    This is a deliberately grim comic, but a powerful one. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Jan 9, 2019

    I just cannot say enough about Bitter Root #3. Every time we learn a bit more, we also learn that this is a small part of the iceberg. Problems are cropping up all over and seem harder to deal with. The characters are all strong and distinct, but not infallible. Their individual stories are as interesting as the overall plot.

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jan 9, 2019

    Bitter Root doubles down on its world-building as action propels the story forward into uncharted territory. If you'd been on the fence about this series so far, this was the issue that sinks its hooks in and makes the set up worth the wait. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 9, 2019

    The backdrop of Harlem in the 20's continues to add an additional layer of significance to the story. There is some real world pain mixed in with this fantasy story and those visuals have a visceral feeling to them. Great work by Sanford Greene on the look of this issue and series. Read Full Review

    Overall, Bitter Root #3 is a fantastic read and continues the fun from the previous two issues. Walker, Brown, and Greene are a dream team whose crafts seem to seamlessly and flawlessly elevate each other. The three of them have crafted an amazing story that I grow more and more excited to reach with each issue. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Jan 8, 2019

    Bitter Root #3 is another intensely dark issue. Brown and Walker's script is biting and intense, drawing on the supernatural to convey a deeper story. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jan 8, 2019

    Bitter Root #3 is another excellent entry to this series. While it does feel like the story is missing a little something to make it truly great and the art in this issue does not feel as “tight” as the previous two, you still are not going to want to miss out. Some crazy things happen in this issue and things are not looking good for the Sangerye family! Read Full Review

    Bitter Root has become my favorite monthly series to read. If ever there was an Image book with huge potential for TV and film options this is it. David Walker and Chuck Brown have written the greatest book of their career.

    This book has something for everyone with characters and a tone unlike anything else anyone is writing. Sanford Greene continues the high level of art in this book. The book drips character and detail on every page.

    I truly hope I get to read this book 50 issues later as one of the best at Image. We will see.
