    American Gods: Shadows #3 successfully expands the mythos in the series through past and current events. Shadow's visions of different gods as well as his wife's temporary return creates a more engrossing situation. And the origin of certain gods being revealed sheds light on how they acquire their power. Even though the banter is entertaining I do hope Wednesday and Shadow's story line speeds up a bit. But I am enjoying the ride. Read Full Review

    Overall, I'm enjoying this comic adaption of American Gods. P. Craig Russell has been very faithful to the original source material and Scott Hampton's art brings a whole new dimension to this wonderful story. I'm curious to see how they'll continue to deliver this classic tale, packaged neatly in a satisfying and enjoyable comic and whether it'll continue to engage and entertain. I've read this novel before but I never tire of this excellent story and seeing it wonderfully adapted by P. Craig Russell makes for a fresh new experience that I'm thoroughly enjoying.

    Much like last issue. It is surprising me just how different the comic book adaptation is to the TV series and how events seem to happen in a different order. Read Full Review

    This issue delivers much more fantasy than the previous two and is all the better for it. As Shadow gets more and more entangled in Wednesday's plans, the richness of Gaiman's world is becoming clearer. Hampton's art works well here and Simonson's interlude is rather classy. This is entertaining, thought-provoking and, at times, disturbing storytelling. If you don't mind the slow burn, it's well worth your time. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Kylee Sills May 29, 2017

    This was a fast-paced issue that really seemed to hustle the story along for the sake of getting there, with chapters three and four split by a 'Coming to America' sequence. Now with two other mediums to compare it to, it's hard not to feel like the comic is lacking something unfortunately. Read Full Review
