    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Sep 10, 2014

    Justin Jordan and Kyle Strahm's SPREAD continues to be awesome and this is debatably the best chapter yet. While the other issues mostly thrived on violence, gore, and horror, this third chapter packs so much into it and it does so incredibly well. Don't worry, there's still some horrific and gory stuff to witness, but there's also a great focus on character, society as a whole, and even a good amount of levity thrown in there. SPREAD is crazy, post-apocalyptic horror done right and I can't get enough of it. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Sep 9, 2014

    Spread is the kind of fun post-apocalyptic series that you need to get, and is easily 2014′s answer to The Walking Dead. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - CeeJay Sep 10, 2014

    Strahm's interiors continue to impress, as he seems to have a knack for disturbing imagery even when it doesn't involve the Spread. Action-filled panels feel kinetic and the more graphic instances of violence bring with them a level of horror that a lot of extremely violent books like this seem to gloss over or sensationalize. "Spread" keeps getting better and better with each issue and something tells me that when the plot really kicks into gear, it'll be in everyone's stack. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Sep 12, 2014

    The best thing about Spread #3 is that the book's suspense rests on the characters actions; not at all upon the carnivorous monsters. Artists Kyle Strahm and Felipe Sobreiro are the perfect pair for this horror book. They're panels are filled with plenty of raw expression and absurdly talented portrayals of the bizarre"it'll make you take a second look before turning the page. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Sep 9, 2014

    I'm thoroughly enjoying this world, finding myself not wanting to leave it as soon as the issue ends. It's terrifying, interesting, and constantly full of surprises. Spread should find its way into everyone's pull box as soon as possible. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Sep 9, 2014

    As important as Jordan's masterful writing may be, it's really Strahm's art that brings the world to life before the eyes of the reader. Along with colorist Felipe Sobreiro, Strahm takes Jordan's words and transforms them into the vibrancy that we see in Spread #3. It breathes life into a world that is defined by death, a hard thing to do. But then again, so do the characters. Maybe not so much No, but Molly, despite her naivete, makes the book come alive. Her enthusiasm and joy at the smallest of things represents an optimism that should have been killed off long ago, especially in this setting. The contrast between Molly and the world is great to watch unfold. Read Full Review

    ScienceFiction.com - Stuart Conover Sep 13, 2014

    I'm loving ‘Spread' and really want to know where the series is going. While we know that someone out there knows about Hope and they were in an area still advanced enough to have a plane, a pilot, and access to fuel you have to wonder who else knows about the girl. I think that is going to be a tale for much later down the road though as I suspect that Hope, Molly, and No will all be in the fringes of civilization for quite some time to come. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Stephenson Ardern-Sodje Sep 11, 2014

    A thoroughly enjoyable romp through the world after the end of the world. It's heart and soul as much as blood and guts that makes "Spread" a must read. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Nick Brehmer Sep 10, 2014

    Jordan's dynamic storytelling and character development continues to be exemplified through the narration of grown-up Hope and No's minimal responses. Although, this issue, we do begin to see No open up slightly which ends up just adding to his mysterious nature. Every character that Jordan has created in "Spread" has clever creative restrictions placed on them and it fosters a yearning for more " to the series' advantage. I really don't know where Jordan's taking us with this one, but I feel like I'm right there with No, Molly, and Hope. October and issue #4 can't come soon enough. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Sep 10, 2014

    Regardless of all the different comparisons you can make with it, Spread is churning into a book I look forward to reading on the monthly, and I can't wait to see where it goes from here. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Sep 10, 2014

    Aside from a confusing bathtub scene this issue does a lot to explain how far humanity has fallen and it's a disgustingly interesting read. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - F-O-R-R-E-S-T Sep 10, 2014

    We're breaking through Spread's icy exterior but it still isn't warming up. It's definitely an above average book if you're a fan of postapocalyptic brutality but it isn't going to be much more than that if some things don't start happening soon. Read Full Review
