    Overall, I’m absolutely loving this series. The art by Javier Rodríguez and Álvaro Lópex is stellar; they’re great at presenting the dense amount of information, and their style is perfect for showing the classic costumes in a modern art style. I can’t wait to see how Mark Waid tells some of the more recent stories in this series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Sep 18, 2019

    Waid, Rodrguez, and Lpez blend this orderly account together making readers feel like they are the Theophilus of the Marvel Universe. For fans jumping into this series expecting a story packed with revelations, the only revelation they will find here is a detailed and historical document that has been fine-tuned, researched, and organized to get new and old readers up to speed for whats to come. With help from Rodrguez and Lpez, this creative team deliberately traps readers within this historical document and makes it an enjoyably fun read while gently informing comic buffs of Marvels glorious past. Pick this issue up, as well as the prior two, and add it to your pull list. Fans will leave the other side smarter and better for it. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Sep 28, 2019

    More bullet points review than anything else,History of the Marvel Universe #3 compresses far, far too much history into one issue, leaving crucial stories on the cutting room floor in favor of cramming as many highlights as possible into the shortest amount of space. It's more of a checklist of Marvel's greatest hits than a legitimate history. Read Full Review

    There is no clear narrative connection laid between these events and thus the final marker of "TO BE CONTINUED" on the final page can only be met with a shrug. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 18, 2019

    This issue feels necessary to the continuity of the series, but there isnt enough here to make it feel like much more than an exercise linking the second issue to the fourth. Read Full Review
