    But other than that, there's hardly anything to dislike about this issue or the previous ones, either. The series is turning into a master class on world building, character development, and most importantly, storytelling. If you aren't picking Copperhead up already, go add it to your pull list today. It's so good, you might just find yourself buying it twice. Read Full Review

    Copperhead feels like a place I visit, now. It's not a world I see from the outside, it's one I go into and look and feel around in. The story and art are working so perfectly together that simple traveling scenes that I might trash in other comics are merely minor missteps in this one. I want more Copperhead and you should too.

    Godleski's art is a big part of what makes |Copperhead #3 work so well. Each page and panel works to build tension and move the story while giving us a sense of the town with visuals alone. His characters are all a little world-weary, sadness etched right into their face. His designs continue to grow on me with each issue. Copperhead #3 is not the most exciting issue, but it propels the story to new places Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Nov 12, 2014

    Copperhead continues to be a uniquely illustrated comic that I look forward to reading each month with a pacing that never stalls, and characters who seem rich for continued exploration. Although the final cliffhanger wasn't much of a surprise, it'll be interesting to see whether the Sewell massacre mystery ties into other shenanigans going on in this outbound town. Read Full Review

    This issue was a solid read. Faerber's written another great issue and Godlewski's artwork is beautifully done. This series is off to a wonder start and there's still a lot more to come. Read Full Review

    "Copperhead" #3 adds another enjoyable adventure to the pile of fun, exciting and entertaining reads from Image Comics in 2014. Faerber and Godlewski are quietly building a world around a mystery on a frontier. They've dressed it up to look like an alien adventure, but "Copperhead" is really a journey of discovery -- of a new land, of strange people, mysterious threats and the motivation of a protagonist. "Copperhead" #3 nudges the main story and the development of the setting forward, giving readers just a little bit more to latch on to in the process. Read Full Review
