    Manapul delivers some fantastic art throughout the issue. The characters and tone are perfectly realized visually and the trippy visuals of the world continue to keep me engaged. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 21, 2021

    Clear continues to be an exciting mix of mystery, strong character work, and future tech that is clever, believable, and on a certain level, downright frightening. Its blend of noir detective work and science fiction is so addictive it's a story that feels like it could sustain an entire universe. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 28, 2021

    Clear continues to do some interesting things even while playing to a familiar beat. I get a flavor of the “I, Robot” movie here in some ways with what it's doing in terms of a science fiction mystery plot that involves new technology, death, family, and so forth. It's a little chaotic in how it reads on a monthly-ish basis when you get down to it, but it'll be something that when you borrow and read the whole run, or get the trade, it'll flow together a lot better. It's the give and take of this kind of release model, frankly. I like what Snyder is doing overall and Manapul's artwork has some really gorgeous sequences throughout, so it's a fun and enjoyable read that will be a very different experience when it's all available.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 22, 2021

    Clear #3 is cyberpunk done right. Snyder and Manapul aren't reinventing the wheel with this one, but they are still killing. They do a fantastic job of bringing the world to life, the most essential part of cyberpunk. The cliffhanger ending is perfect for this one and will keep readers coming back. Read Full Review

    The explanation for Dunes' helmet handprints comes dangerously close to being over-the-top melodramatic, but the grounded tone helps rein it all in for another engrossing issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Dec 24, 2021

    Clear #3 manages to continue the disappointing trend this series is on, where they continue to ignore the big thing they focused so much on in the first issue, leaving this feeling like just another detective story. Read Full Review
