    If you've been keeping up with The Fix, then this issue will certainly quench your thirst for more, but if you haven't started reading yet then you should immediately. The story is unpredictably crazy, the dialogue is hilarious, the characters are fun and the visuals are gorgeous. It's been so long since I've read an original idea that was so inspired and compelling to read. This is the type of book that will put a smile on your face the whole time. I can't recommend this book enough, no review on the internet can do justice to just how fun it is and I can't wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Jun 8, 2016

    The Fix #3 is another wonderful issue in one of the best comics of 2016. Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber expertly merge comedy with drama in an issue that will engage any reader. The electric tone of the book is maintained through the tragic story of a child celebrity due to Lieber mood and Spencer’s fantastic jokes. If you are a fan of laughing, this is a comic for you. There is not a comic out there that will make you burst out laughing as much as The Fix, I guarantee it. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jun 9, 2016

    Building to a true gut punch of an ending that completely took me by surprise, The Fix #3 shows that Nick Spencer's most incendiary and affecting work isn't with the man with a shield, it's in the seedy world of Hollywood. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Madison Butler Jun 8, 2016

    he Fix #3 ends with something of a cliffhanger that suggests Roy and Mac may be in over their heads, and while this isn't a new concept, it also suggests that their problems might be bigger than expected. Spencer and Lieber are a talented team (as indicated by the comic going into second and third reprintings) and The Fix continues to earn its spot as a regular read. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Jun 10, 2016

    The Fixhas been one of the best surprises of the year for me so far. Spencer and Lieber are so in sync it honestly feels like they can do no wrong. Even with an issue that feels like more of an aside, it's an absolute joy and may even be the best book I've read this week. I'm eagerly counting down the days until the next issue, and advise anyone not currently on board to catch up for next time. If you don't die of laughter during the process then you're in for a fun ride. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Anthony Spataro Jun 10, 2016

    Elainas monologue towards the middle of the issue hits it right on the nose, just as the story takes a bit of a darker turn. Just like recent films Amy and Montage of Heck, they are more of a cautionary tale than purely the loss of talent that is put on display (and a bit too much of a dive into the privacy of their lives). There is something inevitable, as Spencer writes, tocause a break down to occur. The non-stop barrage of beckoning these artiststo perform and the backlash when requests aren't made or when fandom's purity is provoked (relevant) becomes an easier process with the closeness exhibited through the digital age. As much as The Fixis a bit more on the comedic side – with plenty of unexpected, well-placed laugh out loud moments, especially through Lieber's brilliant comedic timing – this issue taps into something more.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 9, 2016

    It may seem premature to anoint The Fix as one of the best titles on the shelf after only three issues, but the work Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber are doing here makes it worthy of the praise. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - soshillinois Jun 8, 2016

    While its easy to forget how much an artist brings to the table, Steve Lieber is practically a miracle worker. Pretty much all of the humor, physical, background, or even some of the more inane stuff (i.e the terrifying Pretzels) land pitch perfectly because of Lieber. That also works in reverse too, that same dog is actually kind of intimidating under Liebers guidance. Aided by Ryan Hills colors, at least some of the nuance, melancholy, and humor that defined that previous partnership. While I do hope that The Fix continues to be more than just a place for Lieber to keep on showing the world why hes a fantastic artist, so far Im not seeing much to hope for on the writing end.
