    Nuclear Family is the kind of book that I almost want in novel form because I just want to devour it and get to the secrets that it holds. Phillips's script is taking us through things pretty naturally but I want to just burn through it and see what's next. Shaheen and Mettler definitely make this all the more intense because of how the book looks as they capture the time period and style so well and it's so appropriate for the material itself. I'm thoroughly enjoying this book and all the teases it's giving us but hope that there are some real answers coming soon so that it's not just a constant tease. This feels like it's shaping up to be either a strong run that could go for a good bit or a really good Twilight Zone style miniseries that just takes us on one hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    "Nuclear Family" #3 keeps the story moving with decent, if irregular, craft from the whole team. Read Full Review

    The third installment of Nuclear Family doesn't quite live up to the first two. A lot of slight misses add up to a very average chapter. Read Full Review

    Nuclear Family #3 offers readers some cinematic, fast-paced Cold War drama. Despite a few stumbles shared between the art and plot, this series continues to show promise. Read Full Review
