    Comic Bastards - Erik McAlister Nov 20, 2013

    I suggest you pick up this book. Dark Horse has a winner here, especially if it keeps its current creative team. I almost wish that Dark Horse wasn't putting out its zero issues next month, because I'm really curious about what happens next to Agent Price. Regardless, if you were trying to decide whether or not to give it a chance, ponder no further. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jeremy James Nov 22, 2013

    Fans of the X-Men and Peter David's X-Factor- I think Brain Boy is right up your alley. For anyone who enjoys the supernatural, this is a series I would highly recommend adding to your pull list. It's really just too good to be ignored. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Your Friendly Neighborhood Brady Nov 22, 2013

    The creativity seems to know now bounds in this series. Psychic-proof-suited femme fatales? A handler / mother figure who gets to be experimented on in super bizarre ways? Who do you trust? What happened to Brain Boys parents? Its all in there. Plus, theres green slime. What more could you ask for? Brain Boy jumped right into the action and hasnt stopped since the first issue. Catch up if you can on this title and you wont regret it. It will make your brain happy. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Nov 22, 2013

    In this issue, Van Lente reveals about 10 different twists, all of which work, although it leaves the book feeling a little heavier than it probably should. There is a lot of good here, and with a little pruning, this title could become great. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 20, 2013

    It is, but just barely, especially for those who haven't been reading. Unfortunately the story is a bit crammed with facts and tidbits that'll make you want more, and at the same time the whole thing feels decompressed. Crazy, I know. Overall though, this was a fun series that had a good ending that promises big things for anyone who wants to use their imagination to carry the story further. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Nov 18, 2013

    While there were moments where issue #3 felt off somehow, the latest installment of Brain Boy was still highly enjoyable. The artwork in this series never disappoints, while the story got some big developments that increased the scope and mystery of the plot much more than anticipated. Freaking centaur guys freaking centaur. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Nov 19, 2013

    Lente’s writing falls short in comparison to the beautiful work in Silva in this issue. The writer still has plenty of chances to go back on the rails with the zero issue launching next month. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak Nov 25, 2013

    Fred Van Lente's Brain Boy has the potential to be an interesting superhero in the new Dark Horse universe. With some great artwork support from R.B. Silva and Rob Lean, Brain Boy's revival could find some permanency. However, his current personality makes him an unlikeable character. Combined with a confusing, non-linear plot, Brain Boy has a lot of work to do of it wishes to compete with some established superheroes in the industry. Read Full Review
