Sheltered #3



Comic series


Release date

September 4, 2013
It’s chilling to see a clearly sociopathic teen like Lucas justify murder with such cold-blooded and faulty logic, but the real horror comes after reading the comic book, when one realizes that the same “it’s either us or them” attitudes and poorly considered approaches to the task of intelligence-gathering satirized in the book is in play all around us.
4 out of 5 stars
Brisson's spare approach to storytelling borders on McCarthy-esque. The reader receives only what is needed and nothing more. Hailey and Victoria's story of survival nests inside (is sheltered by) the overarching narrative about the survivors of a survivalist compound; it's a smart move by Brisson and adds depth and scale to an otherwise small canvas. I suspect this nesting instinct to expand to other characters until morale improves which should occur the first of never.

Sheltered continues to be a must-read series. Brisson and Christmas make the story even scarier by the fact that this could actually happen.
4 out of 5 stars
Sheltered has really had a remarkable start and the cliffhanger this issue ends which assures us next issue things will get interesting. Christmas and Chankahamma make a great artistic duo and when you throw in an engaging story with well developed characters from Brisson and you really have an engaging series. As the old saying goes, “the plot thickens,” and who doesn’t like a thick plot?
4 out of 5 stars
SHELTERED is a chilling exploration of the means by which isolation and fear can push a group to the brink of insanity, and for now, that scenario is more frightening than an uncertain end-times.

“Sheltered” #3 gets the heart of its readers racing. As the “Sheltered” series steers into “Lord of the Flies” territory, we’re soon going to see how far these teenagers have fallen into the dark side of human nature.
Ed Brisson, Johnnie Christmas and company have brought a world that sucks me in with the story and art. As each page progresses it leaves me with a sinking feeling that the kids are not alright.
