    OverallTim Howard's story moves forward at a nice pace and it will be interesting to learn if Betsy and the team will be able to save Brian and Rogue from their respective fates. I'm looking forward to seeing how Pete Wisdom and MI-13's involvement will help or hinder them in the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 4, 2019

    Marcus To puts the icing on the cake with some truly beautiful art. Between the characters and the highly detailed battle scenes, I found myself marveling at the rich and fluid energy of the art. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 4, 2019

    This series continues to be a breath of fresh air for not only the Dawn of X titles, but Marvel in general. It has sweeping originality that's hard to put down and art that makes the characters so very endearing. Read Full Review

    Still standing as a distinctly mythic flavor of Dawn of X, Excalibur #3 continues the series' streak of improvement. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Matt Fischer Jan 28, 2020

    This is the type of book that I love: a little serious, a little funny, and a whole lot of mutants. Excalibur is by far the best book of the "X" line after X-Men. The colors in the book are vivid (I really like Rictor's powers being represented by green energy.) The surprise ending of Peter Wisdom showing up is also nice. It's easy to forget that he's actually a mutant as well. The world of mutants is rapidly growing again. Read Full Review

    But in truth, that's a minor issue at best. There's plenty ofentertaining stuff here to keep readers enjoying the ride withoutneeding to know exactly where it's going to take them. Moreimportantly, the book is establishing its identity more and more, andthat means newcomers to Excalibur are getting on an even playingfield without having to feel lost. Even if we're not super-clear how allthese pieces are coming together, we can be confident buying into the road ahead, trusting Howard and To to lead the way. Thus far, they'veearned it.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - acnbat Dec 4, 2019

    My faith has been restored in Tini Howard and in magic! This is my favorite issue so far. The story is told in a way that isn't nearly as confusing to the reader, even while adding more characters to the mix. Read Full Review

    The third issue of Excalibur tells a nice tale, but it's still hampered by some weird choices overall. Read Full Review
