    But Why Tho? - Cidnya Feb 18, 2020

    This third issue steers the story back into the cinematic storytelling that made the first issue stand apart from other comics on the stand. The blending of Lemire's tight noir script, the muted atmosphere as drawn and colored by Zonjic, and the ease of the lettering done by Wands effectively make Skulldigger and Skeleton Boy #3 an enthralling series that everyone should pick up.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 19, 2020

    I've really been enjoying this series since the start with its exploration of a new avenue and it has me wanting a lot more. I want to see Crimson Fist in his prime. I want to see a lot more of how Skulldigger operates. I want to see if we're going to get him and Skeleton Boy as a real team hitting the streets and getting things done their way. And I'm anxious to see how the next couple of issues play out in resolving this story as it could be bad for almost all of the characters involved. Lemire continues to do a great job in expanding this world while Zonjic was a fantastic choice to bring it to life. I can't wait to get more and re-read it as a whole. Read Full Review

    Even when the series is toying with overly familiar ideas and twists from superhero comics, it's delivered in such a compelling fashion that the anticipation of #4 will be a potent force for readers young and old. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Feb 23, 2020

    If you go into Skulldigger and Skeleton Boy #3 prepared for a pretty dark vision of humanity, with most of the police corrupt, a bit of Stockholm Syndrome with the boy Skulldigger has taken in, and a police detective who is so wedded to the job its destroying her actual relationship, then you'll probably enjoy it. I know I did. Read Full Review
