    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Feb 24, 2014

    If the revenge story wasn't exciting enough, it's the addition of some history that makes DEAD BODY ROAD #3 even more intriguing than the first two issues of this fun new series. Jordan's great dialogue and characters coupled with Scalera's art make for a violent romp that is equal parts hard-hitting and engaging. Do yourself a favor and check out DEAD BODY ROAD.

    Nerds On The Rocks - Lenny Wojt Feb 26, 2014

    Dead Body Road #3 is back on track after a slower previous issue and it couldn't be more welcome. The violence and intrigue is ramping up and can only get better from here. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kevin Beckham Feb 26, 2014

    Basically, Justin Jordan's Dead Body Road is easily one of the most entertaining comic books out right now. Its blend of action and sassy dialog is simply becoming a trade mark of Jordan's comic work. So just like the issues before it, this is simply a must buy. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Feb 27, 2014

    Dead Body Road #3 is something that may not be the average cup of tea for the frequent comic enthusiast, but trust me you won't regret picking it up. After three releases this franchise has proven its worth as it earns a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Feb 26, 2014

    I feel like a broken record saying this, but I simply have to point it out: yes, this is a story that isn't all that original (at least not yet, that is). It's your heist gone wrong meshed with a man who has lost his wife and now has nothing to lose as he seeks to punish the people responsible. However, the series thrives because of the creative team. Jordan refuses to slow down the pace and hits us with some massively entertaining set pieces and a consistent flow of no-nonsense dialogue. And then there's Scalera, an artist who has an uncanny ability to flood the panels with vivid energy. Together, they're creating one hell of a book. If you've fallen behind and this sounds appealing to you, you should definitely look for it when it's released as a trade. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Feb 24, 2014

    I feel sorry for anyone who looked passed or dismissed Dead Body Road because this series is shaping up to be something really special. There has been a real lack of well done modern age crime fiction in comics lately, so it's great to see a series out there hitting all the marks and hooking us readers into the story. Mind you, this is only the third issue, but it seems the tables turn in every issue of Dead Body Road. No matter how satisfied you are with the presently released issue, readers are excited to see what happens in the next one. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Feb 28, 2014

    As great as that action is, at the end of the day, it all ends up feeling rather shallow. It's hard to care about the awesome fight scenes when you don't know why they're happening, or what they're doing to advance the plot. So while it's fun and entertaining, it's fun and entertaining in the way that a big budget action movie is fun and entertaining. You go in, watch it, and leave the theater, thinking “Oh, that was cool, but not something I ever need to experience again.” After finishing Dead Body Road #3, you might be having exactly the same thought.

    Big Comic Page - Blair Stevenson Feb 25, 2014

    Despite its many obvious flaws, Justin Jordan and Matteo Scalera have created some easily readable and original from what is an overused stock-plot. Read Full Review
