Unstoppable Wasp #3 is an action-packed issue that finds the Agents of G.I.R.L fighting for their lab against the forces of A.I.M.

It’s a fast-moving issue that doesn’t leave the reader waiting long for the fighting to start. The friendship and affection between the Agents of G.I.R.L gives the book needed emotional stakes and tension. You don’t want anything bad to happen to any of Nadia’s friends and peers.

Nadia’s usually bubbly personality is soured somewhat (and understandable so) by the threat on her friends’ lives.

A.I.M has a pair of new allies that may surprise the readers quite a bit. One came from Avengers Academy years ago, and the other may be coming from within G.I.R.L itself!

This is just a fast and fun issue, so there’s not a lot more to dissect in terms of story, truth be told.

Gurihiru’s artwork continues to impress. It’s anime and manga-inspired style suits the energetic and youthful energy of Nadia and her allies. The action sequences are kinetic and viscerally enjoyable to boot, and the color palette is absolutely bursting with bright shades, even in the night and darker settings of this issue.

Unstoppable Wasp #3 is another fun and energetic installment of Nadia van  Dyne’s science-themed adventures. She and her friends confront A.I.M once again, and it’s an action-packed confrontation fraught with danger. This one is worth a recommendation. Check it out.

Unstoppable Wasp #3 comes to us from writer Jeremy Whitley, artist Gurihiru, letterer VC’s Joe Caramagna, and cover artist Stacey Lee.
