It all comes down to this. After a year and a half since Vol. 2, "Fathom Vol. 3" started in June 2008 and 10 issues later concluded in February 2010, here in its entirety in "Fathom: Vol. 3 - Worlds At War", concluding the vision of its creator, Michael Turner, who sadly would not live to see his opus finished after losing his battle with bone cancer. By this point it should be clear if you're a fan of Fathom, and chances are if you've read Vol. 2 then you have a clear idea about what to expect going into this third and in a way final volume.

The sense of finality plays a heavy role in this volume, and by now if you've read previous volumes you know the drill: ambitious story, even more ambitious visuals, with Michael Turner's notes being made by J.T. Krul and Sal Regla who return as writer and inker with penciling and colouring duties by Alé Garza and John Starr. Aspen and Chance continue their relationship, isolated from the rest of the world as Aspen decides which side she will stand with as relations between the US Navy and the Blue escalate, while the Black finally begin their rise to the surface to regain their place as the dominant species on earth once again, and a very much alive Killian plots his revenge against the humans by forming a new group of disgruntled Blue, all routes leading to a standoff between all four factions in Istanbul, Turkey. Where the story lacks with less exposition unlike the previous volumes, it makes up with an incredible build-up to the climactic ending, and by the time the page has been turned and several key characters have passed away as you read this book, there is a real sense that this is the end of the story Michael Turner envisioned up to and from now on the series will move into uncharted waters as it continues on its own.

Being a fan of the Fathom comic I saw this and thought 'Wow what a price for the entire Volume 3'!!!! However, this cannot be read on a kindle device or any tablet! I have a 9.5" Prestigio tablet and I cannot read the comic on this device. You cannot zoom into the panels or pages and cannot convert to a PDF via the Calibre program. I get the 2000AD and Judge Dredd Megazine comics from Clickwheel as PDF's and they look great on my tablet. However this is disappointing and I will not buy another comic from Amazon until they change the format or let you change the format.

Very cool conclusion to one of the best comic series in years. It only enhances the loss felt by Michaels departure from this world.

Complex Saga 1 Jun. 2010
By JFBeilman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just finished reading volume 2 and volume 3 of Fathom last night. Overall, the three volumes of Fathom that I have are very entertaining. They present an overarching storyline that deals with Aspen, the protagonist, discovering her true heritage among a secret race of underwater huminiods, the Blue, and the worlds of the Blue and the Humans colliding with exciting and violent results for both races. In volume 3, the Blue finally reveal themselves to the rest of the world in order to attempt a peaceful resolution to the hostilities. However, this complicates Aspen's already complicated life as her cover is completely blown among the surface dwellers, which makes it impossible for her to return to her anonymous life in San Deigo. There is even a scene in this volume that is reminescent of the humans' predjudice of freaks that is also depicted in the X-men comics. The reason I gave this volume four stars is because of the uncertain ending, however it doesn't detract from what is a Star Wars-like story featuring complex 3-dimensional characters, who are neither totally bad or good, like in real life.
A bit of an anti-climax 25 April 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The artwork is still fantastic but while the three volumes build up to a final huge battle it seems to end with a whimper.

Essentially the underwater race called the Black have had enough of humans polluting the water and move to destroy the humans. Meanwhile the other underwater race called the Blue debate on whether they should help the humans or just ignore the conflict and remain secluded as they have for thousands of years. Finally, Aspen, who is linked to all three races gets dragged into the conflict and has to decide where she stands.

As I said, the artwork is great and these are big books, so they are definitely worth the investment.

I read this on my 7"kindle fire HD with panel view and had no problem reading it.

I highly recommend this book.

If stars are not enough; please stop asking for my review. I could just as easily not do any of it and just delete your emails.
