This was a wonderful collection of graphic novel short stories. I pretty much liked, if not loved, all of the stories in here. I thought this was the best volume of Flight yet. I continue to be very impressed with the variety and quality of the Flight graphic novel collections. I am trying to think of favorites, but really I liked all the stories in here. Jellaby and Rex both make a return and continue to be stories I really love.

Overall this was fantastic collection of sci-fi/fantasy graphic novel short stories and I would definitely recommend to fans of that genre. This graphic novel was also appropriate for middle grade (and older) readers (some of the Flight volumes haven't been, they are too mature for middle grade readers). ( )

One of the things that I particularly noticed about Volume 3, more so than Vol. 4, was how well it was organized. The diversity of the stories (both in terms of tone and in terms of plot) was just as great as in Vol. 4, but they were arranged in such a way that one story naturally flowed into the next, with elements from one story both highlighting and contrasting what had come before. The most charming, cute, and funny stories - including an earlier adventure in Michel Gagné's "The Saga of Rex", which is the only part of this anthology series that has an order to it - are pretty heavily front-loaded in this volume, and I enjoyed them all. "Old Oak Trees" by Tony Cliff was a perfect fairy tale adventure, and the punchline of Johane Matte's "Hunter" literally made me laugh out loud. The volume then takes a dip into more serious stories: Azad Inezikian's tragic "Polaris" and Kazu Kibuishi's "Iron Gate" both unexpectedly broke my heart, and Rodolphe Guenoden's "Message in a Bottle" actually made me a little sniffly, although not quite in a sad sort of way. Throughout the book, I was always amazed by how much story and how much emotion and how much creativity these artists could pack into so few panels and pages... which I suppose is a good summation of the Flight series as a whole. 4 out of 5 stars.

Another superb instalment in the Flight series. Stories were a bit shorter but there were more of them and each with greater emotional depth. ( )

Flight 3 is filled with very colourful short comic stories by upcoming indie artists. The art is very beautiful and colourful throughout the book, but the level of the stories themselves differs. There are plenty of small jewels in the book, however. This is my first Flight book, but I will definitely get the rest of them. Highly recommended! ( )

Third in the series, and still great! Starting to remove itself from the theme in some of the stories, flight being used as more of a catalyst for something else, but still decent. Maybe a new theme should be introduced for a new series? Earth? Water? Dance? Countless possibilities! ( )
