After their fight club battle, Nubia believes she has gained an ally in the warrior Andromeda. Little does she know, this new prospect destined to become Champion of Doom’s Doorway is a little too eager to prove herself, and it has led to a bargain with the evil she swore to protect Man’s World against!

    The art of Alitha Martinez, the inks of Mark Morales, and the colors of Emilio Lopez paint the island, the sisters, and even the portents of visions bold and dark, in layers of brilliance. Becca Carey's nuanced letters share the tones, inflections, and emotions of every character's thoughts and words. Read Full Review

    The story is positioning itself to reveal more of the backstories of the new Amazons, which is more and more likely going to feed into the conflict for Nubia. These new Amazons have been living in bliss since they arrived here, but what happens when they start to remember their lives before, and the pain and suffering are fueled by Medusa? Nubia is about to have a lot on her hands. Read Full Review

    Even though I wasn't blown away like the first two issues, this is still a very strong companion piece to the Wonder Woman title. I see all the webs being weaved to set up Trial of the Amazons, and while the impatient side of me wants the epic crossover to start, like, yesterday, the Wonder Woman superfan in me is savoring every moment of amazon greatness.

    It's pretty impressive just how compelling this series manages to be without ever leaving home. Read Full Review

    By and large, Nubia and the Amazons is becoming one of the most consistently surprising main universe books DC has right now. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 22, 2021

    Theres really no easy way to bring the vision of the entire island of Themyscira to the page. Perhaps a smaller ensemble with more time spent on central characters would have been more successful for the first half of a six-issue series. As it is, theres just way too much going on in the first half to be fully engaging. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Dec 21, 2021

    Nubia & The Amazons #3 is a lot of talking, and emotional validation with very little progress on the story other than to hint something happened in the past and something will happen in the future. Unfortunately, the lack of meaningful development on the present makes this issue almost entirely skippable. Read Full Review

    Stanton's art is a bit of a letdown, especially when the Issue offers Martinez's right beside it.
    Even though the story comes to its first climax, the fight between Nubia and Medusa lacks some much-needed tension. It's clear Medusa has plans for Nubia, otherwise, she would have tried to petrify her but the reason for that is a bit too nebulous for me to enjoy right now.

    What the book still does very well is showing life on Themyscira and the tensions between the Amazons that naturally occur after a change of leadership. There is some criticism Nubia is going to have to address, and I hope she does.

    Issue three is slightly better than the last onen, if only because getting through the slog has actually made me begin to get invested. In that way, I guess this issue is a success, but I couldn't recommend it to someone in good faith. Also, if you have to ask why a woman on Themyscira would be afraid of a patriarchy, you're very dense. One, let's take patriarchy to mean literally men: the entirety of Themyscira is an escape from men's world, an escape from patriarchy. Of course a literal refuge from a harsher world would fear that harsher world. Two, let's take patriarchy to mean what it actually does, a set of systems built into society to oppress everyone, and you can see why a historian would be weary of patriarchy no matter their locat more

    Review ✍

    **Disclaimer** If you’re enjoying Nubia and the Amazons please I’d love to read why in the comments below.

    Stories set within Themyscira, Krakoa, and Wakanda tend to have the same problem. The settings are presented as Utopian to the point that all the characters have a pretentious air that takes away relatability on a basic level.

    I get “gods” being distant from the reader. It’s a different story when Nubia and her supporting cast are all written like second-rate Shakespearian actors.

    Ok, this was retarded. "curious historian untrusting of the patriarchy". WHAT PATRIARCHY? I mean, the whole pAtRiArChY thing is idiotic even in our world but what patriarchy exists on Themyscira, the place where there are literally no men? Yeah, this is pure garbage.
