Pariah Graphic Novel No 3 - Aron Warner
Robert Maudsley knows what makes us tick. He knows what people want, need, hate and love. He can use that knowledge to get us to do whatever he wants, no matter how dangerous, immoral or repugnant that might be. Maudsley has no moral compass. He has no compassion. But he's very curious about how far he can push people and what he can get away with. Maudsley wants to rule the world... to control us all. Maudsley is 15 years old.

In this the 3rd in the series we find out about the character Maudsley, who it appears wants to rule the world and has no moral fibre at all. He manipulates people using information on them in order to get them to do what he wants. We meet him a few years before the accident at the lab happened, and go through his time back then up until the present day.
I found this issue intriguing to say the least, i liked finding out the back story to a character that i think may play a big role in future issues of Pariah. The graphics complimented his story well letting you see the action as it was happening, adding the extra dimension to the whole thing. The story line was well written, and I'm sure there is more to come from this character, i cant wait to find out what that is and if hes going to turn everything around to his own advantage or if he is going to work with all of the others to create there own space and world to live in.
