• Ant-Man faces off against his deadliest arch-enemy -- the mercenary known as TASKMASTER!
•  Can we really call him an "arch-enemy"? Well, they've actually fought a bunch of times (look it up). And they definitely don't like each other -- that's what "arch" means, right?
•  There's a mystery villain pulling the strings! He's the one covered in heavy shadow. Mystery villains never have good lighting. Need to get to an Ikea or something.
Rated T+

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Mar 11, 2015

    While I'm not a Taskmaster fan, his appearance doesn't hinder the book at all. ANT-MAN three is just an incredibly crafted book that is more than a few cheap laughs here and there. ANT-MAN is this fun, quirky redemption story that is a blast to read. It's weird to see anyone in the Ant-Man costume doing something memorable again, since I can't think of a time we had a good Ant-Man story since Eric O'Grady was in the costume. Regardless, jump on ANT-MAN and check it out. You will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Mar 15, 2015

    You would be hard pressed to find a comic more enjoyable than Ant-Man. I’m calling it right now, this is going to be an iconic Ant-Man run and maybe even the definitive one. Ant-Man #3 succeeds with every page and every panel. If you like comics, you owe it to yourself to pick up this series, it’s that good. Read Full Review

    Moargeek - Matt Lyons Mar 29, 2015

    Nick Spencer's run of Ant-Man continues to get better and prove itself worthy of the term "must-read." Characters both old and new have great dynamics together, and fighting is right on point with Ant-Man's abilities. Seriously, if you haven't picked up Ant-Man yet, do it. Do it right now.

    The truly great thing about the latest Ant-Man series is the tone. It's the quirky yet down to earth voice of the comic that makes it so enjoyable. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 12, 2015

    In addition to being a fun, accessible gateway into the world of Ant-Man, this series continues to fill the void left by The Superior Foes of Spider-Man. It taps into a similarly fun, blue collar superhero vibe as Scott Lang struggles to make a name for himself in a new city and maintain a relationship with his daughter. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Mar 16, 2015

    There's something oddly compelling about a man who would name his right-hand ant Tony Wilson (which, whatta riot) while taking a gravely serious approach to the upbringing of his own daughter. Scott's a man of at least two facets " the fact that his ego doesn't repel the reader is evidence of Spencer's solid characterization " and though he can be a doof more often than not, we're satisfied with the knowledge that Scott's motivated by what's best for Cassie instead of the almighty buck. But everyday's a journey. And Scott's the sort of fella who can literally make an anthill into a mountain. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Mar 11, 2015

    While this issue seems to find a bit better ground to stand on for the series, it also shows that the direction isn't entirely set. Not every superhero comic has to be completely serious, but neither so can it be all jokes. It is somewhere in the middle that this series found its heart in the first issue, but it equally needs to be more serious when required as opposed to sacrificing pacing for dialogue which is not really funny and therefore only distracting. This series at times borders on being a fairly typical comic, but it verges on being something better at times as well. It is this potential which will bring the readers back, but the creative team seems to be squandering the interest in this title while it figures out how to use what it has. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 14, 2015

    Ant-Man is good to look at too. Rosanas'pencils haven't wavered in the slightest so far. Everything is nicely detailed, especially the ants vs. paperclips battle. And Ant-Man's costume looks as cool as issue #1. Though three issues in, I hope Scott takes it off one of these days. Surely he's bought some other clothes by now, right? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Mar 16, 2015

    Three issues in and "Ant-Man" is another entertaining, high quality comic from Marvel. Spencer does dense plots well and what's coming up next will be a true test of how the premise of this series can hold up. If anyone can pull off the mundane drag of work life with the complications of spandex, Spencer has proven he can in his previous work like "Superior Foes of Spider-Man." Here's to the little guy in all of us. Read Full Review
