    If you are interested in fine writing, character, kindness, action, violence, and startling art, this is the book for you. If none of that sounds appealing, I dunno. Read a Frank Miller book, I guess? Read Full Review

The end of the issue teases another hero undergoing a horrifying transformation. Since we're now at the halfway point, I fully expect the creators to punch other readers and me in the heart again.

    Dark Ages #3 does a great job building on the foundation created by the first two issues to create a compelling narrative around Apocalypse as the main antagonist from this series. The progression of the story was all well done to position all sides of this conflict as strongly as possible. Dark Ages is definitely a can't miss series for Marvel fans. Read Full Review

    Dark Ages seems to be designed like a dopamine-delivery system, capable of offering brief boosts for familiar Marvel fans before being forgotten altogether, although Coello does deliver some nice design work in Dark Ages #3. Read Full Review
