    AiPT! - David Brooke Feb 24, 2015

    Another thought provoking issue that should be devoured by those who want a challenge with enough character development to keep casual readers interested. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Chris Lear Dec 31, 1969

    They're Not Like Us is the punk rock of comic books. Bravo. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Mar 2, 2015

    Ganes work manages to remain as unique and stylish as always. He doesnt get to do anything too crazy this issue, but he displays great creativity in the portrayal of some of the groups powers. Including a particularly great moment that involves Syd using her mind control powers in a large crowd. I dont have too much to specifically say about Ganes art, however I feel its a perfect fit for the book, effectively communicating the modernity of the plot and working really well from a storytelling angle. Its a great fit and Im glad to see him lend a great deal of personality to the book. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Magen Cubed Feb 28, 2015

    With Stephesons clever scripting, Ganes finely detailed line work, and Bellaires minimalist color palettes, Theyre Not Like Us continues to be an intriguing spin on typical genre fare. While its cynicism is almost comical in its extremes, the title remains grounded through the strength of the minimalistic visual storytelling. This title isnt for everyone, but those that stick with it are likely to find an engaging reading experience. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Mar 5, 2015

    I generally try to be as objective as I can for these things, but I'm only human. Every now and then, a story makes a point I find so disagreeable that it infects my reading ever afterwards. Basically, I read something I personally don't like and it makes me so cranky that I end up hating the rest of the story. On the other hand, if I can manage to contain my nerd-rage to that one point, it can expose serious flaws that actually are worth talking about. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - StephenFn Feb 24, 2015

    So far this book is definitely keeping my interest and promoting critical thought and for that it is a worthy read. I'll be very interested to see where this one goes. Read Full Review

    GWW - Enrique Rea Feb 28, 2015

    Going into the make-or-break issue four I hope to see some more character development and a larger sense of where the book is going. The execution is great, but the substance needs more fleshing out. I want to like this title more, but I need more concrete reasons than the cynical premise and beautiful art. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Caleb Webster Feb 21, 2015

    While this book certainly has a few flaws at the time of its third issue, it adds a whole new level of intrigue to the saturated teens-with-abilities market in a more natural way than any of its competitors. Image Comics have done well to have this in their arsenal. With this book, you never know what's coming next. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Maxwell Majernik Feb 25, 2015

    I do know what this comic is trying to go for with the gods amongst men mindset and the ‘sheeple' the team is spatting on, but without the balance of heart and character depth it becomes increasingly harder and harder with each issue to stick with Syd. They're Not Like Us has one loose end to wrap up that will make for an exciting issue 4. If that doesn't knock it out of the park though, They're Not Like Us may continue this current bumpy ride for the rest of the opening arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Feb 25, 2015

    That probably sums it up best for me, this comic is desperate to be taken seriously, and knowing Stephenson's other work, it's clear that he can do better. Maybe They're Not Like Us will reach the heights of Nowhere Men. That would be really great, but until it does I'll just reread my Nowhere Men trade again. Read Full Review
