    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jun 26, 2013

    There’s only one issue left so if you missed this series you’re kind of screwed unless you buy it digitally, what with the first issue selling so well. I would definitely recommend it even if you have played the game already since it takes place beforehand. You could wait for the trade which I think will make for a great read, but really you should just get the digital floppies. Now I’m off to rework the budget or at least distract myself from not owning the game already until I can finish reading this series. Read Full Review

    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Jul 30, 2013

    The art, characters, story, and everything are just as good as the first two issues. What makesAmerican Dreams #3 the best one yet is that it's a thrillfest. I couldn't put this one down for a second and you're not going to be able to either. That's the bottom line. The bad news?The Last of Us: American Dreams #4 comes out tomorrow and it is the last in the mini-series. I can't wait to see how they wrap things up, but it will be bittersweet! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Jun 28, 2013

    “American Dreams” does a solid job setting up some background information for the game it's tying into. However, due to the fact that the game it's supposed to supplement has been called “The Citizen Kane of Gaming” by pretty much everyone, it's a little hard for the comic to grow in its sibling's shadow. Read after the game, “American Dreams” helps fill in some blanks on certain characters' backgrounds while being sure to remind you of some rather painful moments in the main game. As a licensed tie-in, it does its job. However, on its own, “American Dreams” doesn't do a whole lot to separate itself from many other zombie comics, though its doubtful that someone would pick this up without getting the game. And you should get the game. Oh, you absolutely should. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Jun 26, 2013

    I really want to likeAmerican Dreams, but it just doesn't work for me. The unlikeable characters, the meaningless plot, the beautiful, but mismatched, art, almost completely undercut my enjoyment of the book. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - ShadowJayd Jun 27, 2013

    Overall, The Last of Us: American Dreams is a series derived from favourable circumstances. The video game is doing so well in the mainstream market, garnering critical acclaim from all directions; a comic book series would definitely succeed in reaching out to that same audience. Of course the fandom would be interested in a series thats made to expand the universe thats captivated (and is still captivating) them. Its a smart move by everyone involved. Will this series speak to those unfamiliar with the video game? Maybe, but definitely not to the same extent. Read Full Review
