    Three issues in and Grace is doing more for Iceman's character than X-Men comics have for a long time. This comic is so very good on a human level. I just wish X-writers would abandon the damn Purifiers already. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Brian A. Madrid Aug 17, 2017

    I think reader sometimes do not understand the daily life of a superhero. In Iceman issue #3, gives an look into Bobby's world ( Again no pun intended) and it's not all bells and whistles being an X-Men. Yeah, go go out and recruit new mutants and save the world once in while but where's the 401K plan? Is there workmen's compensation due to job injuries? Not to mention when will mom and dad enjoy the pitter patter of grandchildren? For Iceman, being a mutant, fighting for equality as well as being gay might become a heavy burden to carry on. And that what the writer is expressing about the character. Great Stuff! Read Full Review

    All in all, Iceman #3 may simply be hands down the best issue of the series to date, and gives the most succinct and complete idea of the creative teams goals. It leaves me excited to see just where they go next. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jul 26, 2017

    Iceman #3 dodged the real conversation, but so much of this was genuine from a family trying their hardest to come together and an enemy who shows them real fear through delusion. I hope this isn't the last we see of the Purifiers as they do bring out a different side to the X-Men that goes beyond the usual vendetta. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jul 27, 2017

    Sina Grace, Alessandro Vitti, and Rachelle Rosenberg start to find their storytelling footing inIceman#3 with their combination of introspective heart to heart and superhero action. There is less humor and more darkness in this issue, but who has time for one-liners when your family's lives are threatened by hatemongers. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Jul 26, 2017

    Iceman #3 has pushed the series in a better direction. Im still unsure how all the narrative pieces work together, particularly in the plot, but they seem to be coalescing into something that has a vision of the future. Bobby has an interesting story to tell, but the series needs to catch more of its bearings. There are signs that things will pick up for the X-Man and I hope that what develops is something that does the character justice. Read Full Review
