Volume 3 of Exiles puts the series firmly back on track after a few missteps in Volume 2 (mostly the Chuck Austen run, which ends here). Artist Jim Caliafore writes a two-parter before Tony Bedard takes over, and their stories are a big improvement. Thankfully, they restore Blink to the team, although they don't shy away from killing off old team members and bringing in new ones. The stories contained in Volume 3 thankfully veer away from the never-ending post-apocalyptic tales and are generally of greater variety. There's a story dealing with a Marvel Universe that looks like something out of Conan the Barbarian, a comedic story in which the Exiles face off against the Impossible Man, and even a story where they fight an alternate version of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. There's a resolution to the ongoing conflict between the Exiles and their less squeamish counterparts, Weapon X. The Exiles even return to the regular Marvel universe and pick up a new team member from Grant Morrison's run on New X-Men. Few of these stories are ground breakingly original (except for a done-in-one tale in which the team must save an alternate reality by purchasing the last danish at a bakery), but they are fun to read. Bedard has a good handle on the team's dynamics and character personalities and relationships. If you've read the first two volumes, you'll probably find the third one a pretty good continuation of the series.
