Eel went looking for a kid, but he found a Man-Bat instead, who brought him not only to the kid but also to the lair of the secret society that needs Plastic Man to stop asking inconvenient questions. Yes, it counts as comically good fortune if you squint your eyes and look around the corner (which he can totally do without even breaking a sweat. Or, you know, his neck).

    A crowning achievement adorning nearly 80 years worth of DC's stretchy superhero. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Aug 8, 2018

    The team is rolling with this issue! Plastic Man is shaping up to be a successful take on the character that will hopefully graduate into an ongoing from this same creative team. As the story develops so do all the characters and there's a genuine dynamic between Plas and his friends. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Aug 8, 2018

    This comic is twisted. This book is hilarious. The visuals are twisted. The art is fantastic. The only bad thing about it is that it is a limited series. Read Full Review

    The sidecast inclusion of this issue and how they tie to the story makes this a really fun and great issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Aug 8, 2018

    Plastic Man is unapologetically hopeful and unrelentingly funny. This is the perfect supplement to your weekly pull and will endear itself to you in shorter order. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Aug 8, 2018

    This is one DC title that never suffers from too much gloom and doom or an overblown sense of self-importance. Plastic Man may be the most flawed super hero yet, but he is hilarious. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Young Aug 9, 2018

    PLASTIC MAN #3 continues the fun vibe of the two prior issues while introducing us to more action. There's less of a plot to this third issue and Simone continues to bait us for answers to the series' mysteries, but the characters make the ride worth it. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 8, 2018

    Gail Simone's reinvention of Plastic Man's origin often feels like a 1980s comedy-noir, and it makes a lot more sense once you realize that she's been planning to do this comic for years. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 8, 2018

    Gail Simone is doing a lot character wise with this series and she is giving new life to the character of Plastic Man. Read Full Review

    As this story continues, it only gets better, and will likely leave readers begging for an ongoing if that trend continues. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joshua Hilgenberg Aug 8, 2018

    Plastic Man #3 is a book for people who like to have fun, and feel a little something. Whether you've been keeping up with the book or not, this issue is easy to enjoy. The people working on this comic are putting their best butts forward, and it's hard to ask for anything more than that. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 8, 2018

    Plastic Man continues to protect Pado Saskatoon, and in doing so nearly kills the kid. All in a day's work for the google-eyed goofball! The plot thickens, but it's more than likely you've come for the jokes, and you'll stay for the butt-faces. There's truly something for everyone here. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Joe Bainbridge Sep 11, 2018

    The comic is set in a bland, dull city with no real personality and has a story to match it. We are halfway through the story and if it doesn't get good soon it will be forgotten amongst other miniseries. Sammy's story may spice up in the coming issues... Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Clayton Hinojosa Aug 8, 2018

    With just three issues left in this series, I'm still looking forward to what Simone has in store for Plastic Man by the last issue to make me want to pick up anything from her in future. Read Full Review

    GWW - Brian Villar Aug 8, 2018

    Plastic Man #3 is cosmetically perfect, however, the story itself is a jumbled mess. With a shortened jammed packed plot it feels that it would do better with less and not try to jam as much content into an already solid start. I do hope they can continue working on Plastic Man as that might be the true equal to Deadpool that DC has been looking for. Read Full Review
