    If you're looking for a great series with insane and over the top action and adventures, you really need to be reading CHRONONAUTS. Mark Millar and Sean Murphy throw out the traditional rules about time travel and pretty much let it all hang out (just look at the cover). Sean Murphy's art is incredible. I just can't get enough of this series. It's unfortunate there's only one more issue. Hopefully we'll see more really really soon. If you're not reading this book, you need to fix that right away.

    Big Comic Page - Martin Doyle May 13, 2015

    As I mentioned before, this story has Hollywood blockbuster written all over it, but there's plenty of scope for further development into an ongoing series, so hopefully next month's concluding issue won't be the last we hear of Chrononauts in comic book form. Read Full Review

    If you are a fan of comics that are fun and don't take themselves too seriously, then Chrononauts is for you. Corbin and Danny have the type of bromance that all-star comedic pairings are made of. Toss in the time travel aspect and you have a recipe for greatness. Read Full Review

    Chrononauts essentially assaults the senses here and takes you on quite the ride. I'll admit, a lot of attention at the moment is on the visual thrill of the Mad Max: Fury Road movie. While I don't expect the Chrononauts film to match it, if they manage to capture even half the energy of this book in this particular issue with its crazy chase sequence across time, they'll definitely be striving for some lofty but attainable goals. There's a crazy kind of fun to all of this as the guys ride it out as best as they can, and the collateral damage is just striking in seeing it all unfold. I can't help but wonder about some of the mechanics of all of this, having been raised on hard science fiction, but I'm able to push it off to the side simply to enjoy the surreal and hilarious run that we get here. Danny and Corbin are definitely far too much fun to watch in this form. Read Full Review

    About as big and bombastic of any comic of the action movie persuasion you're going to get. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long May 13, 2015

    Chrononauts #3 is a wild thrill-ride that takes everything you're used to in a time travel story and blows it up. Millar and Murphy aren't holding back when it comes to a crazy tale and the energy they fill this story with is impressive. Chrononauts is just crazy fun and that's something I can always use more of. Millar and Murphy have got a winner here. Read Full Review

    Next issue concludes the series. If the first 3 issues are anything to go by, it's going to be a spectacular finale. Read Full Review

    Chrononauts may not be the series that I had hoped, sometimes feeling like nothing more than a convenient movie plot, but that doesn't mean that it's completely terrible. That being said, it is hard to overlook the lack of depth in this tale, as though the actions of Dr. Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly are fun, it's not till the end that there's anything that captivates (bar the art that is).

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough May 13, 2015

    With only one issue to go I'll see the series to its end, but feel a little disheartened that Millar seems to both ignore what makes the series good and throws away a lot of potential for what could've made a great series if it had been a little longer and more ambitious. Read Full Review

    Yet Another Media Site - Kevin Finnigan May 15, 2015

    CHRONONAUTS #3 is a very fun comic that is worth your money, I just really wish it was more of what hooked me in at the beginning instead of veering off into generic time travel romp. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 14, 2015

    All in all, it's not bad. It's just not good either. It falls into that pit of average and is dangerously close to sinking into below average territory. And it's all over in the next issue" which at this point I'll read it, but my expectations from the first issue to the last have fallen so steeply that there's really nothing that this story can do that will save the series; in fact, it'll probably go the opposite way.
