    I'm heartbroken that Lee and McCann will only give us four issues of Lost Vegas because this is one of the most creative and entertaining comic books I've read in a long time. It literally takes me far away from my daily life. Read Full Review

    Lost Vegas #4 goes on sale July 17, 2013. My advice is to catch up on the first three issues ASAP. When you hit the cliffhanger at the end of the third issue, you will not want to miss the conclusion. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson May 28, 2013

    When Lost Vegas began it was a sci-fi head scratcher many times yet has now slipped into a strong cohesive story with a balanced blend of the odd and the familiar to make this as entertaining and engaging as any book out there. It's easy to get lost in Vegas and highly recommend taking a trip to try your luck. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Andrea Shockling Jun 1, 2013

    But the epic Cantina-like feel of the first two issues – this giant melting pot of alien species congregating in hedonistic Vegas glory – gives way in Lost Vegas #3 to backstory (interesting nonetheless) and conflict development (also essential) at the expense of the appeal of the Lost Vegas locale itself. Lee shows us a full exterior shot of the ship (station?) in this issue, but we don't get to play much with that fascinating visual. It's a fine line in a mini series, I know. There's limited time and panel space to tell the story, and the conclusion of Roland's tale is fast approaching. This issue just lost a bit of the melting pot magic that made the first two so appealing. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh May 29, 2013

    Lost Vegas #3, like issues previous, isn’t bad, it’s just not breaking any new ground yet, content to be another space story about the last humans making good in the galaxy. That’s fine, but it doesn’t inspire or leave me wanting more, and with so many other space titles out there, this one feels a little lost. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring May 29, 2013

    LOST VEGAS is a science fiction series with some brilliant ideas that has the same problem many other science fiction series have, and that's throwing too much foreign ideas at the reader too quickly. There's this very fine balance with sci-fi where you need to over-explain things to a certain extent, but not too much where we feel overburdened with exposition. This issue did both of those things. It's a tough genre to master, but this is still a good book overall. It's compelling and there's a few concepts in here that I love. Read Full Review
