    After reading issue three I can be sure of one thing: No one knows where Americas Got Powers is headed but Ross and Hitch. The last two issues have ended with jaw dropping last pages that make me impatiently await the next one. AGPs mix of smart, sharp dialog; gripping, unpredictable story, and eye meltingly gorgeous art make it a must read for fans of the comic medium. If you are one of those only Marvel or DC readers, this is the book you need to branch out and try. You will be glad you did. Read Full Review

    Comicville - Alan Smodic Aug 30, 2012

    America's Got Powers remains a very strong, and underrated, title that doesn't get quite the coverage that other Image comics currently receive. That fact is a shame, but don't let that steer you away from giving it a shot — it's a fun read with great art, storytelling and a decent tie-in to today's pop culture. However, because of the scheduling issues, it may be best to accumulate all the issues (or wait for the trade) so you can digest this all at once. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 24, 2012

    I'm a little surprised that Ross' celebrity status hasn't gotten this book coverage by the "mainstream" press, and I haven't heard all that much from within the comics industry about it, either (unless you count Twitter feeds.) There's a lot to like in this book, as it's starting to emerge from the shadow of 'Rising Stars' and 'Wildguard' to carve it's own niche in the superhero-as-celebrity subgenre. America's Got Powers #3 is building up steam for what I hope is a slam-bang conclusion, and manages to be both well-written and well-drawn without many people noticing, earning 4 out of 5 stars overall. This is a good book, and I think you should read it... Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Kat West AKA Comic Uno Aug 28, 2012

    I recommend you pick up this series either in trade or as single issues. So, far it is a really interesting story that always delivers. I can't wait to see how this mini series in the upcoming issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Aug 26, 2012

    Still, it is ultimately a complimentary complaint, and "America's Got Powers" remains surprisingly overlooked, given the talent on it and the quality of each issue. If you haven't tried it, now's the time to get on board. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Aug 22, 2012

    Bryan Hitch delivers his usual dynamic, detailed artwork. America's Got Powers might take a while to come out, but it looks quite nice once it arrives. His work has always had a realistic quality to it; a fine sense of space and perspective. There are a few moments in this issue where the characters look a bit stiff, with almost a mannequin like quality. For the most part though, everything looks good. Hitch draws superhero books as good, if not better, than any artist out there. Read Full Review

    The wait for AGP 3 was well worth it. The series continues with another strong entry. This is one series to pick up, you might not want to wait for the trade. Read Full Review

    Comic Addicts - Akshay Dhar Aug 28, 2012

    Underground resistance groups, big overlord government, underdog hero and a strange twist on powers, particularly Tommy's (now known as "Zero" because he rates as that on a power scale) all make this both an entertaining read and a unique take on a lot of familiar stuff. Nicely handled and after a hesitation at the first issue, I'm sold on seeing where this goes and the as-always excellent art and awesome action showcased by artist extraordinaire Hitch makes this series a winner.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Aug 22, 2012

    While the story develops problems as it gets more complicated, the art is shockingly good, especially Bryan Hitch's attention to detail and the volume of content he fits on each page. Read Full Review

    This series may yet redeem itself, depending on where the story goes from here, but right now, the art is the only real reason to pick it up. Read Full Review
