    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jul 30, 2014

    For an issue that had barely an action, it kicked butt in every aspect. Ruckas story and emotion was drawn beautifully by Dauterman. Everything clicked this issue and this is by far the best of the series so far. Next month will be hard to top, but if there is a team that can do it, its Rucka and Dauterman. Read Full Review

    Greg Rucka and Russell Dauterman make creating comics seem effortless, and I sometimes forget stories can get this good. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson Aug 1, 2014

    This is a book I was genuinely not expecting to be as good as it is and I am glad that I was wrong; this is a fun comic book from two creators that seem to be having genuine fun making it. Enjoy the ride while you can. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jul 30, 2014

    There's a countdown at the end of this comic, and in a lot of ways, it made me think about the countdown this series has before it changes hands. Dauterman is continuing his ascent to the A-list with Thor, while Rucka takes a bow to get back to his novels. While John Layman is just as smart a writer as Rucka, I'll admit that this title won't feel the same without the talents of Dauterman to surprise and enthrall us. It's kind of like watching your child growing up - it's absolutely wonderful, but it doesn't last forever. So we better enjoy it while it lasts. Read Full Review

  • 9.0 - Stuart Conover Aug 2, 2014

    With how much praise I've been heaping on this issue, you may wonder why there isn't a perfect score here. Well aside from the lack of action that we were given, that you would expect from a road space trip between a father and son (where one is a pirate and the other is a mutant), the book just went by too quickly. I didn't do a page count so I'm not sure if it was just short but to be honest, it was too quick of a read. That being said, the art was spectacular, we were given answers to a few key questions, and a solid point to move forward from. Read Full Review

    There's nothing intellectual about the love between father and son, but it moves you in no less profound a way. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jul 31, 2014

    Cyclops #3 is as down to Earth as things can get for a space adventure. While you initially picked up this series to see what happens when younger Cyclops crosses paths with the Starjammers, you enjoy more the focus on just the bond between him and Corsair. You almost are left hoping it could easily just be them both together for the entirety. Read Full Review

    I've never been a terribly big Cyclops fan, and I don't know much about his dad, Corsair, but I trust in Greg Rucka to deliver a quality story, and he's yet to disappoint me. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 28, 2015

    With little in the way of action or actual plot progress here, Cyclops would seem to be an issue that would just kind of be empty in a way. But instead, we get what really draws me to comics when they do this as it's all about characters sitting around talking to each other, learning and growing. There's a lot of static material in the shared comics universes for obvious reasons, but getting a chance to get material like this, well written with the right bit of humor along the way, helps to provide both recap and insight into the characters and alter the dynamic of their relationships. All without it being done in the heat of battle with quips and plans to expand on it later. It's a solid read and one that sets the relationship between father and son in the right place to start moving forward. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jul 30, 2014

    I was starting to worry that this book was veering away from its central characters and going to focus more on the bizarre, galaxy-spanning adventures but this issue does a great job of grounding the characters, literally and figuratively. While theres a lot of recap to get through and some odd moments, its a good setup for future issues and, while I enjoyed this one a great deal, Im excited to see where this leads. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Sean Ian Mills Jul 31, 2014

    yclops is a very fun series with a unique little tale to tell. It stars two very human character, but in very weird situations. Rucka easily finds the humanity amidst the space piracy and time travelry. The first two issues focused on fun, but with Cyclops #3, he delves deep into the real emotion behind the relationship. The issue is over too quick, but Rucka nails the bond between father and son. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 31, 2014

    "Cyclops" #3 is an emotionally charged issue that works into the relationship between Corsair and Cyclops to great effect. Dauterman and Sotomayor bring their very best, helping visually elevate this comic book from others on the rack. Combining with the imagination of Rucka as he analyzes a father-son bond, the creative team has found a way to make Cyclops -- and younger Cyclops nonetheless -- a character I look forward to reading about every month. Regardless of readers' familiarity or interest in Cyclops or Corsair, this comic book is emotionally charged and easy to relate to, proving that any character can be an interesting character is handled the right way. And drawn by the right artist. Read Full Review
