    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jun 16, 2021

    Home #3 represents a creative team hitting on all cylinders. The story that they are building is excellent, and this issue is yet another example of that. It captures the sorrow of the sundered families, the love of the family members and has an amazing sense of wonder. Anta perfectly builds the emotion of the issue- it starts sad, and it just keeps rising from there. Breathtaking is the perfect way to describe this issue. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jun 16, 2021

    Wieszczyk uses a youthful drawing style that is heavy on character expression and form. Valenza's color work is muted, and works perfectly with the story's setting. The panels are brilliantly done, especially those containing no dialogue or narration. The opening scenes were so transportive, I felt my own heart breaking. Well done to the artists. Well done.

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jun 16, 2021

    Anta and Wieszcyzk are ambitious in their approach. I think the story could have maybe used one more issue to let some of the denser moments in the series play out a little more naturally, but I am still very much invested in Juan's story and how it plays into the greater context. Home remains a great modern twist on the framework that Superman and others have laid out before, and even when it falters, it's still a great read. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Jun 15, 2021

    'Home' #3 continues to charm while dealing with heavy themes. Juan's emerging powers offers hope and fun in a world out to get him. His aunt's mentorship will be vital in learning his powers because he still has a target on his back. Julio Anta is finding a balance between social commentary and traditional superhero antics that make this series unique but relevant.  Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone Jun 14, 2021

    Home continues to be a story about morality and optimism told through a real to life difficult situation faced by millions of people a year. Through the character Juan we see how hard life can be through innocent eyes and someone who just so happens to have super powers. It's this twist which gives the story a its spark of excitement and this issue had glimmers of origin stories like Spiderman and even young Superman. Read Full Review

    There are some strong character beats from the family-focused on, but the threats facing them need more fleshing out and the story just can't quite seem to find its footing. Read Full Review
