. The comic can also be found at your local comic book shop. One size fits all. Discuss the comic on the KittysPryde Forum.
