This is only the third installment of this amazing series by Gabby Rivera and Royal Dunlap. I feel like an issue hasn’t come out in a long time and I was very excited to get my hands on this and finally find out what’s next for b.b. free. This comic keeps you hooked. If the story isn’t driving you crazy and making you want more then the art and colors keep you pining for more of Rivera’s twist of a fractured United States. Every issue exposes a little but also forms a slew of new questions. It’s equally satisfying and exasperating. In this specific issue, you finally get to see Chulita kick some ass, which is awesome seeing as she’s wheelchair-bound and there’s a stigma that comes with a wheelchair that this comic obliterates. This series does a great job of giving you 2 incredibly strong female characters who go against every societal norm you can think of. This issue hits the ground running, literally, starting exactly where issue 2 ended. It continues b.b. and Chulita’s race to catch the boys responsible for trying to pump water out of their swamp. b.b. free discovers a secret about her past she’s determined to get answers to. The boys they were chasing find themselves in the company of a very mysterious and suspicious character. Ending on another crazy cliffhanger, b.b. finds herself in another precarious situation. This 12 issue series has the potential to appeal to so many different audiences. With the release of this third issue, which will be available on March 11th, we can already see that b.b. free’s world is inevitably going to get bigger and I am very excited to see what this fantastic creative team has in store for us.
Be sure to pick up b.b free #3 at your local comic book stores on March 11th for a cover price of $3.99. You can also find b. b. free #3 along with previous issues digitally on Comixology or by visiting Boom! Studios website.
