    While I was not very appreciative of issues 1 and 2, I hold this issue as one of those comics that can simply stand on its own. It is light on the reading, but heavy on the thought. The art is both simplistic but evokes real emotion! Well done W. Maxwell Prince Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 24, 2021

    The series feels like it could go on forever like this, with Prince telling a different clown story every issue. Haha seems interested in telling only stories that are strikingly different from each other in every way other than their darkness. The pairing of Prince and Langridge feels more or less perfect in what stands as one of the best issues in the series so far. A silent issue in any comic book series is a rarity. A silent issue in clown-based darkness feels like a more perfect match for the perfect match of talent. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Mar 28, 2021

    An interesting experiment in 'silent' comics, HAHA #3 remains true to its vision all the way to the ending. SIt is sad, and a little wry, and while it may leave you feeling blue, there's a lot of heart and humor on display as well. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Corey Patterson Mar 24, 2021

    HAHA #3 offers readers an abrupt change in Prince's storytelling formula while retaining a similar message. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 23, 2021

    Life is unfair and can be crushingly harsh, but in the end, why are we here and why do we continue to do things at all? Prince and Langridge have made a comic that is helpful in understanding our own sorrows and, hopefully, inspires us to continue on even in the darkest moments. Haha, and this third issue, continue to mix inspiring dedication and focus on art, and dipped it into the very harsh reality that most of the time, the dream ends badly. Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone Mar 24, 2021

    HA HA continues to amaze me in how emotionally charged these stories are. I told someone recently that HA HA is a beautifully depressing story and I can't think of a better way to summarise this. Tragedy and sorrow told in a colourful visual medium sells the reader one thing but delivers something else, the harsh realities of life. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Patrick Cavanaugh Mar 24, 2021

    While the almost entirely visual storytelling on display is engaging, there are a still some lulls that makes the storyline difficult to discern, which is the only thing holding it back from being a complete triumph. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Brendan M. Allen Mar 24, 2021

    W. Maxwell Prince and Roger Langridge team up to bring a (nearly) silent take on the sad clown paradox. Dark, lonely, tragic, and sort of funny, even though you get the feeling you aren't really supposed to laugh.  Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Mar 25, 2021

    When all is mimed and done(see what I did there?) Haha #3 delivers another rough story of bad things happening to decent people. While its silent approach is novel, I feel like its presence keeps the story from landing as solidly as the previous issues did. Read Full Review
