    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Dec 10, 2013

    On the whole, this issue is the strongest issue of Hinterkind yet. It slows down the pace a little from the frantic pace that the book maintained for the first two issues in order to flesh out the world and mythology a little bit, in an entertaining couple pages of dialogue that answer a couple questions about what's really going on, but leave plenty unanswered. However, the pace picks up in the book's second half, and the plot makes a couple strides forwards, making this issue more than just an issue of exposition and set up. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Dec 4, 2013

    Hinterkind continues to improve little by little with each issue. The writing has improved immensely over time and the comic is starting to become engrossing. If you were not sure of this comic before, now is the time to definitely try it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Oscar Bergeron-Oakes Dec 7, 2013

    Hinterkind #3 is an excellent read and a major improvement over the second issue. Edginton stepped up to the plate and delivered a much stronger story that seriously thickens the plot of his fantasy tale. Meanwhile, Trifogli and Peter continue to exceed expectations by creating a rich world full of magnificent monsters and myths. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Taylor Lilley Dec 10, 2013

    From basic survival to conquistadorial "one elf to rule them all" shenanigans, what sells the various motives of Hinterkind's cast is their affectless characterisation. In neither the acting nor the dialogue do the Hinterkind reference their own outlandishness, there are no awkward self-consciousnesses, nor any "noble savage" style elevation. Everybody in this comic is flawed, whatever their provenance, flawed, scarred, and oppressed by somebody. So it's just as well artist Trifogli invites readers in with humane expressions, and backgrounds bathed in golden light (courtesy of Cris Peter's perfect palette). Together, Edginton and Trifogli manage to pull off enjoyable complexity, offering a paradise which runs more like purgatory. It's a place with serious potential. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Erik McAlister Dec 5, 2013

    Overall, I feel like this has been the best issue so far, but it still seems like the carrot is just dangling in front of our faces while we're being lead along with the promise of great things. I really hope that the waiting that we're going to be doing isn't for much longer, and that there is in fact, something big planned for us. It really does feel like something awesome is going to happen soon. I can almost taste it, and I'd like to think that I would never let myself be led along in vain like this. So my final verdict: realistically, I don't know. Go to your local shop and pick this up" or don't. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Dec 10, 2013

    Too bland and plodding to really make the most of its interesting points. Hinterkind is making itself ever worthier of landing on the Drop List. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 6, 2013

    I want to like "Hinterkind" but after three issues I'm unable to work up the interest to find out what happens next to all of these characters. You don't have to necessarily like them all, but you at least need to get your attention grabbed enough to invest some sort of desire to follow them month after month. For now, though, I'm in the position where it's actually more dangerous to be bored than to find the book out and out bad. Barring some great word of mouth, I just don't care enough to pick up issue #4. Read Full Review
