The Freedom Fighters are launching their biggest offensive ever against the Nazi regime...but the bad guys aren't done for yet. The Hitler dynasty has made its move against the insurgency, and it's in the form of their secret weapon: Hitler the Third. And boy, is this kid a deranged little psycho! If the resistance is to succeed, they'd better move fast and stir up enough support from the public to bring Uncle Sam back from the brink, or all hope will be lost...

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Mar 30, 2019

    Its quite the tightrope to cross. I am so very pleased to be able to say that, three issues in, this book is not merely walking across that rope, its jumping and dancing and making it look like the easiest thing in the world. And there is nothing more difficult than that. Read Full Review

    So far Freedom Fighters has delivered exactly as promised. I'm already hopeful sales are strong enough to justify expanding this beyond its solicited 12-issue run as this story doesn't need to be rushed at all. The fun and resistance has just begun. Read Full Review

    A slower issue in an interesting series. I'm certain the plot threads dropped here will pay off soon. Read Full Review

    Everything about this book feels dark and bleak, from the writing by Robert Venditti to the world the characters in habit to the art by Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira and the colors by Adriano Lucas. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 27, 2019

    A good issue that starts to delve into who the heroes are and where they came from in a Nazi run America. The Nazis get a lot of focus, helping to put into focus how disorganized and ready for failure they are. It's a setup issue for sure but has its moments. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Mar 6, 2019

    This well paced series continues to introduce the Freedom Fighters and their world to the reader. While Sam doesn't make an appearance his presence is felt. It's an exciting thing to see a comic find the ideals of America and explore them without seeming preachy. This issue may not lean into that as much as last issue, but Berlin's “God Bless America” indicates that the Spirit of America is an important theme underlying the Freedom Fighters themselves.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 27, 2019

    In this issue you have some amazing art and some back story to our heroes and villains alike and prospects for characters to come.  Yeah, we pretty much just get another battle here, but with it it shows some of the personalities of the heroes and their motivations for becoming Freedom Fighters.  Still an enjoyable series that I can't wait to get the next installment of as soon as I'm done reading...... Each time though, I'm just looking for a little more. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 27, 2019

    Overman, the Nazi Superman, is name-dropped this issue and a third, even more insane Hitler family member makes his debut, but overall this story just isn't developing how it needs to. It feels like a generic action comic that has nothing to say about the threat of Nazism. Read Full Review

    I went to look the sales chart for Freddom Fighters number 1 and 2 and they dont look so good. Number 2 only sold about 14 thousand units. Thats a 12 issue series. Im worried. This series is too good to be cancelled! Its fun, well written, well drawn and very exciting!

    One of the hardest and visually shocking comics on the shelves is Freedom Fighters. It's almost criminal that I'm this late posting reviews but I will get through the series, promise.

    Robert Venditti is one of the few writers out there that will write a single issue that reads fast AF but carries the emotional weight of most entire series. You may get through the comic in 5 minutes but you'll never feel ripped off or like you've wasted your time.

    This issue opens with the death of Adolph Hitler, which happens to coincide with the anniversary of the brutal executions of the original Freedom Fighters team.

    Adolph's son takes over as Furer and the book flashes forward to the series current events. As mention more

    Yes, there's another battle/fight scene and yes, they are still calling the Nazis, "Ratzis" (which is just so silly), but this issue is so much better than the last. The character back story is limited, but it is something. Much more interesting is the time spent on the Nazi characters. Like other reviewers, however, I'm still left wanting something a little bit more from this series; it is jus a bit too tame.

    This was fine. Not much to it. It feels like the pacing's off, which is the same problem with every Venditti series.

    Yeah, okay, this is fine I guess? Nothing really special here to get me interested.
