Wizardwood meets goth-manga…

The personal touches in vol. 3, it turns out, are the development of story arc rather than just being personal touches, and we find out for certain this whole thing is keyed to Di and Vi, with Edaniel and Edrear as supporting characters (plus, one assumes, the other two gate guardians eventually). This one is more character-based than action-based, which is never a bad thing, and LeGrow pushes the series to new heights here; this is getting really good, like early-issues-of-Bleach-level good. ****
