    Comics: The Gathering - Sean Tonelli Sep 4, 2013

    Catalyst Comix #3 continues the series hot streak. It's a psychedelic thrill-ride made greater by its originality and ability to throw old conventions out the window. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Sep 3, 2013

    Over all, given the smaller title that it is, Catalyst Comix #3 is rather successful. It has a strong identity and delivers on it, offering a gentle and easy read that still manages to remain entertaining throughout. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Sep 4, 2013

    I suspect the structure of this comic will make it difficult for it to hit a home run every month. Stories must ebb and flow, and when you've got three of them going at once, there's no telling if they'll balance between each other every time. That said, the overarching goal of the series is becoming clearer every issue with some tantalizing concepts at play. Stay tuned. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - FTG Contributor Sep 2, 2013

    Catalyst Comix#3is a mixed bag that gets progressively worse the deeper you go; the first story is very good featuring some great visual artwork and an interesting character approach to an annoying clich it is weighed down by a few out of place bouts of surrealist humor. The second story is entertaining a bit while being too short to be of any real substance with some surprisingly cartoony humor. The third story alienates any new readers to this universe of characters not just the series and fails to really accomplish any forward movement as a story. If you're a fan of the Catalyst Comixcrew and have been reading this series the first story is good while the others are “meh”. For new readers I would not recommend starting with this issue.

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Sep 4, 2013

    The issue ends with the lines, “Change Is Happening! Keep Reading!” Pretty safe bet anyone who made it this far certainly will. This series is fun and there is plenty in the story and characters to keep one interested. There is a strong feeling that there will be a payoff down the road. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 4, 2013

    Overall it's a decent issue. It's improved in some areas to the last issue, but it still bogs the reader down with narration rather than fully utilizing the artistic team. All three artists are incredibly talented and have fantastic styles, but they're chomping at the bit for something to really get at with their visuals. At this point I think you're either reading the series or you're not. I don't see it picking up any new readers which is a shame, but this is Joe Casey and Dark Horse's experiment and at the end of the day they'll decide if it was successful for them or not. For me it's just a decent read that I'll stick with for a bit longer. Read Full Review
