    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado May 13, 2014

    When Stray Bullets first hit the scene back in 1995 it captured the imagination of countless geeks "Lapham's character-driven opus was both violent and heartfelt. And with Stray Bullets: Killers we can fall in love all over again. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tres Dean May 15, 2014

    David Lapham's Stray Bullets is a monthly reminder of the fact that comics are capable of great things. Each new issue has been incredible in its own unique way. While the third issue doesn't quite reach the beautiful heights the second did, it still lives up to the series' reputation. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter May 23, 2014

    This was an incredibly entertaining issue, that makes Virginia all that much more human, if not altogether like able. The finger puns were an excellent way to insert the overt comic-like camp into this very serious series. This has not been the most satisfying issue, but it has been the most compelling. Bring on next month! Read Full Review

    Backwards Compatible - Paul Fiander May 12, 2014

    This story has nothing to do with issue one except in its tone, making Stray Bullets; Killers the perfect dip in and out series. That being said I would put Stray Bullets; Killers as probably the best warts and all storytelling on the shelves today. There is no romance or at times hope in-between the pages but when you put the issue down you feel like you have been through the emotional wringer and that makes this killers series essential reading.  Read Full Review

    "Stray Bullets: Killers" #3 is another great installment from a fun series that was gone for far too long. If you like suspense, crime noir, or thrillers -- or heck, just good storytelling, period -- you need to read "Stray Bullets." Trust me. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott May 14, 2014

    I don't know how many more issues of Killers there are slated to be; I was under the impression it was going to be a limited, but I haven't heard any more about that. Regardless, it's a great series. It doesn't quite have its own identity outside of the main book yet, but if it's more of the same Stray Bullets… is that really a bad thing? Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Mike Sains May 13, 2014

    On a whole, "Stray Bullets: Killers #3" is a strong issue in a very strong spin-off series, but one that can't help but feel a little out of place. While every story is its own, the two the preceded this one were so very dark that the fact that things get brighter is a turn in direction that I honestly didn't anticipate. While I'm not saying that this is the worst thing ever, the lightness of it all, combined with the overtly cartoon-like feel of how things play out is an eyebrow raiser for me. But this still remains one of the best crime noir books on the shelf and readers shouldn't hesitate to keep a look out for the next installment. Read Full Review
