3 Guns ends with one of the more homoerotic scenes I can think of–brown-haired guy wet in a speedo and blond-haired guy (not wet in a speedo) facing off with some more of Grant’s macho man dialogue. You can actually hear “Macho Man” in your head during the scene.
If only artist Laiso spent as much time on his perspective as he does on the brown-haired guy’s chest, 3 Guns might actually look professional. But he doesn’t.
Grant and Laiso don’t spend a lot of time on action, which kind of implies Laiso can’t draw it or Grant doesn’t want to write it. There are a lot of face-offs and interrupted action scenes and they all turn into long tough guy dialogue sequences.
But that last scene? If 3 Guns really were yaoi, it’d be so much more interesting than it is as crappy action.
