    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 12, 2023

    DC has had a rather shaky track record in bringing the larger-than-life crossovers to the page. Crisis on Infinite Earths was impressive enough, but it was WAY too cluttered to make much sense to the average reader. War of the Gods was a hopeless farrago that was all completely muddled by the editors involved. By contrast, Lazarus Planet has come across with a great degree of coherence and a vivid sense of gravity. Its quite fortunate that DC had managed to get some of its better writers together for the crossover. Its been a very satisfying crossover thus far.  Read Full Review

    Spinning out of both Lazarus Planet and the ongoing Wonder Woman run, this mini-event has delivered some interesting storytelling while putting the heroes up against some of the most powerful forces in the DCU. Read Full Review

    A thrilling issue that unites the disparate plots from previous issues. Revenge of the Gods continues to impress and captivate readers with its dynamic characters, intense action, and mythological themes. Read Full Review

    Diana appears to also be a God now and we can assume is no longer a Demo-God. So, is she now closer to being like Thor from Marvel than anyone else? Maybe. But once this story is all said and done, whats the new status quo? Where are we heading? I just dont see the premise of this event nor do I see its benefit. Overall, its an average story that will certainly keep your attention long enough. However, it lacks strong elements that will probably hook readers and get them truly invested in the story.

    With only two issues left, Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods #3 is where we can feel the threads closing in and tying up. The last issue of this is going to be a hell of a read, and you definitely need to be along for it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Apr 11, 2023

    Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods #3 is a setup issue that moves the players into position for the big finale. Nothing new or exciting in this issue that you didn't already know, so it's a serviceable addition to the arc. Also, the backup is dull and pointless. Read Full Review

    It's hard to get too excited about another big Amazon event so soon after the much hyped, but lackluster Trial of the Amazons, and Lazarus Planet Revenge of the Gods is giving that same vibe. Read Full Review

    The one thing that Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods #3 does very well is that it pulls together the various story threads that have been going on prior to this and, as a result, puts all the players into position for the finale. But that, and maybe the revelation that Diana is an actual god now, is about it. Read Full Review
