    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jul 20, 2015

    This is obviously a very personal series for Bennett, and her connection to the text easily becomes the reader's. For the second issue in a row, Bennett delivers a knockout punch of a monologue and plenty of interesting ideas to keep it company. It's definitely a Hamlet more than a MacBeth, full of moral quandaries and uncertainty, but that criticism seems poised to be answered. The art is as worthy a successor to John Byrne's as you could ask and the characters feel like the Claremont classics. Years of Future Past #3 feels a little young at times, but I'm not sure whether that word can hold a judgement. After all, youth is the entire point. Years of Future Past continues to be both a surprisingly effective follow up to a theoretically untouchable classic as well as a fantastic examination of what being an X-Man really means. I expect that this will be a controversial issue within the miniseries' run but, for me, it more than held its own. Read Full Review

    Years of Future Past #3 is perhaps the best issue of the series yet. The book continues to be dragged down by an overabundance of unnecessary text and plot twists, but it finally manages to add a more complex emotional core to the series, giving the book something resembling stakes.

    Comicsverse - Tom Bacon Jul 17, 2015

    All in all, YEARS OF FUTURE PAST #3 continues the series' strange attempt to be all things to all men, mixing a fun and youthful plot with an end-of-the-world scenario. For all its inherent flaws, it's a tremendously fun read, with some sterling moments of characterisation. Read Full Review

    This is the creative team that should be on Uncanny X-Men! Marvel dropped the ball on this one. Bennett and Norton make truly amazing X-Men comics.

    You know for a wordy comic nothing is really resolved. It's one frantic thing after another. You go from Lockheed to finding out the big secret to landing up rebelling again. It's all a little frantic and that's why I think there is the problem with this comic. If the book just slowed for a second started to resolve at least one issue instead of just adding more on top we can go somewhere.
