    The odds are strong you're going into this issue aware that fear gas is playing some kind of a role, but what happens next is something you probably won't predict and feels like a punch to the gut. A lot of conclusions don't do the term "cliffhanger" justice -- this one does. It's too bad we need to wait until next Tuesday to see how everyone will react to this diabolical development. At just $0.99 per short issue, you really shouldn't pass on this. Not a fan of digital comics but want to read this? Fear not, a hard copy of issues #1-3 will come out this Wednesday. I obviously recommend it, especially if you're excited for the game. Read Full Review

    Part three of this gaming tie-in is still quite good but it's not going to leave you with goosebumps the way parts one and two did. Superman and Wonder Woman fans might have some disagreements with the portrayals here, but overall I think most DC fans will find this series to be a very refreshing break from the norm of the other New 52 titles.

    Gods Among Us is based on the upcoming video game from the creators of Mortal Kombat. This issue offers a thrilling installment into what has thus far been an emotionally captivating and ethically troubling series. Read Full Review

    The closing chapter teams Taylor with artist David Yardin for a Wonder Woman-focused tale as Diana continues the the fight against Qurac's military while Ares watches over. This segment sheds further light on Diana's role in the larger conflict and how deep her loyalty to Superman lies. And while largely a very serious affair, Taylor does find room at the very end for a bit of levity. Yardin's pencils are a significant step above anything else we've seen in the book so far. His clean, sleek style almost makes up for those awful costumes. Read Full Review

    I'm kind of surprised to say I didn't care for this issue much. It wasn't bad, but I enjoyed the last two issues so much that this one fell flat. I thought going after Superman's parents just seemed like a stupid move that would make him more angry, and Wonder Woman treating Ares like a bitch for lack of a better word just made him seem way less intimidating, especially with her taking his hand like a toy from a kid. I did like the way the lines are being drawn in the sand, you can see Ares will obviously be pro Batman, because he wants to end the future reign of Superman and Wonder Woman, but other than that, not much really happened in this issue that was integral to the actual story or the game.

    Newsarama - Jake Baumgart Mar 28, 2013

    With the previous two issues having a few shocking (and I mean shocking) turn of events, #3 feels rather dull in comparison. Adding to this is the disrupting change of artists halfway through the issue between Jheremy Raapack and David Yardin. Although both fine artists in their own right, Yardin and Raapack don't mix well together and adds to this lackluster installment. Read Full Review
