    Pariah #3 suffers from the same problems as the first issue with the lack of explanation of how this situation originated and the nature of the vitros. A few characters do stand out this time around as they work to solve the immediate dilemma of someone attacking the world economies and putting everyone on the station in danger due to retaliation. It's still not enough to make this series engrossing so I'm hoping the final development this issue opens the door to the explanations that are sorely needed by the next issue. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Mar 31, 2014

    All in all, the second issue of Pariah is nowhere near as strong as the web series, or even the first issue of the series. It's not a total loss, and it just screams potential. And maybe that's why I ended up scoring it so low, because I may just be annoyed at the fact that the potential that this book has is never quite reached. Warner, Gelatt, and Weldele could have a masterpiece on their hands. I wouldn't rule this series out quite yet, as a rocky start isn't indicative of what could come later in the series. Unfortunately, despite it practically screaming potential, the second issue of Pariah doesn't do much to solidify it as a great, or, quite frankly, even a very good series. Read Full Review

    Im sure this book will run at least six issues with the same creative team, but I truly hope that the art team is changed out, or audiences will give up on reading this great story. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Mar 27, 2014

    While I enjoyed this issue, it made it clear that this series isn't a must read. It's something that I may come and go on, but it hasn't won me over as a steady reader. Maybe that will happen with the next issue, but that will depend on which character we're following then. That in fact might be its greatest strength and weakness; by not having a steady narration from any one character for a duration of time, it might in fact make it harder for readers to latch on to it. At the same time it might be what keeps the narration fresh. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Blair Stevenson Mar 25, 2014

    With another 6 issues to go, I feel that this book may be a little TOO slow-burning for my tastes. The absence of Issue-1s narrator Hermans laid back, sarcastic and disdainful attitude leaves me underwhelmed by Issue #2. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Michael Moccio Mar 27, 2014

    Perhaps fans of the original series will see more to this than what's on the surface, but to new readers Pariah is inaccessible and hard to get into without the prior knowledge. Read Full Review
