The only police officer to get close to the Deviant Killer in '72 took an ax to his face...and lived. But when that same officer starts tracking down possible leads, will the primary suspect survive the encounter? The winter nights stretch on as James Tynion IV (Dracula) and Joshua Hixson (The Plot) continue their snow-swept horror story.

    The Deviant continues as another strong original series by Tynion that is not afraid to look at and critique these serious topics through a queer horror lens. Even if January has arrived, each new issue feels like a new Christmas present, and I get more excited towards its release each month. There is no horror comic book series like it on the market right now. Read Full Review

    The Deviant #3 continues to prove it's one of the best comics today that feels purposeful in every word and panel conveyed. This story reads like a puzzle; every piece is perfectly chosen before revealing the larger picture. Read Full Review

    The Deviant continues to be a largely compelling series, but The Deviant #3 is a step down compared to the first two issues. It adds mood and characterization but doesnt keep the pacing and creep factor that preceded it. Nevertheless, the issue itself is worth picking up if the reader is interested in the overall story which remains strong. Read Full Review

    'The Deviant' #3 may not move the plot further since neither Michael nor the Santa killer makes an appearance but its themes and character-work remain exceptional. Read Full Review
