That's her mission, anyway! The fan-favorite Captain America - Peggy Carter of the Marvel Puzzle Quest game - faces off against an apocalyptically armed Red Skull! And the Exiles are just in time to join the fight - 'cuz they've been kicked off their mission! There's a new team of Watchers in town, and they're cracking down on the Exiles' interference in the timestream - even if it means the death of everything. Can the Exiles salvage Peggy Carter's world, fix the Tallus and get back to saving reality before the Time-Eater tracks them down again?

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 10, 2018

    Exiles #3 is another fun and engaging installment of this reboot of the title. The characters are endearing and compelling, the worlds they visit are creative and bizarre, and the artistic team is brilliant. This one gets a strong recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Elias Rosner May 14, 2018

    Another Marvel cosmic book hitting it out of the park with writing and art seamlessly intertwined to provide a host of worlds and an adventure with true stakes. Three issues in and Ahmed has me hooked in full once again. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Brax May 11, 2018

    Wolverine is literally a cartoon caricature of himself, Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan) is a bitter, wizened variation of the optimistic teen we see in the primary, Namor (not on the team) is a 70's style hipster in the age of Aquarius. There's more, but suffice it to say that Saladin Ahmed, one of the most gifted writers in comics, is delivering something delightful for comics fans: innovative variation on old ideas.

    Black Nerd Problems - Khadjiah Johnson May 11, 2018

    First our heroes are stuck in a different reality then three minutes later they are fighting the perpetrator? Did this ending feel earned? I enjoyed being caught in a daze while reading the comic, but at the same time I was consistently trying to figure out “How did we get here?” The comic felt like a train that went express, right before your stop on the local line. I would love to see how this transitions into their next battle and what kind of speed and imagery the creators will use to engage their audiences. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley May 14, 2018

    The ambition of the book, and how much ground it tries to cover, makes it hard to hate, but it's not hard to wonder how much better it would flow in an OGN format. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett May 9, 2018

    Many of the best moments in Exiles #3 come in quick, quiet panel gags occurring within a fraction of a page. These moments are a welcome reprieve from the larger narrative. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley May 17, 2018

    With the weird action and characters this issue Im sensing someone is trying to channel Chris Claremont's much loved Cross-Time Caper arc from Excalibur. This must stop, NOW! Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 12, 2018

    This is such a badly written comic. The characters are only skin deep, the story rockets ahead so fast that nobody has any time to react to anything and the dialogue is just stilted exposition. Read Full Review

    This story start badly. Once more a univers I didn't enjoy. Once more the Time Eater. But the fact the talus don't work put some good in it. Then there is the huge surprise to see Morph (What a pleasure) ... And then he die (Finally ^^ ), and the Time Eater again ... Bouh ...
    But the last part was the strongest, with nice surprise and a lots of fun. And I liked the dance part, then was the end. Shocking a perfect cliffhanger. Well done !

    Cover - In link & nice. 2/2
    Writing - Like I said this was a bumpy ride, but at the end it was very good. Ahmed cut all link to the old exiles scheme. Now he can do is exiles, and if that's like the end. It will be great 2.5/3
    Arts - Strange but not bad. I liked the layout. 3/3

    Quite good, but felt a bit too rushed and too crowded at the beginning. The second part of the story was great though.

    Ahmed wrote a solid entry in his first Marvel team book. The story has been a bit rushed but that is also the nature of the narrative right now. The Exiles are just one step ahead of doom at all times. This issue also gives a nice nod to fans of the original run. Art is solid but with so many moving parts to this story it feels like we are not taking enough time to set up for a bigger payoff. We are starting to see some of the team begin a deeper dialogue with one another but I feel like there is something coming in this story some kind of twist that Saladin Ahmed is waiting to pull on us. This issue will not grab any new fans but if you are already on board for the first arc than you will likely see no reason to stop.

    There was a weirdness and a playfulness in Excalibur as they visited the multiverse that I see reflected in this book. It is something that I really like. The hippie Namor that they visit was great. Peggy Carter as Captain America fighting in World War II that I assume is because England took control of the U.S. during the Revolutionary War. It is never stated but that is the theory I am running with. The art from Javier Rodriguez and Alvaro Lopez makes that weirdness work. I still have trouble getting into this book though. Ahmed's dialog does not feel natural to me. I have a lot of trouble getting connected with his protagonist. The closest I can come is Kamala because I want to know why she is so broken. Ironlad's constant reminders of b more

    The broken Tallus ports the Exiles to three new AUs. Peggy "Captain America" Carter and her sidekick Becky Barnes are gold nuggets. They're embedded in a LOT of spoil that really should have been bashed away in a lengthier, more critical writing/editing process. A terrible Morph cameo, the continued obsession with the Unseen, hippie Namor, building Khan's "character" out of wall-to-wall cliches - this title's ratio of good ideas to bad ones is MESSED UP. Racing through LOTS of ideas fast doesn't help. The good ideas are exceptionally good, though, and they're delivered to the reader in a chariot of excellent art. The layouts strike a perfect balance between innovation and readability.

    My objection to hippie Namor is due to his ex more
