JUDGMENT DAY BEGINS.
The heroes know what they have to do. But do they have to do it? They were smart enough to get themselves into this mess. Maybe they can be smart enough to get out of it....

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 10, 2022

    A.X.E.: Judgment Day #3 continues to be amazing. Theres really no other way to describe it. Gillen, Schiti, Gracia, and Cowles are making the best event books since 2015s Secret Wars and theres no two ways about it. This story continues to go in exceptional new directions, ones that no one would have figured when it was announced, which is why its so great. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Aug 24, 2022

    Theres a lot of plates, and a lot of characters that are incredibly busy, so its easy to get lost, but even with everything going on, I do know this: Gillen excels at character development, and the growth were seeing here with the parties involved just goes to show that with the right creators, you can build a franchise that speaks to any type of fan out there. Im sad to see Gillens arc with the Eternals ending after this, but hopefully this isnt the last we see of them. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Aug 24, 2022

    A.X.E.: Judgement Day #3 brings a sense of foreboding to the story, as the Marvel Universe is judged for its perceived sins. With the fallout set to encompass nearly every hero in the House of Ideas, it remains to be seen who the Progenitor deems worthy and who it condemns. And while the Avengers, X-Men, and Eternals have battled gods before, this is a refreshing take on the matter because it may force them to be more introspective. Read Full Review

    Judgment Day is quickly evolving into a very special event that delivers on the blockbuster promises of crossovers without forgetting to root its story in universal questions and character; A.X.E. is beginning to look like a best case scenario for superhero events. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 24, 2022

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Aug 24, 2022

    A.X.E.: Judgment Day #3 continues the war with plenty of engaging visuals during the battles, an interesting moral dilemma, and an intriguing last page reveal. However, the issue ends almost in the same place it started, so if you choose to skip it, you won't miss much. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 24, 2022

    FINAL THOUGHTSWhile having a few key developments A.X.E.: Judgment Day #3 doesn't push the story forward as much as you expect. We are left in a similar spot when A.X.E.: Judgment Day #3 started as our heroes figure out what to do with The Progenitor's announcement. While we do get a lot of cool moments you are left wishing more was done story wise. That said, we do get a lot of excellent artwork from Valerio Schiti that drives home how we are experiencing a big event. The art alone makes you look forward for what big thing we will get to see Schiti draw next. Read Full Review
