    Let's talk about that cover. Now that is a sexy man. David and Giovanna make that cover POP. The pinks, flesh and red color draw your attention to that deep v on Terry's chest. This cover is sexy and not afraid to show it. The caliber of art inside the comic is just as high quality as the cover. Don't miss out on this title any longer, jump in to The Bounce now!

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Jul 25, 2013

    This story proves to be just as mature as Joe Casey has said it is. For most of this issue things were pretty settle, as settle as they can get, and then the next thing you know people are being battered and torn in half by a new powered guy who looks like a monster. The best thing to come out of this situation is seeing Jasper jump into action and the way he did definitely reminds you of Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Nuts - Jef Mendoza Jul 26, 2013

    More down to Earth, gritty Earth actually, superhero story. What makes this issue good is that it shows the reader what is going on while not actually telling the reader directly what is going on. Sure, some of the characters are clich but they all help define the world. The story pacing is good and there doesn't seem to be a dull page. Read Full Review

    The latest issue hinted that Silver may know not only what is happening to the individuals with powers, but also about the other side seen in the first two issues. She is featured on the cover for #4 so it should be a doozy! If the intrigue supplied by her presence isnt enough to interest you further, just look to the excellent writing and magnificent art in The Bounce #3. Casey and company have crafted an incredible story of real people in unreal situations that has a ring of truth. Dont miss out on this fun, mysterious, intoxicated, bouncy ride through the increasingly bizarre world of Jasper Jenkins. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Jul 27, 2013

    A book where we can honestly say that we don't know what will happen next, and feel compelled to stick around and find out. Read Full Review

    Many people still aren't sure what this book is as of yet, but it sure does look pretty. With terrific artwork that shows off an odd and still disjointed story, The Bounce brings a new fold to the superhero genre, but still hasn't quite found it's footing as of yet. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Michael D. Stewart Jul 30, 2013

    But The Bounce wouldn't be half the book it is without its deconstruction attributes. Much the same as Hedwig and the Angry Inch would ring hollow if it didn't address both gender identity and romantic identity in glam rock themes like “Wig in a Box” and “The Origins of Love.” The narrative necessities of each story are what make them resonate. I just have to hold off tearing them down before they've confessed their purpose. Read Full Review
