The third issue of Marvel’s western, 1872, arrived a week ago, and as the cover shows, we’re finally getting a little of the extraordinary nature of the Marvel heroes universe.  Following the shocking events of last issue, some of the resident of the town of Timely are in an uproar.  They’re tired of the violence and they want some stability and less corruption from their leaders.  Gerry Duggan and Nik Virella keep the story interesting, and in continuity with other events happening across Battleworld, but the flurry of action in the latter half of this issue happens a little too quickly.  The first half is relatively tame, and then things just explode and things go haywire.  It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it does feel a little unnatural.  That being said, the fourth and final issue of this story should be something pretty spectacular.

The Verdict for 1872 #3:
4/5 – I can dig it.
