    AIPT - Christopher Franey Jul 5, 2022

    This issue turns the dial another click forward as so much is going on and revealed. Plus, the mystery and the dealings with the DC Omniverse! The connection to Dark Crisis makes it that much more fun, but it still holds on its own. The wait between issues is tough as I want those answers now. This creative team is giving us a modern DC classic don't miss out! Read Full Review

    This is a terrific example of a mini-series where the creative team in unafraid to take major risks. Its led to Flashpoint Beyond being one of the out of nowhere best DC titles on the stand today. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee Jul 12, 2022

    Batman takes a break from hunting the Clockwork Killer in ‘Flashpoint Beyond' #3 as he takes a trip to this alternative timeline's Fortress of Solitude, The Oasis. But with the backstory of Superman's origin being a big focus of this issue, the scale of the story the creators of this series want to tell has grown again. A comic book that doesn't waste a single paper or page and still keeps readers guessing. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 5, 2022

    This issue was a step up from the last one, but it still hasn't reached the high of Johns' prequel issue or the original. The key will be bringing this whole story to a satisfying close after so many odd turns for Thomas Wayne since 2011. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jul 5, 2022

    I want to have fun with Flashpoint Beyond #3. The art is fantastic. The pacing, dialog, and little Easter Eggs of Flashpoint characters are cool. And, Butler Penguin is the breakout bright spot of the series. However, there's a lot to keep straight, and you feel like this is tied into something bigger, but the conflict for the main character (Thomas Wayne must undo Flashpoint) still feels like a retread with a fresh coat of paint.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 5, 2022

    Xermanico and Janin craft some beautifully detailed art throughout the issue. The character designs are great and the panels are filled with great moments that focus on the characters themselves. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Jul 6, 2022

    For better or worse, the plot indeed thickens in this story: the world that Thomas once thought dead is expanding more and more before his very eyes, and he's at risk of losing himself in it once again. I can't say yet whether this expanding scale will be good for the story or not, but the setup is fine enough. With some exciting teases for what's to come, I'm inclined to stay optimistic that Flashpoint Beyond knows what it's doing. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Nicole Drum Jul 6, 2022

    In a sense, Flashpoint Beyond #3 definitely feels like a turning point for the story, but it isn't clear if that turn is going to pay off. That said, Penguin is delightful in this issue, as he has been the whole series so far. I wish we could get a book of just him and Dexter. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 11, 2022

    Behind a *spectacularly bad* cover is a well-drawn issue whose plot is a kludged-together mishmash of previous events, which may or may not tie into Final Crisis, but continues to give us variations on the same grimdark alt-reality themes. Read Full Review
