    The story isnot as strong this issue and is a bit predictable. After having Lash built up, hisbeing taken down is tooquick. Still, the visuals are good and I didn't feel ripped off. This is the only Marvel Comic I've bought three issues of in some time. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 18, 2014

    I wasn't sure what to expect with Inhuman going into it but each issue just sells me on it more and more, even with the minor problems I have with it. The book has a lot of good things to work with by expanding upon and making more integral the Inhumans in the Marvel Universe, a group that has been around for decades but has usually been little more than a sideshow for much of it. Giving Medusa a commanding role while introducing new characters to flesh out the cast of Inhumans we do know, it feels fresh and alive and without a ton of baggage from past projects or works. While it's a little awkward getting into at first because of the terrigen bomb from the Inhumanity event, it's working its own path and fate here and it has me pretty well hooked. Read Full Review

    My final say on this book is that if you weren't sure after the first two issues and all the delays this is a great time to jump on. I don't think that this book is anything too special now. I do think however think that Marvel still has big plans for this book and hope that it continues to build steam. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Randy Z. Ochoa Aug 18, 2014

    Joe Madureira is a beast behind the pencil on this third, and last issue of his run. Everything he draws has a ton of energy. Medusas hair moves with the power of a tornado and the new character Groves rainbows dart around with speed. Everything about this is strong and real. Not being inked also gives Madureiras extra depth. Maybe thats the secret to the energy of his scenes. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Zach Wilkerson Aug 15, 2014

    Most importantly, this issue leaves the series in a more interesting place than when it began. While Madureira's contribution to the series will be missed, I greatly look forward to seeing the world Charles Soule and Ryan Stegman build upon this foundation. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Aug 14, 2014

    While the script by Charles Soule has it's moments, it also feels awfully hurried, Soule quickly breezing through some solid character work in order to set up the book's knuckle-swinging climax. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 15, 2014

    Soule and Madureira do a fine job balancing the NuHumans and the Inhumans, giving each of the primary characters a role or a line in "Inhuman" #3. Lash, Inferno, Lineage and Korvostax have the most panel time, with Medusa and Gorgon close behind. The end of this issue brings the establishment of a mission and a purpose -- vague though it is -- for Medusa's followers. They now have a reason for being and a need to hone their skills and abilities. It's a shame that this series lost so much momentum due to extended intervals between issues, but perhaps it will find its way into a tighter schedule with Ryan Stegman coming on board. One thing is for certain, though: Soule has just barely scratched the surface of building a new world for the Inhumans with plenty more to come. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Aug 14, 2014

    I find that I’m still fond of the series despite and apprehension that I seem to have but that’s mostly due to the fact that I’m already an Inhuman fan, and unfortunately a strong series needs more than that to keep it going. We’ll see how it goes—though I’d be in it for the art alone, so it certainly has that going for it. Read Full Review
