    But Why Tho? - Max Funkey Jan 23, 2020

    As it stands, Family Tree #3 is in direct contention for my favorite horror comic currently running. While the competition is stiff, Family Tree stands out. Few comics are as forthcoming and also as mysterious as this one. It is absolutely worth your time. Even if you've missed the first couple issues, if you enjoy horror or a good story then pick this one up. Read Full Review

    If you weren’t sure what this story was really about before this issue, you won’t be much closer after this one, but you will be shown more of what is under the surface. Lemire’s focus on family has an added twist in this issue. And, the art adds an atmosphere like no other. The ideas in this comic are definitely interesting and are now gaining form. If this course is kept, this comic may be beginning to bloom. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Jordan Claes Jan 22, 2020

    Family Tree #3 is yet another excellent chapter in what has become an increasingly exciting horror/mystery story, the likes of which I've never quite encountered before. Lemire's originality is drawn from a bottomless well of inspiration; he is nothing short of a miracle and we are lucky to have him. If Jeff Lemire were a boxer, he'd be Floyd Mayweather: completely and utterly untouchable. Read Full Review
