    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Sep 6, 2012

    If I have one problem with Silk Spectre #3, it's the excessive nudity. Even that, however, is used for very specific reasons. Over all, this book is a perfect storm of beautiful art, clever writing, and touching storytelling. I hate to see it end next month. Read Full Review

    Only one issue left?! I'm really going to miss this series when it's done, because this is perfection! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 5, 2012

    Besides the typically bland Crimson Corsair feature, there's really nothing to complain about with Silk Spectre #3. This may be the only Before Watchmen book that leaves me immediately wanting more once it wraps up. Read Full Review

    I really want Cooke and Conner to team up on something else. Something new and wholly theirs so I can stop having reservations and just love the hell out of it. As it stands, I still kinda love this. Read Full Review

    It might not be the first of these books I'd recommend to fans of the original, but without a doubt, it's spot in my heart is well secured. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - MrComicBook Sep 6, 2012

    Amanda Conner continues to pencil the hell out of this book. The acid trip extravaganza on the first few pages uses some of the best panel structure I have seen. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Sep 7, 2012

    This issue represents the best single issue in the Before Watchmen launches. It's a great look into the moments where Laurie decides she can't pass up what she was meant to be and she also realizes she really doesn't want to pass it up either. The story does a fantastic job of showing the transformation of her thoughts, but the events also play out in a logical fashion. This was a great read. Read Full Review

    WhatCulture - Marcus Doidge Sep 6, 2012

    Silk Spectre's part in Before Watchmen continues to be the most standalone of the miniseries' but its beginning to tie into the grand scene of things this week with the ever growing drug problem in the Before Watchmen series. For Watchmen fans, this issue holds a moment with a certain smiley badge that was handled pretty well. After the strongest of the series so far, Dr. Manhattan a couple of weeks back, each issue following feels like were going through the motions until we get back to the blue guya little, but with that said Ive still got quite a crush on the combination of Darwyn Cooke, Amanda Conner and Laurie Jupiter.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Sep 6, 2012

    All in all, this still looks fantastic, but I'm hoping the finale brings back the maternal struggle that so well defined the first two issues. Read Full Review
