What’s a girl supposed to say when she finally comes face to face with her murderous father in space prison? Crush better hurry up and figure it out, because all Lobo wants to talk about is…his feelings? Gross! But maybe the Main Man really did change his stripes. Maybe group therapy with the other inmates really worked. Maybe this isn’t all just some elaborate ploy Crush hasn’t quite figured out yet- Aw, c’mon. You’re not actually buying this therapy crap, are you?

    At almost halfway through the series, there's been surprisingly little interaction between the leads, but I'm excited to see how it plays out. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Aug 3, 2021

    In this issue, Nahuelpan uses traditional drawings that are heavy on character form and expression. The heavy use of blues and greens make the environment feel very alien. And it makes the orange inmate uniforms stand out in a dramatic manner relevant to the tale. I found the illustrations to be very engaging and fun to view. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Aug 4, 2021

    Crush and Lobo #3 finally gets the two leads of the series in the same room together, and Mariko Tamaki and Amancay Nahuelpan give the two Czarnians wonderful chemistry before blowing it all to hell. The space prison is a fun setting, and this issue has plenty of humor and fisticuffs to go with the attempts at heart-to-hearts Read Full Review

    Crush & Lobo has been excellent thus far, and while this issue has to do some heavy lifting to keep the story moving at a decent pace, it seems set to only get more wild from here on out. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 3, 2021

    Crush and Lobo #3 continues the series trend of being the sharpest looking superhero book on the stands with even more attitude. Both characters are intriguing in their own right, but Tamaki continues to flesh them out in interesting if subtle ways. Paired with Nahuelpan's incredibly detailed line work and in-your-face action, it's a match made in heaven. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 3, 2021

    Crush & Lobo #3 might have a twist that everyone saw coming from a mile away, but at least we got it.  Even with that, this book has a lot of filler, but I hope that the next issue starts to get things rolling.  This book continues to look great, and for what it's worth, this was my favorite issue so far.
