    The real MVP here, however, is Buster Moody (with help from Ludwig Laguna Olimba) whose artwork conveys real horror blended with a breathtaking sense of beauty that makes this one IDW's best titles. Read Full Review

    These creative teams are demanding that we pay attention and think about the questions they are posing. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Oct 5, 2015

    The shift in tone may jar readers, but it's a change of pace that was needed for Godzilla in Hell to work as a tribute to all things Godzilla. Dante's Inferno worked to show not only the variedness of Hell, but also the different aspects of Dante himself. In this way, Godzilla in Hell #3 shows the raw destructive power of Godzilla while highlighting his defiant personality. The creative team of Farinas, Frietas, Mowry, and Laguna Olimba make this issue a delightful read. Godzilla is in Hell. Hell should be worried. Read Full Review

    Godzilla In Hell #3 is a great issue that re-energizes the lost excitement caused by issue two. It is good to see the difference between a solo work and the work of a collaboration. I could continue my praise of this issue, but you should go see this by yourself, because the destruction goes on, and on, and on" Heaven and Hell! Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Sep 29, 2015

    Overall, GODZILLA IN HELLcontinues to be the strangest thing related to the King of Monsters ever. We finally understand why G's been sent to the underworld, and quite an opening act it was. What happens afterward takes the story to some strange corners as the angels are portrayed as almost as antagonistic as the demons, which is a grave shame. Still, it shall be interesting to see what happens next month. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Oct 1, 2015

    At this point the story's lack of deeper themes or ideas comes off more intentional than ever before and more acceptable, no the greater ideas at hand here are rooted in the spectacle, concept, and visuals more than the actual text of the story. I would like to see the next issues move away from the Inferno as that's a very well trod representation of the underworld, maybe explore some non-Christian concepts of Hell like drawn from Buddhism or the like but that's a minor issue. For now, Godzilla In Hell stands tall as a great experiment in artistic blending that's a must read, highly recommended. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 1, 2015

    This series is suffering from a case of diminishing returns. It's understandable, really, as there's only so much you can do with the concept of Godzilla stomping and smashing his way through Hell in an almost silent narrative before it starts getting old. Read Full Review

    Godzilla in Hell #3 is still a good issue, though. Just not a masterpiece like the series has pulled off (twice in row) before. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lead Sharp Sep 30, 2015

    This took two writers and I'm trying to figure out why. I get that this has nuances and structure to give the king of monsters some character but it's literally Godzilla getting pushed into places then using flaming halitosis to get out of those places. Read Full Review

    SnapPow.com - John McCubbin Sep 29, 2015

    Godzilla in Hell #3 gives us a rather epic battle between Godzilla and SpaceGodzilla, but ultimately the lack of dialogue or narration means that this all happens a little too quick. It does however take our kaiju on a rather intriguing path, and I can only hope future creative teams find the same balance as Bob Eggleton did on the last issue. Read Full Review
