    BUY THIS BOOK! For those lucky enough to get on the ground floor of anything that Scott Snyder does, he's one of the hottest authors the past few years. I am not sure how his imaginative faucet gets turned on, but I hope he has a run that rivals that of Stephen King! With Tony S. Daniel on art, you can't go wrong. What he did with Batman in Detective Comics is simply art at its finest" gallery worthy stuff! Nocterra #3" the issues get better and better! Read Full Review

    By the end of the issue so much has changed from the developing status quo that I'm not sure how long Snyder and Daniel can keep this trip rolling. For however long the ride is, it's got me highly invested and looking forward to every mile along the way. Read Full Review

    The action has truly kicked into high gear as Val's escape takes a turn for the worst in this addictive post-apocalyptic series. Snyder does a fantastic job building on the dynamics between various characters and the tension continually leaves us on the edge of our seats. Daniel and Morey's art and colors continue to beautifully capture a gritty post-apocalyptic setting. This is simply another must-read issue. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 7, 2021

    Nocterra #3 hits a number of emotional notes while continuing to up the stakes for its protagonist's journey. Given the cliffhanger ending, it appears that Val will be forced to make a tough decision down the road, and I'm dreading the day the series comes to that point. But it also speaks to how emotionally engaging this book is, in addition to the action-horror elements. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 12, 2021

    Nocterra #3 pulls off a tension-filled chase scene in a comic, which is a testament to both Snyder's skill as a writer and Daniel's as a penciler. From there, Snyder throws in a little more world-building, just enough to make this world even more intriguing than it already is. Moreu's colors deserve special attention in this issue, as they make the whole thing pop. Nocterra #3 is a wonderful little comic. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods May 5, 2021

Scott Snyder manages to give all of the main characters their time in the spotlight as they make their way to their destination. Read Full Review

    Three issues in, Nocterra's world is much more fully realized; the visual storytelling here is a little less ambitious than in the previous two issues, but numerous characters get depth and relatability that exceeds the first two issues combined. Read Full Review
