Aron Warners Pariah Issue #3 Review

Pariah Issue #3 by Aron Warner
Illustrations: Brett Weldele
Writer: Philip Gelatt

Robert Maudsley knows what makes us tick. He knows what people want, need, hate and love. He can use that knowledge to get us so do whatever he wants, no matter how dangerous, immoral or repugnant that might be. Maudsley has no moral compass. He has no compassion. But he’s very curious about how far he can push people and what he can get away with. Maudsley wants to rule the world. Maudsley wants to control us all. Maudsley is 15 years old.

This is the third installment of Aron Warner’s 12-issue comic about a group of super-intelligent teenagers that are being hunted by the government. The first 4 issues are character specific, giving us insight into the life of a Vitro and their fall from grace so to speak. In issue #1 we met Brent Marks, in #2 we met Lila Ellerman and issue #3 introduces us to Robert Maudsley who can influence people to do things. To him people are like pieces in a chess game; he sets something in motion, in this case a bank robbery, and then sits back and watches what happens. He now has plans on a much grander scale, but meets Franklin Hyde, a famous Vitro who has a proposition for Maudsley. Issue #4 will be Franklin’s story.

This issue isn’t as exciting as #2, we are shown Maudsley and his powers, but that is pretty much it. The Maudsley in the comic doesn’t look like the same on the cover, which was shame because the guy on the cover looks intimidating and the one inside isn’t. While this issue wasn't as exciting as the last one, I am still looking forward to seeing where this story is going.
