    If I ma honest, I am a tad sick of alternative universe stories that are out of continuity. With that said, this series has been fun from the get go and I am really looking to see how it plays out over the remaining issues and thanks to the quality of the work from Messrs Tynion IV, Rosenberg and Schmidt, this book has a real bite to it! #sorrynotsorry Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Dec 28, 2021

    Across the writing, art, and lettering of DC vs. Vampires #3, theres a clear indication the book is a pitch-perfect case of a comic that knows how to have fun. The series takes the premise of Secret Invasion but with vampires, and lets Otto Schmidt go wild with kinetic action and stunning character designs. In a world of comics that feel the urge to try and prove themselves in the field of serious artistic endeavors, it's refreshing for a book to take a breather and be a fun, pulpy adventure across a massive landscape of iconic characters. That tone and commitment to the premise alone sells DC vs. Vampires and is only heightened by the talent behind it. Read Full Review

    DC vs. Vampires is making good on its potential so far. The biggest trick will be to keep this storyline engaging through nine more issues. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 28, 2021

    DC vs. Vampires #3 ups the stakes and shows the Vampires are way ahead of the heroes at this point. There are some shocking twists in this issue, but James Tynion and Matthew Rosenberg also do a good job of setting up some feels. The pacing and the excellent art by Otto Schmidt make this one easy to recommend. Read Full Review

    It's creepy, tense, and we're only a quarter of the way through"which makes me pretty sure that some very dark times are ahead for the survivors of the vampire plague so far. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 29, 2021

    DC vs. Vampires #3 is a hell of an issue that keeps readers guessing as to what's going to happen next. There's enough twists and turns for a miniseries let alone one issue. What's great is, the issue, and series as a whole, has stuck to a psychological aspect that has made the comics entertaining. It easily could have been just one giant action fight but instead it keeps things in the horror space leaving you to constantly guess who might be a vampire and who might wind up dead.

    We're only three issues in, but DC vs. Vampires #3 keeps the pedal to the metal while capturing the heart and soul of its characters in a genuine way. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 28, 2021

    Schmidt delivers some great art. The style of the art is perfect for the fast paced nature of the vampire threat as well as the darkness of the plot. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Carl Bryan Jan 6, 2022

    The premise is great and I still believe that this is going to be a strong 12 issue run, as DC Vs. Vampires #3 sets up the beginning of a clear league of Super Vampires being assembled. This is a good vampire story, though, as Matthew Rosenberg, James Tynion IV, and Otto Schmidt are crafting a great tale. Read Full Review

    This issue ups the ante as we see the two major factions against the Vampires intersect for the first time, the Batfamily and the Arrow Family. I am excited to see the groups mingle more but the underlying distrust the vampires are sowing is making this series very captivating. The art is amazing and the moments between Batman and Zayna are very strong. The cliffhanger of this issue is sure to have disastrous ramifications so I am pumped for the next issue.

    This was a whole lot of fun. I don't know if this idea can sustain twelve issues, but I'll certainly be reading them.

    This issue was not so good like the previous two, but it was also really fun. Don't like the art very much, but the directions this issue take made me curious.

    Is is a nice issue, the biggest set back is that Tom taylor did this in DCeased at much larger scale so this feels a little less exciting, I mean Tyrion is trying hard but making Wonder Woman a vampire and touring justice league against batman. the little fight between Dinah and Robin was kind of confusing I am like why this two people in exact. still a nice issue so a 6

    First issue I didn't like here, this was a jumbled mess that makes no sense.

    So if you are still reading this series, it is because you are a Batman fan. OK. I am good with that. But the writers' portrayal of Nightwing and Batgirl is off-the-chart out-of-character (again). You have Dick Grayson trained as a detective and Barbara Gordon one of the greater analytical minds, with writers showing them behave as hormone-driven teens (which they obviously are not - get a room already). Just Dumb, writers. I am sort of hopeful that this is being led by Matt Rosenberg, because despite my problems with James Tynion, not the best way for him to finish his DC career.

    But Batman, as always, is the man with the plan, and clearly the lead protagonist. (They croak Batman and it is lights-out for this otherwise unlikabl more
