    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter May 7, 2014

    I found this month's issue to be very brief, but that is just the consequence of the highly visual storytelling. The dialogue, especially dealing with Cormac and Veil is almost negligible, as it is only a few brief sentences and a a hearty helping of arcane gibberish. The transformation feels both rushed and very drastic considering the early nature of the story, but I'm hoping the writer has a plan for that. The best parts of this issue were certainly the magic bits; the rat like familiars, compulsions, and the final binding/working that effects our awkward protagonist. The brevity of the issue actually enhanced the experience, creating the mood of a situation spiraling out of control. I can't wait to see just how far the spiral goes. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Ani Gonzalez May 6, 2014

    This story is beautifully created to be a constant tension source for the reader, it is slow paced but the action is there when necessary to surprise and leave you wondering what is going on for real. I cannot say how much the art style helps this story, the shadows, the coloring they are all perfect and Veil # 3 keeps making me wanting more. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - Timothy Merritt May 22, 2014

    And it's in this issue that Rucka's story really begins to open up, leaving readers with a taste of something in the story's climax that will at least have this writer rushing to pick up issue four on June fourth. With three issues into a five issue mini, it's been a slow burn towards this explosion, but it's certainly paid off. Read Full Review

    Veil #3 is an excellent issue that moves the series forward with fluid storytelling and captivating artwork while making the true identity of Veil even more intriguing with its revelations. There aren't any answers given regarding the intentions of the Cormac or the group that initially hired him other than it being for some sinister reasons. However I suspect we will be getting those answers soon enough and I'll be looking forward to them. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Mai May 9, 2014

    Overall the story was short but sweet. Not candy-hearts sweet but, bloody rats and red-blood fog sweet. The art was amazing and did a great job setting the tone. I'm always eager for more with this one. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng May 9, 2014

    "Veil" #3 is worth picking up just for the visuals. Fejzula and Rucka create an atmosphere that feels exalted and debauched at the same time, the perfect combination for the witchcraft and greed that drive the action. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 7, 2014

    Veil has certainly been captivating with its art style in the first two issues and that definitely carries through with this installment. In some ways, it's even more captivating because of what we see with Cormac and the kind of approach he brings to the page. The story is getting a bit larger and we're touching on a few more characters here, but it's coming down to the immediate with Cormac and Veil and that has a lot of potential. With this five issue miniseries being the first of a potentially larger run of books out there and stories, it's easy to view this as simply the origin story told over a bit of time and to engage in it that way without expecting any huge revelations or anything. There's definitely a lot to like and it's coming together well, with is really helped in a big way by Fejzula's artwork. That continues to be worth the price of admission alone to pore over.

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson May 8, 2014

    While there's still a while to go in terms of discovering the mystery of Veil, the quality of storytelling on display make this issue an enjoyable read as it brings more elements into the story to keep the fire of the mystery burning. That's a fire that wouldn't be burning without Toni Fejzula, mind you, as his artwork really steals the show and brings amazing depth to the writing of Greg Rucka by filling out the details of the world through the panels. Mixing that with almost unparalleled storytelling ability makes Fejzula an artist who many, many people should have their eye on right now. Read Full Review

    Veil continues to intrigue though the lack of interaction from Veil herself let this particular issue down. It still however merit's a recommendation. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards May 7, 2014

    Veil #3 remains to be an alright comic. The story is progressing fine enough and the writing and artwork are competent, but it's not particularly engaging and the characters are almost non-entities with bare bones "personalities." With us having passed the half way mark, the mini-series is really going to have to pick things up if its ever going to make a real impact or impression. Read Full Review
