    The artwork of Antonio Fabela continues to impress me. It's bursting with colour and movement, and does a fantastic job of illustrating the tension and speed with which this story moves. Willa gets to meet a part of her past, while the antagonists of previous issues are out to get all they can, and hurt Willa in the process. That Willa is already moving past them is wonderful, and the ending of this story (no! I want more Willa!) wraps up things nicely, while leaving things open for Willa to fin The artwork of Antonio Fabela continues to impress me.

    When I reviewed the second volume of Joe Henderson and Lee Garbett’s Skyward, I said that this could be the next Y: The Last Man, in that both titles embraced the world-building based on a simple, but unique sci-fi premise, whilst being rooted in the exploration of relatable characters experiencing the extraordinary. However, this third and final volume never quite reaches the near-perfection of the Brian K. Vaughan/Pia Guerra comic that ran for sixty issues. That said, all good things must come to an end, When I reviewed the second volume of Joe Henderson and Lee Garbett’s Skyward, I said that this could be the next Y: The Last Man, in that both titles embraced the world-building based on a simple, but unique sci-fi premise, whilst being rooted in the exploration of relatable characters experiencing the extraordinary.

    The story is nicely wrapped up with all loose ends accounted for. It felt too abrupt to me for such an epic story to come to this quick a conclusion. It also felt less emotional overall. So while the story is finished, the brevity and lightness (pardon the pun) of it lessened my enjoyment. Still decent, though.

    Many are the series or books that start off with a great premise, full of energy and interesting characters and then end without fulfilling that promise. this is one of those series. It ended and was a happy ending without solving all the problems so I felt satisfied at the end but really disappointed. First, Willa never really evolved much over the last volume. No really crises of self to overcome and the big problem "stopping the insect farmers from taking over the city" felt very forced and w Many are the series or books that start off with a great premise, full of energy and interesting characters and then end without fulfilling that promise. this is one of those series. It ended and was a happy ending without solving all the problems so I felt satisfied at the end but really disappointed. First, Willa never really evolved much over the last volume. No really crises of self to overcome and the big problem "stopping the insect farmers from taking over the city" felt very forced and was resolved with all the creative energy of a high school student rushing to get a paper done. the author writes a bit at the back "I'll miss these characters" but I can't believe that's true or he would have done a better job developing them. Second, that big CRISIS went out with such a whimper and was only a crisis because the author tried really hard to make it one. Yeah a bunch of insects is scary but you have to think the city would have some armed resistance to make short work of them even if Willa hadn't helped out in the lamest way possible (get someone to not press a button by talking to them). Third, the sense of wonder and excitement and danger of zero G was really lost in this volume. 11 issues in and the author is already out of neat ideas to explore? Wow. Look to Y the Last Man standing to how to do it right and sustain a novel premise for 50+ issues. Fourth, methinks killing off the father in volume one was a mistake - he would have really helped the last volume have higher emotional stakes. Okay - a lot of critique but I guess I still enjoyed the series overall - but it was mainly on the burst of excitement I felt in that first 5 issues.

    But why is it over so soon?!?! 😭😭 15 issues, 3 volumes, is not nearly enough of Willa and a low-G world! This was such a cool series and I'm really sad to see it end. I loved so much of it! And I especially like how this volume turned out. Love love!

    Skyward finishes kind of eh verses how good it started but still fun. We find out the secret Willa's father had this whole time. Is there really a way to turn off the gravity? Who's behind this all? What is this new secret society in hiding? Will the bad guy finally get his fucking teeth knocked out? It is all answered here. Willa is still a great main character and the pacing is quick and never boring here. However, the story itself takes predictable twist and nothing really surprising.

    I think this was an ok ending to the series. I do plan to re-read it sometime int he future, to get a better picture of everything and find the things I might have missed this time around, but that will have to wait a while. I never really got invested in Willa as an MC. The reason I continued reading this series was because it was so short to begin with, and I'm glad it stayed that short. Any longer, and it would have dragged out. I generally liked how they wrapped everything up. I also liked t I think this was an ok ending to the series.

Feel like I can't say more than that without spoiling.

    I didn’t realize this is a 3 part series. I enjoyed the last volume of Skyward, but gave it 3 stars because everything wrapped up so neatly, so quickly. I do like the message that despite everything decency and humanity can prevail in spite of a terrible situation.

    The way everything tied up felt very fast and abrupt. I still like the series just think that it could've had an extension.

    Skyward loses a little bit as it tries to wrap up all of its plots in one single volume, but being off its game just means it's good instead of the previously great quality of earlier volumes.

Chicago is the center of conflict as the insect farmers are on their way, but she gets distracted by unexpected family matters and a MacGuffin that turns out to be... unexpected. The relationship between Willa and Barrow also ends up going in unexpected ways, although nothing that undermines its previous balance. Lucas gets some resolution as well, although it's less than satisfying. But Willa does work out a positive solution for almost everything, and we get a fairly happy ending. I'd be happy to see the series continue, but this also makes a good stopping point. The art is as good as ever, and while the sheer number of ideas that intrigued me in the first volumes has dried up a bit, there are still ramifications brought up that make for interesting plot points. Ultimately, it's not a knock-out volume for the series, but it's good enough that I heartily recommend this volume (and the entire series) to anyone who likes something a little bit different in their comics.

    Skyward was such a neat find, and I’m glad that Joe and team decided to provide this story a finite open ending. This narrative highlights what’s so great about fiction and the graphic novel form because this story essentially centers on a simple question: what happens if we lose gravity? The simplicity of this concept allowed this creative team to world build an environment where everything was tipsy-turvy and where a person of color could be a hero just cause.

But, also, a world where terrible people will still be terrible because that’s just how the world is with or without gravity. Volume 3 closes out the story and puts Willa at the center with a renewed purpose and will. While volume 2 dealt with her doubts and Lucas’ influence, volume 3 Willa knows herself and is confident in what can do. There’s also an unexpected reunion for her (not so much her audience), and the culmination of a much hinted at romance. The story ends with the promise that Willa will continue forward and will embark on all kinds of adventures.

    I'm sad to say I had a little bit of a problem with this one... I like the whole idea of this graphic novel series a lot, the art is gorgeous, and I mean GORGEOUS, but this final arc just didn't do it for me. It was so rushed, in one volume alone we discovered a whole new world, we got introduced to Willa's mom, we "fought a war" and there was kind of an epilogue!!! So much happened and none of it felt natural and seemed to flow in a nice pace. I don't have a problem with the direction the story I'm sad to say I had a little bit of a problem with this one...

I'm not saying I hated it, it just wasn't anything more than an "ok" time.

    The Skyward series concludes in a somewhat deflated fashion. We learn Willa's father's secret to defeating anti-gravity, we see the bug army descend on Chicago, and we see a lot of one-note characters continue to play that one note. Fix the World is relentlessly fast-paced, like the rest of the series, but it lacks the excitement and twists of the second volume. Honestly, it feels like a very perfunctory conclusion. Satisfying, sure, but not memorable. At least Lee Garbett's artwork and An The Skyward series concludes in a somewhat deflated fashion.

    I thought this series was gorgeous, I love the depiction of action, i love the ink and color work, and the story is just great. I know it reads a little young and impulsive, but honestly I don't think I'd believe the characters as the ages they are otherwise. To me... that makes the "speed" of the story here forgivable. I like not having to show me every week/month/day that passes. Really makes me want to draw some giant bugs.

    3.5. Didn't finish as strongly as it started. As far as pacing goes, the ending was sort of like running all the way through the story then slamming into a wall. I loved the concept of this series so much, and still loved all the characters through the ending. Henderson's afterward talks about hopes to spend more time with Willa in the Skyward universe in the future, and I would be happy to see that happen.

    This wasn't quite the ending I was expecting for this series. I suppose I was hoping for something more definite considering all the build up...but I'm glad I saw the series through. It's ultimately a story about family and doing the right thing and what it sometimes takes to try to fix the world.

    A satisfying conclusion to the series. I wish certain elements were expanded and explored more, however, overall I think it achieved on creating a world that was beautiful and vast. One that I would have loved to live in more if given the chance.

    This third and final volume was the weakest. I feel like the premise was better than the execution. Not terrible, but a disappointment. At one point there was an army flying into combat mounted on giant butterflies. Yes, it comes off as goofy as it sounds.

    I read this as the last of the series. The description says it's ongoing, so I don't know if that is correct. If this was indeed the end, it did a wonderful job of tying everything up. The only thing I didn't care for was the surprise reunion.

    A good, quick read. Felt a tad rushed, but am looking forward to part 2. I love the art in this series, and the characters. I wish we knew why the gravity got switched down though...
