The often confusing nature of the story highlights the elements of paranoia and conspiracy that are central to the plot. The writing continues to be strong, rarely wasting a word while creating an atmosphere of tension. Characters continue to be developed in surprising ways.
Interspersed in volume 3 are dossiers on enemy agents. I particularly liked The Ice Men, who have been trained to die just by willing death. Not really a superpower I would want, but useful if you're captured and want to avoid torture.
I also liked the use of Philip K. Verve, a disturbed writer of science fiction, as a character. Given that others have fittingly compared some aspects of this story to the work of Philip K. Dick, the character is appropriate.
The art continues to grow on me. Its sketchiness and the washed-out watercolors suit the mood of a story that always leaves the reader wondering whether the memories and experiences of various characters are real or ... just a sketch that might be filled in later.
The book starts with a series of clever recipe cards for explosives and ricin laced sweet tea, then zooms in on what seems like domestic bliss. Sort of bliss. There are some missing valuables and a kleptomaniacal housewife is accused. She has her own way of silencing her accusers.
We then move back to Henry Lyme and Meru. We learn that Meru and the Eraser both grew up loving books. We see Lyme's regret at his attempts to woo and recruit Meru. The Eraser eventually falls in love and marries an author whose name seems familiarly to be Philip K. Dick, an author that would seem to be an inspiration for this mindbending series. Teams are recruited but it seems like it's all building up to something later. Not much happened here, but it happens in typical Kindt Mind MGMT style.
I loved the suburban magazine parodies as well as the recipe cards. The tips and tricks embedded on the edges of the page are always a welcome sight in this series. There is what your eye first sees, then what it further sees, seeming to illustrate the plot line further to the reader. My favorite is still the first volume, but I look forward to future volumes of this series. The characters are complex and the story line is complex and trippy.
