    This is the best issue of the series, and with all the open doors and pathways, the last two are guaranteed to be even more in-depth and action packed. Read Full Review

    ABBOTT #3 keeps the pace of past issues, with just as much passion and intrigue. Ahmed Saladin gives readers more tantalizing hints, and Sami Kivel and Jason Wordie give the comic its dramatic edge in the detailed artwork. Read Full Review

    Grounded writing and art make "Abbott" far more than the sum of its parts. Read Full Review

    The panel layout for "Ball of Confusion"/Abbott #3 is exquisite. There will be moments where the images or even the panel arrangements themselves will provide powerful cues to the reader that can reveal clues to the mystery in advance of the protagonist's discovery. This is the kind of stuff that makes us feel like little kids reading our first comic under the cover of darkness with a dying flashlight. 4.5/5. Read Full Review

    It's a promising climax that pushes this miniseries forward into its final couple of issues (and hopefully an ongoing series). Read Full Review

    While the flaws in Abbott #3 are not unique to the issue in particular, they are becoming increasingly more cumbersome. Common complaints such as overcrowding with word bubbles and inconsistent panel design quality are starting to pile up. However, the overall quality of the rest of the work gives me hope that these problems can be fixed. Which is good, because when Abbott works, it really works. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 31, 2018

    Abbott #3 is another frustrating issue of a book that could be truly great but falls short at pivotal moments. I cant outright say to stay away from this comic, but I cant recommend it either. If youve been enjoying it so far or the flaws I list dont seem like big killers, feel free to check it out. If neither of those are you give it a pass. Read Full Review

    Saldin Ahmed is a brilliant comic writer and as his name grows many will look back on this book as a great entry in his career. I love this series. I am not sure if it was always intended to be a mini but I hope it doesn't stay that way in the future. Abbott is a remarkable character and her Detroit backdrop continues to be vivid and real. We finally have a face to our villain in this book and Ahmed has set up a leading hero who everyone else has determined as a threat before she is aware of what power she has. The darkness of the art continues to be solid. I love the pictures. I have seen criticism of word panels but I saw no problem with it and I was engrossed from start to finish.
