    IGN - Dan Phillips Jul 29, 2009

    In my review of last week's Amazing Spider-Man #600, I mentioned how the book included so much material and entertainment value for five bucks, it all but defied and rose above any attempt at criticism. Tales of the Corps #3 is the opposite type of book: it delivers so little, it's hard to talk about anything other than its cover price. Other than the chance to see Ivan Reis' un-inked pencils, the book barely offers anything, and nothing that it promises. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Jul 30, 2009

    I said to myself as the next page was the penciled version of FCBD: Blackest Night #0. Quickly flipping through the white and gray pages I hoped for something more, at least one other story but my hopes were crushed as I reached the end of the issue. This issue was really coasting on an average level until I reached the reprint. With only eighteen pages of story and twelve pages of reprints for $3.99 it is impossible to pass this issue off as a buy unless Arisia or Kilowog is your favorite character. At the very least a common theme ran through both stories. Each character lost someone important to them and each will probably return in the blackest of night. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Ray Hilario Jul 29, 2009

    There aren't a lot of redeeming qualities with Tales of the Corps #3; but since it's the 3 out of 3, you may as well get it. Read it once, slip it back in the bag and board, and marvel at it for a couple of seconds when you connect all three covers. Then pray that Blackest Night #2 comes out already. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jul 30, 2009

    There are a few momentary flashes of greatness, particularly in the opening story. Unfortunately, the overall lack of depth in the issue and the senseless reprint can't be overcome. In the end, the bad simply outweighs the good, making this the Burrito Book for the week. Read Full Review
