This issue, we're trapped in the dreams of Beautiful Dreamer! The Forever People are Apokolips' Most Wanted, and bringing one of them to the planet is treason all unto itself, so the fact that Granny's plan to brainwash her Female Furies has backfired, Beautiful Dreamer is on the loose and the rogue Fury Aurelie is to blame can't be good for anyone. Can Granny track down these fugitives before Darkseid discovers that his warrior women are the source of his army's recent troubles in the war against New Genesis?

    Once you are done reading this, you will build a time machine so you can move ahead until next month. I cant believe this is already half over. DC, if you are reading this, please make sure you give Cecil and Adriana more to do with these characters once this run is over. Please. Pretty please. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Apr 3, 2019

    Female Furies #3 is another triumph for this series. Castellucci goes a bit more subtle and it pays dividends. She uses this halfway point in the series perfectly. There's the feeling of a bookend to this one, the ending of somethings and the beginning of others. Melo's art keeps wowing, fitting Castellucci's scripts to a tee. Readers familiar with the Fourth World will see where the story is going from here but Castellucci's proven how good she can be, so it will great to see what she adds to what readers already know.

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Apr 3, 2019

    It's pretty brutal, but the creative team handles it all very well. There is a great ending here too that hits the reader hard. This is one incredible book. I'm not sure where we might end up next, but I know I have never read anything quite like this comic. Read Full Review

    Adiana Melo creates some beautiful and dynamic art in this issue and all of the characters looks expressive and emotional. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Rachel Freeman Apr 4, 2019

    While this issue ends ultimately with sadness, there is just a bit of light that shines as Barda meets Scott Free (winkwink). Their coming together makes me happy. And their coming together makes me eager for the next issue. Read Full Review

    The amount of just pure emotion -- both in the Castelluci's writing and Melo's art -- is absolutely palpable, and the way it progresses the narrative in this issue is admirable. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 7, 2019

    Beautiful art combines with some strong (and pointed) storytelling to make a story that's at once dreamlike and all too real. Highly recommended! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Apr 11, 2019

    Female Furies' trajectory completely switches by this issue's end. It's brutal and heartbreaking all at the same time, a damning indictment of a society of entitlement. Though heavy-handed in its approach, this book's blunt-force impact is hard to deny. Toxic nerds beware. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 3, 2019

    The story moves along, with a few permissible hiccups, but fails to capture the reader's attention. Despite the issue being weak visually, there are some cool scenes of Apokoliptan interiors that should interest any fanatics for the anti-life equation. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 3, 2019

    As this bizarre, disturbing miniseries reaches its halfway point, it finally establishes its main character and a strange and upsetting theme emerges " this is essentially a textbook fridging story, only the person the fridging is intended to motivate is another woman. I don't think that makes it any better, as Female Furies #3 once again takes us from a brief moment of hope to a never-ending wallow in horror. Read Full Review

    This mini series continues to disappoint a lot.
    Granny wants to bring Aurelie back to the team by forcing Beautiful Dreamer to manipulate her mind, but Granny wouldn’t need to kidnap Beautiful Dreamer for that, because she could torture her herself. Or this is usually Desaads task, but since all men on Apokolips are portrayed in this mini series as sexist assholes, we of course won’t see any interaction between Granny& Desaad. This series also messes up Scot Free‘s escape from Apokolips, which is quite short. But that’s not the only one. This series wants to follow Jack Kirby’s New Gods, but it contradicts everything, that was written ever since& Jack Kirby’s own version.
    For example: While in 40 years of comic bo more

    Meh, this didn't have much of what made this series stand out before, which were the particularly effective scenes of sexual abuse. Without those, the series just sort of becomes bland. And it really just makes me think a lot of these characters, especially Big Barda, are just the worst. It took Aurelie being murdered to make Barda see the problems here. Not the begging and the crying or any of that. Even after she helped hide the body of one of the abusers in the first issue. It's kind of funny that this clearly feminist book resorts to a much maligned trope like fridging just to get one of the characters to a place they should already be at, if not for what in hindsight feels like a particularly forced attitude for the character in the co more

    An extraordinarily misjudged attempt at the 'Me Too' generation.

    Man, it’s just not what I wish it was. And this art, man, I can’t deal with it.
