    Word Of The Nerd - Travis Anderson Jan 23, 2015

    This book is filled with great moments that help give a larger sense of the world created and show off the characters. I am genuinely excited every time an issue comes out because this is what a comic book is meant to be. If you have not started this series yet, do it now. Read Full Review

    Another great installment in what is becoming my favorite Image Comics series since Saga. It may be a little heavy on dialogue and plot, but damn is it compelling every single issue. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Mike Ferri Jan 20, 2015

    "The Autumnlands: Tooth and Claw #3" is another quality entry into a series rapidly rising to the top of pull-lists. Busiek and Dewey have created a world that deserves to be explored and crafted a narrative that makes the exploration a true pleasure. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Molly Jane Kremer Jan 22, 2015

    The plot itself is dense but well-paced, and it feels like there is even more story to discover than the twenty-four ad-free pages contains between itscovers. This is due to Busiek's strength in world-building, and in his powerful characterization. There's a sense that much, much more of this world exists for us to see and experience than the little corner we've been exposed to this far, and that the storytellers will be very meticulous in their revelations of it. This is a comic built on and within one of literature's oldest traditions, and it does what all great fictions do: it pulls you unfathomably deep into a foreign landscape from whichyou may not want to return.

    Multiversity Comics - Sam LeBas Jan 23, 2015

    "The Autumnlands: Tooth and Claw" #3 is a successful issue that proves that the world that Dewey and Busiek have created is ripe with storytelling potential. The characters continue to deepen and develop while conflicts become more multifaceted and complex. Somewhere between a fable and a historical epic, this book has a signature tone that is unlike anything else. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jan 26, 2015

    "The Autumnlands: Tooth & Claw" #3 continues to tell its story quite well and, while I'd be shocked that people hadn't already been hooked after the first two issues, this clinches that being the case. Here's hoping we can journey through the Autumnlands for quite some time to come. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - David Craig Jan 21, 2015

    To conclude, while a few issues I have with the human character hold it back from perfection, The Autumnlands is still a must-read. I'm really enjoying watching this series progress; characters are getting more interesting, the storyline is heating up, and the artwork continues to look great. To put it simply, The Autumnlands is one of the best books that Image is publishing right now, and it is one that you really should be reading. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Jan 19, 2015

    The Autumnlands has been a stunning fantasy story that readers of any type can take joy in reading. Fantasy, much like horror, is a very niche genre that is hard to attract casual readers. The Autumnlands however, is turning into the type of series that is just so well put together you don't even notice the boundary of genre. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Rob George Feb 12, 2015

    This issue was really great. After a fast start to the series in the first two issues, number three pumps the breaks a little bit. It fills in some story line and starts to create what seems like will turn out to be a huge world. I think The Autumnlands has a lot of potential to be something really cool and issue #3 is a great building block toward that. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - louis whiteford Jan 24, 2015

    Ben Dewey outfits Goodfoot with a Cable's worth of pouches and satchels to look the part of a survivalist. He also manages to squeeze some interesting emotion out of her animal features. Dewey's designs for the animals in this series have avoided using cartoonish distortion to emote, and it's fascinating watching him dig for depth out of rigidly realistic animal faces. It's a shame Kurt Busiek's writing isn't working as hard. The script feels content to wallow in old ideas, never subverting expectations or venturing outside age-old parameters. As long as Busiek remains within established conventions, Tooth and Claw will remain a second rate comic. Read Full Review
