    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough May 27, 2015

    Throughout the book, Hardmans art remains just as vital to the story as any other element. Hardman is a great artist for showcasing how crucial art is to storytelling in comics, his panel layouts are dynamic with the aforementioned chase scene feeling exciting despite the lack of moving images. Arthurs character too is enhanced by Hardmans perfect capturing of emotions, capturing the raw, frightening look to the unhinged character. While the modern citys grey landscape can still be a bit much at times, it suits the story and portrays this world as a desperate, broken one without any need to tell us. The scene of crowds fighting each other for supply drops are very impactful, with all the emotion being captured without the need for dialogue or over explanatory text boxes. Read Full Review

    "Invisible Republic" #3 is full of action but doesn't move the plot along too much. It's like a chess game and all the pieces are in places. As the arc begins to wind down, I expect a lot to go down. This is quietly becoming one of the best series Image is putting out monthly. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Ian Yarington May 31, 2015

    Issue three is certainly action packed and services the story lines but they leave both story lines with plenty to tell as they set up for issue four. As I said before the world is wonderful and not over crowded with aliens and sci-fi imagery, the story is what grabs us and the story is what leaves the reader wanting more. At this point in the book Im already invested but my desire to know what happens with Maia as well as what happens with her journal in the hands of Babb will have me picking up issue four. This is one of those books that is very well written and has underlying themes attached to the story that will have the reader thinking about it until the next issue is out and I couldnt ask for anything more when reading any sort of a book, sci-fi or otherwise.

    A good issue with strong narrative but an reliance on depressing greys to give it that fashionable gritty feel. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake May 28, 2015

    Gabriel Hardman and Corinna Bechko don't do a whole lot to advance here, instead using plot lines both past and present to up the book's already considerable intrigue. It mostly works, but for different reasons. Read Full Review
