    Comic Bastards - Jonathan Edwards May 17, 2017

    I really don't have much else to say. This book is really good, and I'd thoroughly encourage anyone who hasn't checked it out to promptly do so. At this point, you might need to pick up some back issues to get the full experience or wait a few additional months and pick up the trade. Well, that or you could do what I'm going to probably end up doing and just buy all of it. Read Full Review

    Nation Of Nerds - Tim Montoya May 17, 2017

    With tons of spanning narratives, Royal City is always an enjoyable read. In this issue, there are some pretty sensitive topics that show us why Tar and Steve are so distant. There are some deep emotional cuts here with the opening pages meaning a lot more after the reveal, hitting you like a ton of bricks. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho May 17, 2017

    “Royal City” reads like a one hour television drama and I mean that in the best possible way. I am fascinated by this town, the inhabitants and this family. I get anxious waiting for the next issue because I need to know what happens next. “Royal City” #3 is another excellent issue of this still very young ongoing series with huge potential.

    Weird Science - Repairman Jack May 20, 2017

    This issue still doesn't progress the story overall but itdoes what I've come to expect from Lemire and that's instill a strong sense ofemotion and depression within its characters. We get more glimpses of theindividual character's issues but still not much to mention on what ishappening in an overall sense.7.5/10 var linkwithin_site_id = 2203111; Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins May 17, 2017

    A bit more sophisticated than the usual fare, but honest and intense. This is a personal drama with real world sensibilities. Moody and dark. Read Full Review
