    Outright Geekery - Tom Guilfoyle Aug 16, 2016

    This issue is a great read and a must for fans of Lovecraftian monsters and it mythos. The way they blend their reality with ours to create a whole new sense of reality is superb. The writing and art make this comic feel like a modernized noir crime tale, as a result making this an intelligent and enjoyable tale that adds to the Lovecraftian mythos. How this tale ends is anyone's guest but what I do know is that I will be glad I was there for the ride. Read Full Review

    With its fusion of the police procedural, monsters and cosmic horror, fans of 1950s horror and crime comics, Lovecraft, and television series such as True Detective, X-Files, Kolchak: The Night Stalker and Twin Peaks will adore this clever, witty and comprehensive comic. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Aug 25, 2016

    This comic is doused in nostalgia and vintage tones, it's dull at times and stupendously bright at times too. The spectrum and range of colours are a spectacle to look at and match theweird storyline seamlessly. It's a police procedural story mixed with horror, monsters, and aliens. If you're into those things, then readWeird Detective. You won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Elliott Cole Aug 16, 2016

    Weird Detective #3 is a firmly Lovecraftian offering with plenty of content to appeal to any fans of the horror or crime genres. Many others have failed attempting to blend the cosmic with the ordinary, but Van Lente succeeds by never letting these competing perspectives cancel one another out. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - christopher scott author Aug 23, 2016

    The end panel by artist Guiu Vilanova stresses the weird out in this strangely awesome title. The art is a nice balance between the strange Lovecraftian like creatures and crime noir. Vilanova manages to contrast them in superb fashion, as things get increasingly weird with each issue. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Lyla Saudi Sep 8, 2016

    Espionage (more like house snooping and google searches), murder, monsters, a sarcastic pet cat (still my favourite) and an explosion of fireworks, this issue has it all and is the stand out for me in this series so far. So hurry up and find all of that loose pocket change because this is one issue you dont want to miss out on! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Aug 22, 2016

    I still don't get what the Hollywood guy's part in all this is. If Van Lente is planting seeds, then they sure don't feel like something that will grow into the main narrative. But once you get past that (and Fayez's situational obliviousness), Weird Detective #3 finishes things up as a solid entry in what's turning out to be a fantastic series. Read Full Review
