The first storyline concludes! The all-new EGOs unite to take down Masse, who’s about to devour four inhabited planets. At stake: eight billion lives, the team itself, and oh yeah: their leader’s marriage. Whether you're a True Believer or a Godless Communist, you must read "The Tadpole and the Sword!”

    We The Nerdy - Eduardo Gueiros Mar 18, 2014

    Overall, this issue is the strongest so far in the series. There is significant plot progression in the sense that a new (new) EGOs squad is formed to take on Masse and the other universal dangers. Character development is once again prominent as we are further introduced to the intricacies of Pix and Deuces minds. And the art once again complements the story through its evocative illustrations and beautiful colors. I am incredibly excited to see what Storms and Moore throw at us next, since their initial twists have left me puzzled as to what I should expect. Read Full Review

    EGOs #3 is a very good comic that might not raise the bar for superheroes or sci-fi but it does offer a quality romp that comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Jesse Scheckner Mar 5, 2014

    This is the third and final installment of EGOs initial three-issue arc, and it ends with a bit of a whimper. I was underwhelmed with its conclusion, and I truly hope things begin picking up soon. The book itself has style to spare; Gus Storms has eschewed the traditionally bland space sci-fi palette in favor of a gorgeous mix of bright blues, purples, pinks and grays to an absolutely beautiful effect, while Stuart Moore has proven to be quite inventive in his character-creating process. In my review of the first issue, I noted how EGOs seemed heavily influenced by Watchmen, Fantastic Four and Green Lantern, and I stand by those observations, however after spending three issues with Deuce and co. its been made rather obvious that this is a horse of an entirely different color, and now that the group itself has more or less congealed, itll be interesting to see what Moore and Storms have in store for us over the next few story arcs.

    Big Comic Page - Shane Hoffman Mar 11, 2014

    Overall however,this is a decent sci-fi story that does grab your attention and leave you wondering where the story will go next or what kind of villain or hero will be introduced next. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - William Mercado Mar 13, 2014

    Like I mentioned earlier, the title had serious potential, it just fell flat with this issue (the end of the first story arc). Stuart Moore's exposition was great in the first two issues, but not only did the ending feel rushed plot-wise, but the dialogue became jarred and confusing as well. The art is pretty cool though. One of the things I really enjoyed with Egos is the color palette that Gus Storms uses– really top notch. Overall though, this issue– and the story– leaves me wanting and disappointed. I mean, if you're going to be ballsy enough to title your comic Egos, you better bring your “A” game. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Mar 12, 2014

    EGOs has slid steadily in my reviews from a 4/5 to a 2/5. Now, you might think I'm done with this book, but you'd be wrong. I'm sticking with it for at least one more issue, because I honestly have faith in Stuart Moore and Gus Storms, and believe that they are capable of great things as a team. I'm hoping they can find that spark of staying power and whip it into the flame I expected after issue one, rather than just being extinguished in the vacuum it's quickly becoming. Read Full Review
