    With Rorschach #3, the mystery at the centre of this series is getting deeper and stranger. I'm not exactly sure what this story I'm reading actually is, but I'm loving every minute of it. I just hope that wherever this story is leading, that the payoff lives up to the terrific buildup that King is building. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Dec 15, 2020

    RORSCHACH #3 is ambiguous and strange. It's so open to interpretation it feels just like a Rorschach Test. This creative team is experimenting and pushing themselves to new territory! Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Dec 21, 2020

    King writes a fascinating script that just seems to get deeper and more intricate with each new issue. Jorge Fornes has really come into his own as an artist on this series as well. The images he conjures are truly something else. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 6, 2021

    Rorschach #3 is a great comic. This issue very much feels like an issue of Watchmen in the way that King tells the story, using metaphors and playing with what the audience knows and doesnt know. This book is a wonderful little piece of storytelling that asks some very important questions and demands that the reader pay attention to everything. Forness art allows the whole thing to hit home. King and Fornes are building something interesting here. Read Full Review

    I'm one-fourth of the way through this series, and I honestly have no clue where it's going. But I'm intrigued to put it lightly. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Dec 15, 2020

    Rorschach #3 is a great issue that shows us the making of a monster with Laura Cummings, but at the same time presents a torn conflict -- if you had lived through what that family did, could you see that as normal? Looks like our main Detective might be considering that now too. So watch our for the Squids as you enjoy the beautiful art inside. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Dec 16, 2020

    I dont know if Tom King made a secret pact with Alan Moore, but this book was absolutely fantastic. Forns and Stewarts visceral art only helps to elevate a well written story that had me on the fence, but managed to pull me back in. Tom King and his team have managed to get me invested and hopefully future issues can keep up this high quality of work. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Dec 14, 2020

    It's strange to question why a book exists and also really like it. We don't see why this is a Rorschach story yet, without the real Rorschach, but I'm still very much enjoying it. It tells Laura's story and it was a pretty damn good one, and I like how you get strung along to gradually realize how extreme her father's paranoia really is. As usual, the feel of the art fits naturally with the feel of the story. I recommend the first three issues of this book. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 15, 2020

    That means this was the weakest issue so far in the series, but as always with King, it's about the long game so it might take a few more issues to see if this was the turning point of the series or just another useful step in the destination. Read Full Review

    Diving deep into minds that have traveled over the edge, does this book entertain and help us converse, or is it part of the problem? Read Full Review

    King is slowly revealing a mystery here, but I'm not sure if anyone is going to care by the time he gets to the real meat of it. Read Full Review
