    Skywards incredibly adept use of pacing and its engrossing conceptthe gravity that once bound humans to the earth has dissipatedcontinue to make for one of the best original comics of the year. The team of Henderson, Garbett, Fabela, and Bowland are doing so many things right. I am once again surprised at how thoroughly Im enjoying this book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jun 23, 2018

    As noted above this series has started off simple, reeled us all in with the appearance of a light-hearted zero gravity fun-fest. Then it held us enthralled as we got deep, heavy themes of loss, family, hope, and faith, as well as thrilling scenes for the adrenaline junkies in all of us. What a series! I started off scoring this high, but feel like I have to increase those initial scores given the richness of the storytelling as the series goes on. Wonderful series. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Jun 13, 2018

    What I love about Skyward is that every issue leaves you wanting more. I'm interested in seeing how Willa's character reacts to her life (forgive me for this) being turned upside down. By the end of the issue, the stakes are raised to a point that her trouble doesn't just affect her. I have a feeling will give us that and so much more as he continues to open up this wild and wonderful world. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jun 23, 2018

    Despite Darrow's unwarranted violent episode and the predictable ending, 'Skyward' remains an entertaining and enthralling comic anchored by some incredible artwork. Garbett and Fabela do some of the best work in comics right now. Issue three lays out the stakes and reveals just what Willa is up against, hardening her resolve and raising her game. 'Skyward' is still a solid read but needs to tread lightly so as not as to settle for one-dimensional characterizations. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 23, 2018

    Skyward #3 is the weakest issue thus far, but its not outright bad. A shaky opening isnt enough to break this comic, and I can still easily recommend it to anyone who has enjoyed the Joe Henderson and Lee Garbett series already. Feel free to check it out. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Kyle Simcox Jun 22, 2018

    It's rather unfortunate for Skyward honestly because I really felt it was starting to aim itself in the right direction. However, #3 seems to be back on the path of boring and uninteresting. Barrow's villainous reveal is just too poorly executed to have any real impact. We knew he was the bad guy already. Briefly imprisoning Willa and beating on her was just unnecessary, especially if he wanted to find her dad. Read Full Review

    I was really worried that this ongoing turn darker. And even if Willa take a beating henderson & Garbett succeed to stay fun.
    I'm a little surprised she stay sharp after the beating she had. I understand she was up thank to the 0 gravity part, but I wasn't ready to see her counter-attack. I really loved all the runaway part in the laundry trolley. And It was suit to had a little something about emerson secret too. I love the art. Still a really enjoyable flying experiment.

    Cover - A little disappointed by this one. Not my favorite. And not related. 0/2
    Writing - Damn I love this ongoing. It's smart & fun and lightweight at the same time. But with a sens of gravity too (Yeah I do pun, now !) 3/3
    Arts - I would love more
