    CLONE is the comic about clones, which touches on the ethics of cloning, that sci-fi fans deserve. Sure, this "sci-fi" book is not too far off from reality, but it fits that genre, while still keeping its feet grounded in reality. Schulner and Ryp make an amazing duo here, and the story will really grip you. My only problem with this issue is the panel composition is a tad distracting from time to time.Overall, I love this series, and it's a big contender for this month's Top of the Pile. (I gave it 5th place last month.) I highly recommend picking up this series and issue! However, start from issue one! Read Full Review

    Clones is quickly becoming one of Images' best series. I'll admit this one flew under my radar, but I've quickly rectified this mishap. What could have easily been another take on an old and clichd sci-fi theme has become a great and compelling story. Don't make the same mistake I did, go give Clone a chance. Read Full Review

    Being shown piles of dead bodies is traumatic enough. Now imagine how you would feel if the choice you had to make was to add to that pile until you were the last one. Oh, and the corpse pile all looked like you. Yeah, good luck, Luke. I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Overall, Clone #3 is another fantastic issue. We get some really good dialogue with Luke and Patrick, the vice president, and pretty cool scenes with Foss. I'm not sure how this series will be over ten issues with how fast the story is going, but I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes. Looking for something unique to read? Give Clone a shot.

    Den Of Geek! - Robert Bernstein Jan 12, 2013

    David Schulner has truly written a fantastically creative new title based in the world of science fiction, yet the science fiction portion could actually be a reality in humanity's future, which is probably the reason we like this book so much. His writing thinks outside of the box, and includes details (such as the use of petocin) which many writers would not have included. As far as Juan Jose's artwork, it is just as good as the previous two issues. Jose's artwork isn't the main focus of the book, Schulner's story is--but that doesn't mean Jose's artwork is lackluster by any means. His art is well drawn and detailed in all of the right places, for the most part. However, his panels can become sloppy, at times. While the sloppiness is minimal, it's noticeable to the trained eye. As I touched upon earlier, Felix Serrano's coloring of the baby on the last page shouldn't have been so purple, but I will forgive the mistake, as the rest of the book looks fantastic.

    Geekality - Joe Sarnicola Jan 7, 2013

    Pretty high stakes for all the characters, just from what I read in the first dozen pages. High stakes and high interest, now that's a good combination. The terrific, moody art and the effective coloring contribute to the tense atmosphere of this book Chilling and scary. I loved it. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jan 9, 2013

    This series definitely has its cheesy moments, but for the most part I really enjoy it. The events of this issue have put things in to effect that we might not see the outcome to for a while. Characters that I thought were stupid and unimportant actually played an interesting role and now I’m looking forward to the next issue. If you’ve been enjoying the series then you’ll continue with this issue, but if you didn’t like the first two then now’s the time to jump off because it’s not changing its colors anytime soon.

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jan 14, 2013

    "Clone" #3 continues on genre-tested lines, but the dialogue, pacing and artwork are well-executed, and I'm interested in how Schulner will further develop Luke, Patrick and the other clones in combination with the themes of identity and kinship. Read Full Review
