The walls are closing in. The threads are converging. How long can Elle and Coop run before their luck finally runs out? Before they're finally captured? Just how far will the cartel go to reclaim Elle? All this and more, inside the spectacular third issue of POP!

    Reading this book is a little scary. Scary, because it's so honest and raw and it hits really close to home. For me, and for others that feel what Coop is feeling, this book is a terrifying and poignant meditation on our own lives through the fantastical scope of other's. That's exactly what makes it so good though, you can tell that Pires and Copland are putting themselves into this, you almost feel like you know them, and that's so deeply rewarding and touching that I come back time and time again for Pop. I'm sad that it's ending soon, but I'm happy that I experienced it at all. Read Full Review

    Now, I could be completely wrong and imagining all of these references.Given the chance, I would love to talk with Pires about POP. I find something in each issue that draws me in further.There are so many questions I have about the story that I know can't be wrapped up in the next issue.Since this is a mini-series, the end is imminent.While Ill be pleased to know what happens, Id like to see this as an ongoing series. If collected, its a book I would gift to anyone that enjoys conspiracy theories or dystopian societies.I think having a world where celebrities are created in a lab would qualify as being dystopian.Its certainly not ideal. This book is one I continually recommend. It's different from so many other stories that are being told. Read Full Review

    A big issue I have with setting aside the social critique how non-compelling the characters are. Elle is essentially a blank slate whose purpose has seemed to be a physical representation of the questions Pires is interested in asking, rather than a fully fledged human character, and Coop is Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Oct 21, 2014

    POP #3 is just like the last issue: poorly written, filled with weak characters, wasted potential, and has only some decent artwork to show for it. Admittedly, it does seem like it tried a bit more with its characters and pushing the plot forward a bit, but that isn't remotely enough for a book like this. I'm not sure how it's going to end next time, but I suspect it's not going to be pretty. Read Full Review
