    I'm really enjoying this comic more than anything I have read for a while and I think it really benefits from the lack of violence and strong language. An interesting direction for Millar and welcome one I would say. The art continues to be outstanding and just reaffirms my opinion that Albuquerque as one of the best comic artists around.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jan 13, 2016

    I loved the first two issues of Huck for very different reasons and I love the third for a different reason as well. Huck didn't start off as some perfect being, but rather someone with a big heart that could do a lot to help others. Once the world got their hooks into him, it was easily to see how he could stumble and predictable that he would. It's where he goes after this that's important and that's what I'm looking forward to reading next. For all the emotions this issue made me feel, I can't help but acknowledge just how incredible of an issue it is. No hype, this issue is just that fucking good. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Jan 13, 2016

    Reading this book is like going back in time withthe “gosh, golly, wow” type of innocence of the lead character. The trying to fit in element reminds me a lot of the Batman: The Animated Series episode “Birds of a Feather”. Huck's greatest weakness may be his undoing. How can someone fix the world, when in some ways it is so broken, especially when those entrusted with its care have such a hard time following Huck's example? The book remains an excellent read, under the watchful eyes of Millar and Alberquerque who have started adding to the cast in order to ensure that the book doesn't fall into the one trick pony trap, which at the start of the issue, was a possibility.

    Huck #3 as a whole was a fantastic continuation to this latest Millarworld series, giving us a dramatic set of events that explore just how the world view Huck's abilities. This is all accompanied by some thrilling developments with the creative team leaving us with a shocking twist at the end. Read Full Review

    The plot is thickening! There is much more to come, and I can only imagine what madness Millar will bring in subsequent issues. Huck is a really likeable character with a lot of charm and a generally endearing, innocent nature about him. I can’t wait for Huck to get to know his biological family. This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites, and I’m already itching for more! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Stephenson Ardern-Sodje Jan 14, 2016

    The issue of heroism in the media was clearly one at the forefront of Millar's mind as he planned this book, but as it heads to its conclusion his secondary story starts to rear its head. I'm a fan of Millar's work, but I do think that some of his books are definitely better than others. While I loved “Kick-Ass”, and “Wanted”, “Secret Service” and “Nemesis” left me feeling a little cold. In my opinion his books work best when he works past the grimness of his heroes and forges characters with mirth and heart in a way that is truly his own. “Huck” typifies that kind of balance for me, as well as managing to be an interesting revisit of classic comic book tropes that still feels fresh today. As far as I'm concerned, this is potentially his best book to date. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Dobler Jan 13, 2016

    Huck #3 can feel less like a chapter and more of a single scene, but it's one that deserves to expand and breathe within the greater scope of this story. The events themselves, while surely pointing toward a higher-level confrontation down the line, currently aren't as important as the overall emotional architecture this issue builds — one that continues to distinguish our shiny knight from the tarnished world he inhabits. The eventual, climactic clash of concepts will feel much richer thanks to the laying of this painstaking groundwork. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jan 14, 2016

    Complete with yet another worrying teaser ending, Huck #3 maintains the same caliber and investment as the previous chapters had. Following up on the cliffhanger from the second issue, Millar presses a bit harder on those concerns for what may befall Huck. Readers are likely crossing their fingers and knocking on wood that this benevolent creature remain unscathed by the world around him. Read Full Review

    "Huck" #3 is another charming issue and a reminder of how great Millar's comics have been since he swapped shock-based plot turns for books that aim to evoke strong emotion in his readers. I could read "Huck" all day long and just smile because of how likable its title character is. More of this, please. Read Full Review

    Your heart will melt at how much caring and love Huck has in his heart. None of his abilities go to his head. He stays simple and true to his helping nature, a true hero. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 14, 2016

    Huck may be the least flashy title in Mark Millar's eclectic stable, and in many ways that's both its biggest draw and largest knock. It's an entirely character driven read, and considering that the main character is one of little words and even littler complications, that makes the book's enduring narrative one tough to fully get behind.

    This book has been something else; it reads like what if you put Superman into Forest Gump. It was a strange tale starting out, but it has really grown into something much more than what I got from that first issue. I wasn’t sure what to make of this issue, because I didn’t really like the political stuff of this story, and im pretty sure I wasn’t supposed to really enjoy it. Also the whole “im in room so-and-so… come up and see me sometime…” was a bit too heavy-handed. I had the goofy idea that Huck actually kept her room key and gave it to the homeless guys outside the building who saw him feeding all the fish and chicken to the dumpster cats, making for some classic sitcom level awkwardness. I hope it doesn’t go any darker than that, because this book doesn’t need any weird, rape-y tropes to build the momentum of the story. The artwork is great in this book, and Mark Millar really knows his stuff. I just wanted something MORE from this book. It wasn’t bad, wasn’t great but I just felt like I should have had more interesting things to see in this issue. But after three issues, a lot of good has been done, and Huck is a very interesting and mysterious story- though it looks like next issue we will be getting some (potentially honest) revelations about Huck and his backstory, which as of now has been pretty murky stuff…

    entertaining story even if it is under developed. what really strikes me as funny is the warmhearted elements in Huck feel insincere, while the mean spirited wicked characters are what Mark Millar seems to have a better voice for.
