Exiled from their homeworld and still trying to adjust to life on Earth as normal teenage high school students and interns for the Justice League, Zan and Jayna find themselves attacked in their own home by the League of Annoyance. Now separated and unable to use their amazing powers of transformation, the twins find themselves forced to rely on Zan's new pet monkey Gleek for help-but does the plucky purple primate even like his new owner enough to give a monkey's butt about these young heroes?

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Apr 10, 2019

    Wonder Twins continues to be a weird, misshapen highlight in DCs current publishing line. Three issues in and the series still have not hit a false note. Best of all, Gleek is finally center stage. Read Full Review

    WONDER TWINS #3 is a visual treat and is worth checking out. While Gleek the monkey basks in the spotlight, the twins tackle some important issues in this innovative comic. Read Full Review

    Russell's known for his political satire and he's raised some questions here, but it wouldn't work nearly as well without the rock-solid character work. Read Full Review

    The after effects of the Drunkla incident still weighs heavy on Jayna and helps push Russell and Byrne to explore that theme. We not only see it with Jayna but also with Gleek overcoming his past. With so many themes being handled its no shock that Wonder Twins is one of DC better books right now. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Apr 15, 2019

    Those who enjoyed watching the old Superfriends cartoons should get a kick out of this series. Even if you haven't seen the show and just want a cool read, you'll find it right here. Gleek is fun and the twins unite to solve another caper. Too much time is spent on Gleek when his story isn't as exciting as the conflict between Luthor and Math, but it's still a good read especially for the younger generation. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton May 2, 2019

    Wonder Twins is not that. At least, not this time around. But since Russell and Byrne showed what they are capable of, I am going to hold them to the standard they themselves have set. So this issue is good, but not quite good enough. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Apr 10, 2019

    Wonder Twins #3 is another solid entry into the series. If you liked the past two issues you will enjoy this one. I liked that the story had a little heart to it and a good message at the end. It changed up the story dynamics a little bit, while still being very goofy at some points. It has some good laughs and is thought-provoking at the same time, something that Russell excels at. Then again, it is not like I was clamoring to read Wonder Twins or would say it is a must-buy, either. It is good, but then again, after reading it, nothing stands out that much either.

    After Superman warns our unsuspecting twins that they're officially on the villain radar, they slack on being prepared and get captured by the Pee Wee Legion of Doom. Of course, this is all a part of the setup so that Gleek can show how useful a performance monkey can be. Does he wind up saving the day? Wind up being an undercover villain? You'll have to find out inWonder Twins#3 when it drops on Wednesday! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 10, 2019

    This is a nice issue with a positive message and while I liked the art a lot here, there isn't much of a story going on.  This series lacks any sort of focus and while I do like the Wonder Twins, I wish we got more character work and forward progression to make me want to come back each issue.  This series is starting to feel like an Afterschool Special when I want a Saturday Morning Cartoon.

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Apr 11, 2019

    What does work is that Russell and Byrne do not forget the world which theyve established in the first two issues. While the comedy may not be as prevalent, there are still several moments which garner a chuckle or full-bodied laughter from the reader, mostly the result of the League of Annoyance. Although it does not reach the same highs as the first two issues, Wonder Twins #3 is a solid change of pace installment. Read Full Review

    Continuing pretty much on the same track, I’m excited to see things sort of moving towards consequence.

    I see a lot of mixed or tepid reactions to the Wonder Twins series but from what I've read so far it's been solid in telling engaging superhero stories. The book is really goofy at times but the theme of characters trying to understand the point of being superheroes when nothing ever really changes makes the situation a lot more interesting.

    In the last issue, the Twins made life potentially even worse for Baron Nightbood A.K.A Count Drunkula as he fell back into murder and alcoholism after their encounter. The rest of this issue deals with the League of Annoyance and their plans to get revenge on the twins.

    They nearly accomplish their goal but run into serious problems by not accounting for Jan and Zanna's new pet more

    It's like Batman '66 if they had a pet monkey with PTSD! It doesn't hit the heights of issue #2, but it's a barrel of laughs with some of the best lines so far: "Oh no, a plastic bag! My one weakness!"

    The art is beautiful yet again! But the story is eh. Looks like this miniseries is nothing but bunch of one shots and some cleaver dialogue here and there.
