The life of private investigator Allison Carter is complicated enough just preventing the end of the world on a regular basis. But in the midst of her latest case she gets an unexpected call from her mostly-dead ex-boyfriend, who has a tip that may prove helpful or push the world further toward its destruction. Along the way, she encounters a closet troll with a stun-gun fetish, a theme park filled with demonic creatures in happy costumes, and unravels a secret that will change her life forever.

    We The Nerdy - Eduardo Gueiros Apr 8, 2014

    Overall this issue was incredibly strong. The story takes a backseat to exposition through the first half of the issue, but picks up toward the end. Unfortunately the presence of significant background characters is somewhat lacking when compared to the first two issues, but Als humor makes up for it in a strong comedic issue. Finally, the cliffhanger ending was amazing, setting up the story for a hopefully exceptional finale, in which a number of different outcomes could come to fruition. I definitely recommend this series, and luckily you still have a little time to catch up before what promises to be an unforgettable ending. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Blair Stevenson Apr 1, 2014

    There is nothing all that unique about the story of Apocalypse Al. However, I still highly recommend this title. J. Michael Straczynski has created what could be my favourite image title of the year so far. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Apr 2, 2014

    All in all, I was satisfied with my first read of the comic. It was lots of fun seeing these supernatural devices in Al's world. I will come back for more. And I am not going to line, there is a big cliffhanger at the end of this comic. I am sucker for cliffhangers. It is a problem. But with this series, I am investing enough to see where it takes us. If you are thinking this week is slow with comics, then pick up something new. I am suggesting Apocalypse Al. Read Full Review

    Backwards Compatible - Paul Fiander Mar 31, 2014

    All in all the plot has moved where it needs to be with one issue left, there is some level of intrigue and the precedence of further violence has been set. When the series ends I hope we think of this issue as an important part of the overall arc but it is not the strongest showing from Al. If you are intrigued by the premise of this story then go back to the first issue and you will be happier the if you this issue as a jumping on point. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Apr 1, 2014

    The Adventures of Apocalypse Al #3 is an outing that does enough right to keep its audience. It stumbles but fans can still look forward to the finale with minimal disappointment. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Marcus Hammond Apr 2, 2014

    Overall, the previous issues have been better. The Adventures of Apocalypse Al #3 may have some funny moments and act as a bridge into the final issue of the series, but it feels more like a filler issue that could be easily skipped in a short mini-series. Read Full Review
