    This issue was fantastic. This series isn't even over and I have already re-read it on two separate occasions, it is just that damn good. If you have friends who aren't sure about comics because they aren't into superheroes or are tired of the same stale stuff recycled over and over, give them this series, they ought to get right on board with the rollicking tale. Hats off to Waid and Samnee yet again for another amazing issue, I eagerly await their finale next month. Read Full Review

    The Rocketeer continues to show that everything old is new again. Waid and Samnee deliver the goods with Cargo of Doom and make an old style comic story that doesn't feel cheesy in the slightest. With one more issue to go, it will be interesting to see how it wraps up. The way this one ended felt slightly too easy, but we'll have to wait and see the real endgame. Rocketeer is a can't miss series 4.5/5 Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 31, 2012

    All the crazy dinosaur action looks amazing, thanks to Chris Samnee. Again, this is a frantic and chaotic issue that is at times hard to follow. The dinosaurs look huge and I'm not entirely sure how they could fit in the hull of a ship, but I don't really care either. It's fun and ridiculous and I love it. Also, Samnee draws a little tiny heart as Cliff kisses his new found ray gun and disintegrates a dinosaur with it. It's those kind of details that make the Rocketeer so great. It doesn't always makes sense, but that's not why we read comic books. We read them so we can see guys with jetpacks fight dinosaurs and the Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom #3 delivers that in spades.

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Nov 2, 2012

    It's hard to say that this issue took a step back, because the action is ramping up and Waid and Samnee have put everything in place for the story's logical conclusion and that action is certainly satisfying. But this is the first time in this series where there is some downtime that isn't filled with great character moments. The middle section of the story feels like the means to an end, which should go relatively unnoticed when read as a series, but stood out in this issue. Regardless, if you've come this far, there's no reason to quit. You will feel satisfied by where this story is going. If you haven't been reading this, there's still every reason to pick this up at some point. The art is gorgeous and Waid is very much suited for this kind of character. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Oct 31, 2012

    Still, the sheer size of them is used to set up the final issue, as they're a bit too big for the Rocketeer to simply beat down. That said, this issue also provides him with what looks to be an easy answer. Too easy, perhaps, but only the final issue will tell. Read Full Review
