Former Green Lantern Jediah Caul leads an assault on the powers behind the game...a very ill advised assault. Introducing CAPTAIN KROT! In the backup feature, the hunt for Larfleezes stuff turns up evidence that the theft was an inside job!

    I've completely changed. I'm enjoying Larfleeze much more than The Hunted. I'm a Giffen-addict, so I'll be eagerly awaiting the next issue. Read Full Review

    It took three issues, but I'm now fully checked into whatever Keith Giffen is going to do with cosmic DC in the pages of Threshold. We may not have Ted Kord back, but we can at least get that flavor that made him famous with a bunch of new characters that DC is not likely to demand to use, abuse and murder anytime soon.

    This issue was a borderline 4, but it's Dalhouse's colors that pushed it up. This is one of my Top of the Pile books for last month, and while I really enjoy this issue in particular, it was a tad slow and I really didn't like the artist switch halfway through the issue. I love how Blue Beetle is being incorporated here, and I feel like finally someone is utilizing this character in a new and exciting way. Giffen is doing an awesome job with this series.

    Den Of Geek! - Mike Cecchini Mar 15, 2013

    The Larfleeze back-up story is, as usual, amusing. But Larfleeze is kind of a one-joke character, and this story is already wearing thin. Scott Kolins art is always a treat, and Giffen's sense of humor saves "Awkward Alliances and Other Mishaps of Note" from being completely disposable, but I can't help but wonder how DC thinks Larfleeze is going to support his own title. Then again, the fans do love him, so what do I know? All in all, Threshold delivers some weight for your $3.99, and each issue has been packed with characters, information, and action. Even when they spin their wheels a little (which, I'll confess, this issue did), it's still a fine way to waste an afternoon! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Mar 18, 2013

    The moving plot and some of the characters save this issue from being a total loss with the large cast of unexplained characters and the drastic change in artistic style. The Larfleeze backup does help the whole thing as well thanks to the funny script and Scott Kolins art. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 18, 2013

    Perhaps there will be some reward to be found in the team up between the Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle and Lonar, but the fuse has burnt pretty far for me with "Threshold" #3. I'm a dozen bucks on characters that can't even compel me to remember their names. The only thing that could truly save it would be for these characters to find some purpose, some consistency and some great art. Until that happens, I'm pretty darn sure I can spend $3.99 some other way. Read Full Review

    When images of the new "Captain K'rot" started hitting the Internet months ago I prayed it was some elaborate hoax. Sadly, this wasn't the case. Seeing yet another beloved character from my childhood debased for a quick buck didn't fill me with anger or surprise. After a year and a half of being desensitized to how DC Comics has chosen to do business, I honestly wouldn't be surprised by any new low the New 52 will eventually sink to. And this is pretty damn low. And I fucking love Keith Giffen! Pass. Read Full Review
