    I thoroughly enjoyed this comic, with its mixture of fantasy and the modern world working together in a way that adds a unique twist to a well used trope. I'd expect nothing less from a writer of Lemire's caliber. Read Full Review

    Mike Deodato Jr has some beautiful art in this issue. One of the best moments is the interlude with the Berserker recounting his life of adventure and the family he's lost. Powerful visuals throughout. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 2, 2019

    I'm continuing to enjoy the heck out of this series with what it's doing and I can envision it in this large oversized hardcover collection where it'll shine even more with a full reading. Everything feels larger than life here with how Deodato presents the story and the scale of the scenes which just drives an interesting warmth to it all. His take on the title character is fantastic and I'm excited to see what else he's got up his sleeve with what's coming next, both in story and just the gorgeous layouts and framing. Lemire's story is moving at a good slow pace that's appropriate for it and each issue leaves me wanting more, which is a very good thing. This one is no exception. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Mateo Guerrero Sep 30, 2019

    Berserker Unbound #3 continues the series streak of restrained action with great potential. While it improves upon the flaws that held issue #2 back, it still suffers from dated monologues and a language barrier that prevents its characters from coming together. While Joe Cobb steals the show, Berserker has the chance to break free from Conan the Barbarian's shadow. With Deodato Jr's art and Lemire's talent for innovation, Berserker Unbound #3 gives the series all it needs to break the chains holding it back. Read Full Review

    It's a distracting jumble that would make it impossible to read a story with a bit of nuance, so it may be for the best that Berserker Unbound doesn't possess any. Read Full Review

    Another fantastic issue. Lemire's beautifully observed script pairs perfectly with Deodato's stunning art.

    Idiotic commentators have bemoaned the fact that there is a language barrier between Berserker and the old man, claiming that this stops the "characters from coming together." Clearly they aren't reading this very carefully because Lemire and Deodato devote several pages to the two men bonding over a drink, despite not speaking the same language, and then Berserker racing to rescue the old man from violent thugs, and then the two men again bonding over the fact that they have both lost their wife and child. Seriously, how on earth is this not the "characters coming together"?
