    Darwyn Cooke's interpretation of these characters is brilliant and completely on point. The way he captures the naivety of Hollis Mason, the conservatism of Dollar Bill and the virtuousness of Silhouette is just beautiful. Pair that with his absolutely stunning pencils and Phil Noto's perfect colors and we have a perfect comic book. I am absolutely loving this series and I feel it is one of the few BEFORE WATCHMEN titles that does a great service to the original stories. Read Full Review

    All the Before Watchmen series have been quite good so far, but I think this series holds a slight edge so far - but it's really too close to call until the final issues roll up. Read Full Review

    Cooke's illustration is as beautiful as always, and the stories unfolding in Minutemen are the most compelling of all of the Before Watchmen efforts. If you're going to read any of it, this is what you should read. Read Full Review

    While this book's overall feeling is much more straight forward than the others, Cooke's telling this story in much better than a lot of these stories. Like the Silk Spectre series, this book really has a great big heart underneath all we're seeing and it makes for a nice read that is as fun at times as it can be heartbreaking. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Aug 29, 2012

    The minor hiccups aside, Before Watchmen: Minutemen #3 is the real deal, a well-crafted narrative that manages to work within the air-tight confines of Alan Moore's original work. Great artwork, visceral characterization and a nice dose of stakes keeps this book hopping way more than you would ordinarily expect. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 29, 2012

    Minutemen remains one of the stronger Before Watchmen books. It looks great, and it's doing a better job of realizing its potential and expanding upon these characters in tangible ways. Read Full Review

    Before Watchmen: Minutemen #3 is another really good issue that's worth your time, even it fails to push the series into bolder waters. Recommended. Read Full Review
