The hero formerly known as CROSSJACK is on the hunt for a murderer, a trail that leads him directly to a self-help guru who was once his sworn enemy: the villain known as FRIGHTSIDE. Now, the "Local Man" must find out what she knows before his high school sweetheart's cop husband throws him in a cell. Meanwhile, in the past, Crossjack and Neon battle demons and angels (both real and psychological) at the end of the world.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 26, 2023

    Local Man continues to be an enjoyable, well-paced deep dive kind of comic. Similar to The Good Asian, this is a title that connects on an individual issue level and will only make for a more satisfying read when it's completed and collected. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis Apr 27, 2023

    Overall, Local Man #3 is a densely rich issue with a lot to say about its main character, but doesn't stop the book's momentum as each instance of conversation, comedy, or characterization manages to still progress the story forward. Masterful, but and happily slow in its execution, this series has been one of the biggest source of consistent quality on the stands this year. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 24, 2023

    Tim Seeley and Tony Fleecs continue grow greater intrigue in the world of Local Man through excellent character development. Every interaction in Local Man #3 builds out both the past and present of the world naturally through Jack Xaver and other characters dialogue. The artwork for both stories further drive home why Local Man is one of the standout comic books of 2023 thus far. Read Full Review

    Things get rough for the former Crossjack, in an issue that adds to the complexity of the story without forgetting that it's meant to be a love letter to '90s Image books. This one's really good. Read Full Review

    Local Man #3 continues a fantastic series that'll leave readers guessing as to what will happen next and who's behind the murder. And thankfully, we're not just getting that but a tease of battles from yesteryear. Altogether, it delivers a series and world we want more of. Read Full Review
