Daphne may have a lead on someone who can unravel the con she believes is being played on her mother. But is Daphne too late to prevent whoever it is from trying to take her under their wing? And does the mysterious spirit she calls Brother want to help her to save her mother? Or is he more interested in pushing Daphne to harness her seething rage?

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Mar 4, 2020

    Overall, Daphne Byrne #3 is a solid comic. I really am sympathetic to her plight. She has almost no one on her side. Her loneliness is what makes her vulnerable. That last panel is really something. Jones' art is creepy to the point of perfection. I am all in for issue #4 Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 4, 2020

    Kelly Jones has a beautiful art style that is perfect for this story and the use of darkness and shadows is perfect. Read Full Review

    Daphne Byrne #3 ratchets up the tension. With its characters established and the nature of its supernatural encounters better defined, things go from fearful to downright terrifying in these pages. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott Mar 5, 2020

    In my review of the first issue, I suggested that this is a series that might benefit from being read as an OGN rather than a serialised publication, but now that weve got to the third issue Im actually really enjoying it in this format, and whether its intentional or not, the break between issues has actually kept me coming back for more.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 4, 2020

    This probably qualifies less as a horror comic than any other member of the Hill House line, but that doesn't stop it from being a compelling story of a young girl's coming of age in a haunted town filled with dangers. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Mar 4, 2020

    Jones and Madsen on art deliver a very “old-school” horror vibe throughout. It’s not a style you see as frequently these days, which makes it unique in that sense. It’s a little on the dark side, the use of shadows is omnipresent, but that does add to the setting somewhat. Where it detracts a little is that I caught myself sometimes not knowing which character is which in a panel (with the exception of Daphne, who is very distinctive with her long, jet-black hair).

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Mar 4, 2020

    Of the Hill House Comic's line-up, Daphne Byrneis the weakest. An interesting start has fizzled out now that it's mid-way through its six-issue run and I'm unsure if I want to continue reading it. While Daphne Byrne #3ends on a cliffhanger of sorts that offers up a darker and more occult path in the narrative, it still hasn't sold me. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Mar 4, 2020

    I didn't even know if I should go through with what happened in the book. The overall story isn't the best but it's not terrible; it's the way that it's told that makes you not care. And the art seems to be so inconsistent from frame to frame, especially the characters looking like the same person. I will say that the classroom scene was pretty cool, and the best part of the issue. Read Full Review
