    If you liked the first two issues, then you will thoroughly enjoy this one as there is a lot of meat on the bone in this book. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Christopher Romero Feb 28, 2013

    Magno and Garland's artwork for Deathmatch has been explosive and carefully crafted, and issue #3 continues the pattern. The action panels display raw character emotion, particularly between Meridian and The Collective, adding intensity to a book about survival among the fittest. I do wonder if the way in which the abductors' identity is revealed might be a little to easily spoon-fed to us, but the details set the stage for what will surely be a riveting fourth installment of Deathmatch.

    Deathmatch #3 isn't without flaws, but also not without its merits. The concept as a whole is captivating and with the last page being one hell of a doozy, it'll be interesting to see where Jenkins and company can go from here. Read Full Review

    Paul Jenkins is writing and if you've read his stuff before you know the guy is pretty good with heroes. I wasn't familiar with Carlos Magno before this issue, but I think it worked really well for the book. Now I just want to see what's really going on! Read Full Review

    Even in an issue in which "Deathmatch" stumbles a bit as it juggles exposition heavy back story, it's still a solid comic, and one that is worth picking up -- against all odds. I remain impressed, and perhaps more importantly, excited to see where Jenkins and Magno are taking us. Read Full Review
