    Coverremains one of the more remarkable books I've read this year. An instant classic built from a blend of spiritualism and realism, the absurd and the commonplace. Read Full Review

    Cover is one of the better ongoing titles by Bendis. It has a unique plot and suspenseful pacing. Art and colors leave much to the imagination and at times feel like an incomplete rough draft. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Alex McDonald Nov 24, 2018

    Cover #3 is odd. On the one hand its just one of the most beautiful books DC is putting out right now. On the other its one of the most poorly written. It feels as though Bendis has a key idea of what he wants the story to be and is relying on Mack far too heavily to get it across. Bendis defends writing comics while also venting about irritating things in the industry told through a spy story with stupidly good art isnt a great title, but so far thats exactly what Cover is.

    While Mack's art is gorgeous to look at, the comic suffers from a major narrative problem. Read Full Review

    THE GOOD:

    -Pretty sure I'm going to keep adding points for David Mack's art. This issue didn't impress me as much as the last in terms of art, so I'll add only 1/2 a point.

    -I really liked the opener to the issue. Ninja Sword Odyssey is a comic that I feel I would actually read, were it real.

    -I liked the Sad-Astronaut too.

    -I have liked the format of the last two issues a lot, where Essad is interrogating Max, as he recalls his work with Julia to him.

    -I found this to be a very funny issue. I laughed a lot.

    -Bendis just perfectly summed up the magic of comic cons and the importance of fans. I was really blown away by that monologue.

    -It's nice to see the posi more
