The Squidder lies broken and battered as the true enemy finally shows it's face. Can it be killed when a world war couldn't stop it before? New allies are found and weapons forged. Battle lines are drawn and loyalties tested as the Squidder deals with his past, his old demons and a small group of squiddly rebels who think they actually stand a chance. Also, finally, tentacles! Lots of them. Plus interesting places to put swords.

    So whats not to like? Its only got one more issue! Boo, rubbish, etc. Although sometimes, things can drag on, so maybe, just maybe, this is another strength rather than a weakness. A cracking read, and long live the Squid! Read Full Review

    Quite good. Minor bitchery relating to the pencil sketch-in style, but overall it's visually enoyable, dark, gritty, space-squid fighting action. Oh, and The Squidder does the do. Go pick it up, but please, start from issue 1. This is not a book to start three issues in, people. Read Full Review

    The Squidder really sets itself apart from the competition this month. Templesmith completely blows the doors off with a dose of wild and crazy that makes the wait for the finale really difficult. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Sep 3, 2014

    The story in Squidder #3 focuses on the destiny of Jack. A squidder who has been fighting for over a century, Jack is revealed to have some genetic ability that leaves him both partly human and partly squid. While this makes for a jaw-dropping sequence, followed by some exciting action, it will be curious to see Templesmith explore, through Jack, the concept of being genetically linked to the thing he so despises. In Squidder #3, the story feels to only advance slightly. Though the direction the story may go has shifted as a result of this chapter's events, the momentum has slowed slightly here.
