    Scott Kowalchuk's remarkable visual work remains Intrepids' strong point in issue #3. His work is simple and bold, his lines thick and definite. The layouts of his pages aren't particularly noteworthy, but his work within the panels more than make up for it. Kowalchuk's storytelling is crisp and keeps Wiebe's sometimes dialog-heavy script trotting along at a steady pace. The only problem visually again comes I the lettering, with some distracting font choices and the same ugly "tech wiring" in the computer-influenced dialog. Minor gripes aside, Intrepids #3 remains an engaging read with a nice cliffhanger that will make sure you stick around for next month's installment. Read Full Review

    The series does capture the feeling of family between the group members, although a uniquely dysfunctional one. With only three more issues left, I think I'll stick around to see how things turn out. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    With an issue more centred on flashback and character development, some of this series momentum seems to have been lost. Also, the lack of Jonah is a little strange, although he does manage one of the most important lines of dialogue. Overall, some of the new developments were interesting, but I hope the series gets back to the mix of action, comedy and character. Read Full Review
