    1. Bullet Review:The artist has changed and I'm not sure I'm keen on the new direction. Also, this volume is way more character driven than earlier volumes, which leads to a bit slower of a story.I LOVE the bit where a character off-handedly mentions that Star Wars EU has been erased.


    2. The choice of new artist for the third Dex 'Kinsey Millhone' Parios case demonstrates with great clarity the direction Rucka is taking this once down and dirty PI series - it's now safe, tame, fluffy, generic etc etc blah blah blah - and that's OK if you want that kind of thing but for me it is clear that the disappointing second volume owed a lot of its depth to artist Matthew Southworth and without him Rucka's insipid story offers nothing to the seasoned crime reader.


    3. A soccer game won by the Vancouver team turns into a tragedy when Dex finds Mercury, a close friend, badly beaten and left in a coma. CK, a supporter from the rival soccer team in Seattle, is also a PI who teams with Dex to find the culprit. Dex is finding it difficult to keep a level head because the assault struck so close to her heart and her friends notice the change in her attitude. As always, the officials warn her to not interfere, but she refuses to let things go. CK doesn't leave her si [...]


    4. Rucka wanders afield from the straight-up detective story here to focus on Dex's problems, friendships, and involvement in the Portland soccer scene. When one of her friends is badly beaten after a game, Dex tries to dig up who's responsible before fan rivalries spark more violence, but her behavior is erratic and hints at PTSD from her heretofore unmentioned military career.It's all good stuff, and new illustrator Justin Greenwood does a solid job, but it feels lightweight. Or, rather, like it [...]


    5. I didn't like this one nearly as much as the previous 2 volumes in this series. It's so Portland-centric, that the story really doesn't resonate that well for outsiders. And the mystery isn't really resolved by the end. Artwork isn't bad and the inclusion of color is a step forward. But the previous volumes had actual mysteries that were solved by detective work and were stories that anyone could relate to. Disappointing.


    6. 3.5 I enjoyed the undercurrent of Portland/ Seattle rivalry here, and that it took a little more time to develop the characters, but the tone occasionally verged on mawkish. Could have used a little more of the humor from the first volume to even things out.


    7. The last volume of Stumptown was amazing. It had witty and humorous dialogue. It even had an incredible action sequence. The same could not be said about this volume, unfortunately. It seemed that more time was spent on developing the town of Portland rather than developing the plot or characters. We do get a chance to take a closer look into Dex's past and how its details may have an impact on where she now is in life.Although this collection ended up being unremarkable, I still enjoyed Rucka's [...]


    8. Well, I expected the third volume to connect volumes one and two, and there was a new artist to work with Rucka, Justin Greenwood's instead of Matt Southworth, so these are adjustments. I liked Southworth's approach better than this somewhat less precise, harder to see expressions approach, but you know, I am getting used to Greenwood's work, and in general I am liking the main character, P.I. Dex Parrios, a lot. And the background and the focus of a long opening of the story was surprising, a P [...]


    9. Ruck continues to write interesting Stumptown books. I barely remembered the characters this time around, but enjoyed quickly being reintroduced to them. The book is really all about the characters — what we learn about them, and how they react. The mystery is pretty minor in comparison, made important only by the importance it has to Dex. I do wish Oni would produce these books as something other than overpriced hardcovers on poor-quality paper, though.


    10. The story here wasn't the strongest in my opinion, but I'm here for the characters. I love Dex's relationship with her brother, Ansel. I also really liked her working with CK in this arc - hoping to see her back again. Nerdy references and panels that make me cry = win.


    11. Both Dex and her Stumptown millieu remain interesting and vibrant, but there are some elements of her character that feel jarringly altered in the switch of artists- she looks more wisened mean girl than wisened tomboy, and for all the limitations of those stereotypes, it still makes a difference to how I perceive Dex.As a soccer fan it was interesting to see the game depicted like this. The team of Rucka and Greenwood did a good job of depicting the action, the crowd noise ( presented as almost [...]


    12. Another chapter in the Stumptown detective stories. We revisit an old nemesis and learn more about Axel and Dex, particularly Dex's background as Dex investigates the harrowing beating of a good friend and fellow Portland Timbers soccer team fan.



    13. I enjoyed the development of December character but investigation side if the story ,less so and the new artist didn't do it as well for me to clean and colorfully.



    14. This felt a little bit padded. Granted, it wasn't too much of a mystery and was more about Dex's reaction to the crime. Art by new guy Greenwood is a little too loose than I usually like.


    15. This wasn't as enjoyable as the first two volumes. Partly because I don't care much for, and do not know a lot about football, which was part of the theme of the story, and partly because I didn't understand whatever was the conclusion to the case itself (what the hell is (view spoiler)[scalping (hide spoiler)]? Even after googling it I still don't understand it. I am spoilering the word in case it could be a spoiler to other people, although I'm not sure. Sorry, non-native english speaker, etc, [...]


    16. This was a big disappointment. I like Rucka's work, including the previous STUMPTOWN volumes, but this stuff just didn't measure up. The characters are, for the most part, well-developed, and you get a lot of detail about the Portland soccer scene; but it's just not thrilling or interesting enough make you care.**SPOILERS FORTHCOMING.**I like Greenwood's work here, and like his other work, he makes good use of "camera" placement. He also brings a detail of expression that's not often achieved in [...]


    17. If I was unbiased, this should really just get a 4-star rating as it isn't as good as the first two volumes of Stumptown, in my opinion. However, my soccer fandom pulls up the rating for me, so this gets the full 5 stars instead.


    18. I love Portland and I love Greg Rucka's Dex Paraios stories. So happy that I got this this week from my local public library! This particular story focuses on a part of Portland I'm aware of (how could I not?) but not entirely familiar with - the Timbers Army, the local groups that support our local MLS team, the Portland Timbers. The story and art unfold like a proper noir tale, with the detective getting too close to the edge, authority figures warning her away, and unexpected connections to s [...]


    19. Still enjoying this series and the development of Dex Parios and the other characters. This volume seems less story-driven (compared to the first two) and more about the atmosphere around the football (soccer) games. It's interesting to see an American experience of football and how it compares to the football culture here in Britain.I really liked Matthew Southworth's art in the first two volumes. The change to Justin Greenwood and Ryan Hill in this volume takes some slight getting used to but [...]


    20. I picked this up randomly at the library one afternoon, and fell right into the story. It is of course fantastic to read something so grounded in my city--I'm not a sports fan, but I sure know some members of the Timbers Army and can't wait to pass this book on to them. I enjoyed the characters and most of the plot, although I was a bit confused at the resolution of the central mystery until she spelled it out later. I went back and put the first two books in the series on hold!


    21. While still quite good and enjoyable, this volume departs significantly from the previous two Stumptown yarns. Instead of a straight-up mystery, the focus is more on Dex's personal life, her relationships, and her past. Also, football. Not American football, but proper football in America.While I liked Justin Greenwood's art, it just doesn't feel Stumptown the way Matt Southworth's did. That may simply be a case of Southworth coming first, but it affected my reading nevertheless.


    22. One of Dex's friends gets beaten up after a soccer game and she goes FUCKING CRAZY over it. Anger is not at all a pretty emotion and she shows that quite thoroughly. She actually carries a GUN this time. She is pissed off hardcore.We get more of her backstory too and it's quick and simple, what you would expect.I'd have liked it more if I was a soccer nut. It felt like a precursor to something else, really, though I do like that her archenemy had a role in this too. Building and building.


    23. New illustrator; I thought Southworth's drawings were better. Greenwood adds even more confusion and distortion, which I do not care for. Story is Timbers Army themed, showing just how crazy the soccer world can get. Volume 2 is my favorite of the three so far. But I am fiercely loyal to Stumptown (the place), so I anticipate keeping up as this series progresses.


    24. When it comes to crime comics, Greg Rucka is golden. Stumptown is by far his best graphic novel series yet. Dex Parios is one of the most flawed gumshoes I've come across but that's what makes her one of the best as well. Always up to do the right thing and always ready to get into trouble, she's awesome. I can't wait for the next one to come out.


    25. I have never been so delighted as to be stuck on one of our many bridges, reading this, to get to the point where the protagonist is also on this bridge, in a car chase scene. The dude next to me leaned over and was so excited he told the guy on the phone with all about it. Awesome.


    26. I've really liked this comic, and love Rucka's work with Oni Press in general, but volume 3 didn't seem as good as volumes 1 and 2. Some of that is the illustration. The team on this one isn't to my taste as much as the first two.


    27. Dex Parios is a private investigator in Portland OR. She's seen military service. She's tough.Greg Rucka is one of the best writers in graphic fiction today. That's the main reason I bought this book, and it was a good choice.


    28. 3.8I admit to a little confusion because there were references that I simply didn't get but I enjoyed the hell out of seeing Dex again. After learning a bit more about her, I need to know more!
