    Comic Bastards - Daniel Vlasaty May 3, 2017

    The Dregs has always resonated strongly with me, as you'll know if you've read my reviews of the previous issues. And this issue is no different. It's just a solid story with a lot of layers. When I first read this issue, I was left wanting more, but as I sat here thinking about it for a while, I think it's great. I don't have any complaints about it, or The Dregs, at all. Except maybe the fact that there is only one issue left. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield May 5, 2017

    The Dregs #3 is one of the best genre books youll find and its also one of the best comics youll read period. Its not because it nails the genre so well (even though it does), its because of the level of craft that flows through every page and the humbling humanity that stares back at you as you read it. Gentrification. The discarded. The walls we build and the reasons we build them. The way we forget that everyone, even the dregs, has a story. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Chris Campbell May 3, 2017

    If you are not reading this book you should be. The story is immersive and the art is some of the best of the year. Read and then reread and take a step back and let it all sink in. There is so much more here than just another comic book. There is truth to be revealed in the story and in a deeper meaning of the book as a whole. Take the time to investigate it just as Arnold is; just dont let yourself get fooled by what is on the surface. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea May 4, 2017

    'The Dregs' is certainly one of those hidden gems that you find from word-of-mouth and cherish as your secret treasure. It deserves so much more than to be a selfish delight and should be shouted from the rooftops. Here's an expertly told story from a passionate team of writers and artists that have more on their minds with a socially aware comic that works as hard-boiled pulp. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Apr 30, 2017

    Honestly though, theres only so many different ways I can praise a series that feels like it was written and drawn specifically for me, but this is pure poetry, man. A heady blend of hard-boiled detective fantasy and stark, unapologetic reality, The Dregs is hands-down one of the best books Ive read in a long, long time. Read Full Review

    Buy this book. The art is phenomenal and collaborates with the story in such a way that it exacerbates the plight of the protagonist. Seriously buy this book. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes May 3, 2017

    For me, a self admitted superhero fan, this book is an odd experience. At first glance, it is easy to dismiss as just another mature book with less than explosive artwork. Yet, it is actually the comic book version of a good cup of coffee. It just needs time to percolate.So read this book; put it down; reflect and read again. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 4, 2017

    The Dregs continues to be a solid albeit unusual detective story.  Its one flaw is that it gave away the twist in the very beginning and now we're waiting for the main character to catch up.  It's a helluva hook though, so I'm not sure how the comic would read without that knowledge.  Some of the leaps Arnold makes are a bit too convenient, like he's putting pieces together that aren't all there to begin with, but he's an interesting enough character to make it all work.
