    More is revealed and still more is hidden, but things are building to a head as Unland beckons. I'm ready to buy my ticket to see what awaits. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland #3 is another excellent entry into what is currently one of my favorite series, and even though some answers are given, it still feels as if anything is possible, which only increases the overall creepiness of the story. Sir Edward continues to be an impressive character despite ignoring an obvious location during a critical moment, and one of the masterful things about this story has been the character interactions, which have been highly enjoyable throughout. Too bad I'll have to wait a month to get my hands on the next issue but so far it's definitely been worth the wait. Read Full Review

    Witchfinder has an unexplainable mesmerizing quality to it. Even when the characters are arguing for a whole issue, it manages to hold my attention. The feeling that each conversation has a purpose of building unrest and unraveling the mystery is something that will keep readers glued to the page. Read Full Review

    If you haven't checked out this series then you should catch up. It's very different from the other Mignolaverse titles, but it still feels at home in the universe. It's worth checking out even if you only like the mystery or the supernatural. Either way, it's worth a read. Read Full Review

    And as I've said before in my reviews for the first two issues, Tyler Crook is excellent on Witchfinder. It fits him like a glove, and I'm really enjoying his work. Just like I think of Tonci Zonjic as THE Lobster Johnson artist, I'm beginning to think of Tyler Crook as THE Witchfinder artist. This series isn't over yet and I'm already hoping another Crook-drawn Witchfinder will be announced, even if it's an eight-page short story in Dark Horse Presents. Read Full Review

    But despite this chapter falling short of the others, Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland remains a strong series. Let's hope that things getting shaken up a bit in next month's penultimate issue. Read Full Review

    Having said all that, the story is still entertaining. It makes good use of ominous tones and unreliable characters. I can sense that its headed for something terrific. And withFerreyra's perfect art, it's hard to feel too let down. Read Full Review

    While the regular crew is not writing this series, Newman McHugh & Crook are doing an excellent job. Not just in terms of mood, but also pacing dialog character and art. My only critical thoughts were the surprising lack of color on certain pages. The first time i've questioned the work of Mr. Stewart! Very good series, with no need to read the other BPRD books.
