    While the last issue set this up, this issue delivers action, suspense and plot progression. Good stuff, especially for those sci-fi fans out there. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Sep 27, 2014

    Fernando Bald's is back on the artwork with Nick Filardi on colours, Nate Piekos of Blambot on letters and the cover by Gabriel and Matthew Wilson. As mentioned before, this issue is quite the claustrophobic one and the characters are all fidgeting about it all the time. Fernando did a great job with the body-language and with the general characterwork while the same could be said of Nick for his own tasks. Their monster design is also fairly ruthless and shocking and awe-inspiring, which is the kind of thing that I was really looking forward to on this blasted cursed land. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Christopher Bennett Sep 30, 2014

    In summary:The crew's time in the Maelstrom looks to be ending soon, and things are coming to a head. People have made their peace and dicks have received their comeuppance. Where they go from here is anyone's guess. I blazed through this issue and overall it's a very smooth, very enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Sep 24, 2014

    One of the characters is the kind of misguided backstabber that readers just hope, and know, will get his comeuppance, but when he does it comes just a little too close to a scene from one of the films that this story borrows from. At least the scene is connected to a story advancement that reveals just what happened to the Vanguard in the series' first issue. The character lapses are small enough and therefore forgivable, and largely inconsequential to the overall story. "Deep Gravity" #3 succeeds because it takes everything that's scary about deep space and comfortably fits it into one comic. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nina Bird Oct 29, 2014

    Deep Gravity features space and monsters and has enough action to keep me interested for now, but the writers need to work on the characters a bit more. All action without characters to sustain the plot makes for a pretty weak story. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Oct 13, 2014

    A super action sequence can't overcome a convenient reveal and art that looks four decades old. I'm going to see this to end because the story does have some merit. Read Full Review
