    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Jul 9, 2013

    This book might not be for everyone and Dark Horse and these creators aren't here to pull punches with X and Arcadia. They go all out and on that level it works. Issue three really starts to reveal the motives and the games that must be played to take over or win back this city. X cranks it up to 11 and if you know what's good for you then just strap in and enjoy the ride! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Sergio Porras Jul 10, 2013

    I'm really sold on this sick and twisted world of X. Every issue a small string of the metaphorical sweater is pulled and a little more revealing X and the city of Arcadia's secrets. At a $2.99 price tag readers shouldn't be skipping out on this interesting, blood bath of a read. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 10, 2013

    The book certainly doesn't open with inspiring writing or art. Leigh running away from the bad guys lasts too long with not much for her to do but look scared. That said, the rest of the book is entertaining with some interesting surprises. Anyone who digs crime comics with a bit of a superhero flair should check this out. In a lot of ways X is like Batman, only with a katana and a penchant to cut people's heads and limbs off. If that sounds like a good combo, then stop sitting around and buy this book!

    Entertainment Fuse - Nicole D'Andria Jul 21, 2013

    This is a great follow-up to X #2 focusing more on action than unintentional hilarity, going from a guilty pleasure to a genuine treasure still marred by some flaws. But while I found myself laughing at the last issue more, this issue had a lot of enjoyable gore and X continues to be a cool and mysterious anti-hero. Even if we do go out on a bad pun.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 10, 2013

    "X" #3 is another good issue, and is a strong lead-in to next month's wrapping up of the series' first storyline. Swierczynski and Nguyen have marked their spot quite well in "X." I'll be back for more. It's dark and twisted, but it's fun, too. Read Full Review
