    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez May 17, 2016

    X'ed # 3 moves the pacing and the characters up a few notches as we get into the meat of the main plot while also dealing with the truth behind our wonderful Ms. Lemonson. Pieces are falling into place and Patrick sets up this ridiculously cerebral and fun game exquisitely. The art is very much its own animal and Hayrula & Garbark make the art really express the originality of the concept while also allowing themselves to experiment with panel composition and art itself, allowing X'ed # 3 to have a wonderful distinct flavor to it. The tones and colors match the characters, mood and express the over all concept well. The line work shows us so many new and odd things wrapped together and make it visually make sense.

    Like previous issues, the art work by Doug Garbark is gorgeous. Even subtle at times, as more memories are revealed. I will the mind**** things are creepy, subtle, and filled with intriguing details. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Robert Anderegg May 16, 2016

    As a standalone issue, the reader will be left scratching their head about what's happening and why any of it matters. Even with the recap on the first page, there are so many characters and layers we miss in the first two issues (especially the second) that you do yourself a disservice by jumping in at this point. I recommend starting from the beginning. It's in issue 3, however, that the plot begins to thicken and revelations are made. For a thrilling and dark journey through the mind, pick up X'ed #3, in stores May 18th. Read Full Review
