    This issue is giving me hope that we'll see more of Gwen in another series down the line. Perhaps that is merely wishful thinking. Only time will tell. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 9, 2019

    You need to buckle in for Gwenpool because this is a ride with some awesome whiplash. Enjoy the jokes as they come in breaking down comics, characters, and your occasional cheap visual gag! Read Full Review

    This series is just pure fun. It's very much a grab any edition series too which I like in it's accessibility. Not everyone has the time, or patience, to devote to a long running series. Here you can either collect every issue and read them in sequence as the greater story arc it is… or just as easily pick up a copy from somewhere in the midst of the run and enjoy that portion of the story as if it was a one shot. Having said all that, I'd recommend grabbing them all and certainly this one should be picked up and read if you want a good giggle with and at the Marvel line up. Read Full Review

    "Gwenpool Strikes Back" #3 is a meta comic that felt fresh and original, and was a whole lot of fun to read. Highly recommended! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Oct 9, 2019

    Gwenpool Strikes Back #3 loads fresh outrages into Gwen's quest to make herself popular. The protagonist (and the creators) again wobble on a tightrope between being crass and charming. I think most Gwenpool fans, like me, are rooting for her to fall firmly onto the "charming" side, but the balancing act is an engrossing adventure all by itself. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 12, 2019

    A fine and relatively fun issue that reinforces the idea that this character has probably worn out her welcome and is now just running in place. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Oct 14, 2019

    Gwenpool Strikes Back (2019-) #3 continues Gwenpool's quest for relevancy in the Marvel Universe. The art and coloring are great, and the idea behind the story is fun, but the characterization for Gwenpool doesn't exactly hit the mark. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Oct 13, 2019

    With Gwenpool trying every idea she can to boost her sales and keep a solo series, some of those ideas are bound to fail. So far, theyve failed on the page, but the execution of the actual story has been good. This time, however, things didnt work out in either situation. But theres always next month. Read Full Review
