    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 7, 2018

    This Elvira series has been great from the start and I love that it's managing to hold onto that energy with its third issue – though it might be overwhelming in trade form. Getting into this installment with a new location, new but familiar characters, and a familiar structure for most of it, the enjoyment really does come down to the twist on history with the characters and dialogue combined with great art. Everyone is putting in a top-notch job here and it delivers from the first page to the last with everything that you'd want from an Elvira book. Very recommended. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Nov 8, 2018

    If you're fond of traditional horror and you have a sense of humor, I think you might like Elvira Mistress of the Dark #3. It's breezy and carefree, with plenty of jokes. Elvira is capable as a heroine, but not so serious that she can't keep laughing at herself as well. It's just enjoyable to sit down with for a time, and I really like that we have the plot twist to help keep it from becoming too formulaic. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 7, 2018

    Even when faced with adversity, Avallone continues to give Elvira purchase and mastery of her moment and situation. She's never presented as a damsel in distress and it is a testament to the writing that they don't feel the need to shoehorn in a male character to rescue her. Elvira is allowed to be smart, funny, self-aware and in control in this series and this issue. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Patrick Cavanaugh Nov 7, 2018

    This issue marks the first time the series begins to feel redundant, as it began repeating the same structure displayed in the first two issues (including some fourth wall-breaking bits of dialogue from Elvira herself referencing the repetitive nature), though the final act of the storyline offers some insight into what's causing the chaos.

    Sequential Planet - Chris Terry Nov 9, 2018

    Elvira: Mistress of the Dark #3 is keeping with the series charm and toning down Elvira just a little and making for a better comic. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - David Howard Nov 9, 2018

    The issue ends with her in yet another iconic horror moment, setting the stage for issue 4.This story line is fun though it is not truly memorable or significant to the book as a whole. The true entertainment value for this book, and Elvira as a whole, can be found in the situations Elvira invariably finds herself in and the dialogue she wields. This issue of Elvira does not disappoint in that regard and Elvira's usual blend of sex, sarcasm and witty rejoinders are on full display. The book is well drawn and while the dialogue is often comedic the artwork stays true to its horror roots. The colors are wonderful and bring the book to life. If you are a fan of Elvira, Vampirella or even Deadpool there is a lot to enjoy in this book and it is definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Besides these issues, the comic is still a fun read. Elvira is still a fun lead and the idea behind the adventure is fun and compelling. I am looking forward to #4! Read Full Review
