I loved everything about this volume; the humor, the artwork, the flow. It was all so wonderful! 

The characters were their usual quirky selves and I loved each situation that they had to deal with. 

While the artwork was slightly different, I actually really liked the change! I loved that the characters expressions and the backgrounds when they are experiencing extreme emotions were taken to an even higher level when compared to the other two volumes. Examples:

I also absolutely loved how the night sequence was illustrated! Just looking at the pages made me feel a little woozy! Which I thought was very impressive!

From an organizational standpoint, I thought that this volume did a much better job keeping the chapters (or issues) focused rather than trying to cram too much into each one. I also really appreciated that this time there were little "Two Weeks Later" boxes added when there was a sudden time jump. This was so helpful!

My only complaint was that a few of the dialogue lines repeated themselves. Which I think could have been avoided. (Yet again, just a personal irk.)

My final thoughts:

I would definitely recommend this volume, but only if you have read the other two first to help you get to know the characters. I gave this one five stars!
