    The part of the story where Claire has lost time and is being examined by the Doctor proved to be quite interesting in that she suddenly has her hearing back in one ear and has grown a bit taller. It will be fun to see what this is going to go in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Aug 12, 2020

    It is frantic and energetic and distilled, it's just really well done. Fraction pours ample passion into each of the characters, and their dialog distinguishes and makes even bit characters that only have a handful of moments memorable and magical. And is matched by the wonderful character design of Terry Dodson, while the different aspects of the world are deftly coded by Rachel Dodson's superb coloring. I love this book because it's clear that the creators love the book. It's weird and quirky and unapologetically so, and it combines all of my favorite elements of comics into one neat little package so of course I'm going to laud it and of course I'm going to ask that you please don't wait for the first volume. This is joyful. This is worth picking up today. Read Full Review

    Terry Dodson delivers some beautiful visuals throughout this book. Everything looks stunning from the characters to the background and foreground action. There is something to see in every page and Dodson't brilliantly captures the tone of the story as the art is both moving and sublime. I love the style of the art in this issue. There is an element of shifting perspective throughout and it works for the story. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Aug 12, 2020

    Image Comics' Adventureman #3 is as fun as any issue so far. But this issue dives deeper into the tug-of-war Claire is experiencing. And as worlds collide, this series promises it's only better from here. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Chase Magnett Aug 12, 2020

    There's no doubt that the Dodsons' artwork provides plenty for readers to enjoy, emphasizing the blend of pulp fiction and Claire's reality with stylish flair here. However, Adventureman is struggling to maintain momentum and offer a clear conceit to readers, and that poses a serious long term problem for a serialized story like this one. Read Full Review

    While "Adventureman" #3 might work better in a broader context, as a standalone it misses the mark. Read Full Review

    While some comics can overcome initial problems, Adventureman is still saddled with flat characters, derivative worldbuilding, and underwhelming art. Read Full Review
