REVIEW: Kaiju Score: Steal From the Gods #3
Book Title: Kaiju Score: Steal From the Gods #3
Book Description: In “Kaiju Score: Steal From the Gods” we’ve seen that even after the successful heist in Florida, life didn’t get any easier for Michelle. Shortly after completing it, someone put a hit out on Michelle and her team. They’ve already killed one member. Michelle and company can buy out the contracts on them. That requires much more money than they currently have so they need another big payday. They get the opportunity when a job in Russia turns up. The job in Russia makes what happened in Florida look like a cakewalk. The team must infiltrate the deepest levels of a Russian base. Once there, they must go inside the belly of a great kaiju, Prodathu, and steal the Aztec gold from a ship this beast centuries ago. When we get to the third installment of the series we see the team manages to infiltrate the base. They even get the gold. That’s when they get hit with a surprise that they may not live to talk about.

We all know one or two people that never seem to be able to catch a break. Sometimes it’s self inflicted. Sometimes it’s purely a case of bad luck. Michelle is one of those people.
While easy isn’t the adjective I’d choose to describe this job, it was going perfectly. The team was 15 minutes away from being free and clear. Now they’re forced to be in survival mode. I must say Mr. Patrick threw a very good curveball at as.
I have come to enjoy Rem Broo’s artwork in this series immensely. Whether it’s the highlighted character that gets to be the focus of an issue, a kaiju that is ready to destroy anything in its path, or an elaborate Russian base, Broo is always up to the task.
“Kaiju Score: Steal From the Gods” continues to be one of the titles I am most excited to see on new comic book day. As a geek on a budget I highly recommend this series. It has action, drama, and a certain level of humor that you just don’t find very often.
