    Brigid Roth goes to Cornwall to investigate a dead body found chained to a stone circle. Madness ensues.I loved the first two volumes of Injection, but unfortunately volume 3 did little for me. It's basically Warren Ellis on autopilot — something something happens, Brigid calls somebody a fucking prick, everybody runs somewhere, big sci-fi explosions, Brigid calls something a fucking shite, a bunch of people die gruesomely.The plot confused the hell out of me, and I seriously can't say what it's Brigid Roth goes to Cornwall to investigate a dead body found chained to a stone circle.

I am also not a fan of Brigid as a character — out of the whole roster of characters introduced in volume 1, she was probably the least interesting, yet this whole book is centered around her and her new nameless sidekick. Brigid is bitter and condescending towards everybody, and that gets old and annoying really fast.It's not all bad, though. Ellis is still the master of razor-sharp obscene dialogue, nobody else in comics writes cuss-filled banter like he does (well, maybe Garth Ennis). The silent action scenes are also excellent, another thing that Ellis has mastered through the years. And of course, Declan Shalvey's artwork with Jordie Bellaire's colours are absolutely majestic and better than they've ever been — just look at the covers for the issues! They're amazing! The positives won't let me give this one less than three stars (it was a moderately fun read, after all), but this is still my least favourite volume of Injection so far. I hope that it gets back on track with volume 4 — the series still has so much potential, it would be criminal to waste it all on mindless stories like this one.

    The delays between the issues of this are too long to enjoy it properly. Going to have to return to it at some point. I'm finding Image series are usually better that way

    This remain my favorite volume of Injection to date, but the final chapter fell a bit flat for me. I think Ellis did his best job to date in adding characterization to one of the main players, this time Brigid. I understand that her characterization might not work for everyone. For me, I enjoyed reading an investigation tale that featured a highly intelligent woman reviewing the facts, and to a degree reading the people involved, to come up with solutions to a fantastic problem.

This series' question might be not the Injection, but whether Ellis can continue to do volumes focusing on individual players while building to a satisfying conclusion.

    I'm continuing to really enjoy this series, which finds Warren Ellis writing in something of the same vein as his classic Planetary.

Great combination of folklore and high tech, with continuing high level artwork from Declan Shalvey.

    I love it. I wish I understood what the hell it was about. But I love it. This time it’s as if Stonehenge conspiracy theories were real. Less killbride in this one which I’m not happy about but Brigid is growing on me now. Great series so far. Patience is required though.

    Injection is definitely one of those series’ that is best to binge read; having several months between each volume, it’s easy to completely forget what happened in the previous instalment.

    Significant improvement over Vol 2. Much neater self contained story.
