It's 1941, and Hub City is on the brink of a world war...and private eye Charlie Sage is on the brink of unraveling an enormous conspiracy! If he could just get that mysterious dame in red to talk-and keep his kneecaps intact, what with that strike-busting muscle coming up behind him-then maybe, just maybe, he can break the terrible cycle that keeps leading him back, through the ages, to his own death...  8.5" x 10.875"

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Jun 16, 2020

    Being interesting, engrossing, and entertaining for 40+ pages while containing subtle substance and an incredible structure makes this a perfect issue. It’s great storytelling mixed with great art to form a great comic book. Brilliance can be found in the miniseries format and the way Lemire has crafted this story is clearly brilliant. The art may be the best and most expressive in a DC book this year and creates such a satisfying atmosphere. This is a genius and exciting comic book and, with one more issue left, I can’t wait to have this series complete to read it again. Read Full Review

    Lemire packs the story with so many twists and turns that it is exhilarating. The ending of this issue is especially awesome. And nobody draws the Question better than Denys Cowan. He does an amazing job here as well. This book really is an incredible series. I am only sad that it is ending next month. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Geoffrey Luu Jun 24, 2020

    In this issue, Jeff Lemire capitalizes on the multiple lives of Vic Sage in a subplot that doesn't feel drastically different from issue 2's western, but is overall an entertaining detective story/psychological mystery. The issue truly excels in its visuals, with lettering that provides a crucial bit of authenticity for the noir setting and fantastic art that enhances the dreary mood. The Deaths of Vic Sage #3 does enough story-wise to keep you entertained, more than enough visually to satisfy fans of Cowan, Sienkiewicz, or the crime genre in general, and builds a decent amount of anticipation for the series' final chapter, releasing in August.
