    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Aug 14, 2019

    Event Leviathan is Brian Michael Bendis first big crossover event since moving to DC comics, and it doesnt disappoint. The six-issue thriller hits its midpoint with this issue and still has secrets to reveal. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Aug 16, 2019

    Artist Alex Maleev knows those sorts of characters, and Bendis' style of storytelling (Daredevil, Moon Knight). He's also an experienced renderer of super-powered tales alongside Bendis (New Avengers). It explains why Maleev works well here. His action sequences can sprawl, focus, or shake the page as needed. Scenes of quiet discourse or verbal spars are just as varied. Measured precisely against Bendis' words in setting the stage, they create the mood. The impact of words. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Aug 14, 2019

    Event Leviathan may not be everyone's idea of a marquee event book and it still has a lot of room to fail, but to this point, it's been fun and effectively told. Bendis and Maleev are doing work that stands up next to some of their best team-ups, and the mystery has some legs. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 19, 2019

    Back to square one, the heroes compare notes again to try and figure out who exactly Leviathan is and what their endgame might be. Amanda Waller obviously knows more about what's going on than she has shared with the heroes, but the question is will she live long enough to share her intelligence (and would she, even if she gets a chance)? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 14, 2019

    The final few pages of the issue are reason enough for some optimism that the story is about to move forward in a big way as Amanda Waller resurfaces. If this does move the story along, Event Leviathan will get the boost it needs. There's still time for Bendis and Maleev to work their magic, but the next few issues are key. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 14, 2019

    This issue continues the standing around and talking trend that we've gotten from the previous issues and really does little to further the story until a forced connection gets us there.  Still, not much to write home about here and the art continues to muddy and something I'm not crazy about.  On a positive note, if you're looking for Jason Todd kicking more ass than he has in years, maybe this is the issue for you.

    With no real, substantive discussion about leads in Event Leviathan #3, the DC Universe's clandestine organizations, or any actual feelings regarding what is going on, Event Leviathan'smystery is beginning to grow stale. Luckily, Alex Maleev is still here to save the day. Read Full Review
