He makes a decision that will change his life and it's something everyone dreams of whether they're young or old. The visuals are terrific, with appropriate scares and thrills. This is the book you give a reader who wants something other than spandex clad superheroes. Read Full Review

    I really enjoy Lollipop Kids a whole lot and this installment, though a few months after the second, builds wonderfully on what came before while still being fairly accessible to anyone coming in just now. This book gives Nick a greater sense of where he came from and what kind of history that he's connected to in a way that he likely hadn't felt before, which he notes a little bit. Adam Glass is developing this with a really rich design that I'm excited to see more of while Diego Yapur is capturing all of that in a fantastic way with so much detail, so many neat layers, that I just want to pore over it panel by panel for an afternoon. Definitely recommended. Read Full Review

    "Lollipop Kids" #3 hooks the reader hard with an action-packed first scene. Things slow down considerably from that point forward, heavy on exposition and worldbuilding, but with a big reveal at the end, it does an excellent job of setting up the issues to come. Read Full Review

    So if youre on the fence about dropping this series, or perhaps curious to find out if this series is worth returning to, this issue definitely proves its staying power. Not only that, but it the fact that the authors are able to grow and refine their story suggests that every issue is only going to get stronger from here, and itll be a confident trade buy too. It seems like AfterShock has yet another hit on its hands. Read Full Review
