Book Title: Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal #3
Book Description: In Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal #2 we saw Marjorie’s sister, Harriet, closing in on our antihero and getting ready to make an arrest. Before that can happen Marjorie jumped to another time.
Unfortunately for Marjorie, her time traveling pal Tim wasn’t available to compute the jump. As a result the third issue begins with Marjorie in a free fall in one time period while Harriet is arguing with Tim in another.
Harriet convinces Tim that Marjorie will be dead without his help. She wasn’t wrong. Tim catches up with Marjorie just in time to keep her from ending her free fall with a sudden impact on a New York City sidewalk.
Now that they’re reunited Marjorie wants to plan the next heist with Tim. Tim is trying to explain to her that Harriet put a tracker on him and could be there any time. On queue, we see Harriet ordering a drink at the bar.
Once Marjorie spots Harriet a Scooby-Doo type of chase ensues as the girls go up and down the timeline, changing history as they move along. That continues until Harriet ends up running into a huge lizard.
Whilst we’re talking about changing history, we get more of an idea what Satan and Marjorie’s ex have been up to. As it turns out, there are loopholes that allow minor changes to be written into fixed moments in time. This promises to be fun.

This series continues to be fun and light hearted. It’s Harley Quinn with fewer inhibitions and the ability to time travel. With the seemingly random points in time we end up at I wonder if Mr. Ennis had a roadmap to the story or if he made it up as he went along. That’s what makes this one so much fun. The entire book is “Anything can happen Thursday”.
The cover artwork is detailed, fun, and (most importantly) relevant to the story. It’s nice having a cover that isn’t the comic book equivalent of click bait.
The interior artwork is rock solid. It maintains a balance of being detailed yet whimsical. It’s one of the fun things about this title.
At this point I’m almost halfway through the series and I’m loving it. As a geek on a budget I would recommend waiting for the TPB if you haven’t been picking up Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal as it comes out. You will save a few bucks and have the bonus of being able to binge read it instead of getting it in monthly installments. Enjoy! You’re in for a treat!
