    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 30, 2017

    This is another great issue, but I hope all of the setup gets wrapped up by the end. All in all that is what this issue was set up, and I have to say, with all the events going on in comics right now I am hoping nothing gets left unanswered. Luckily for us, we have two powerhouses writing this book and my faith in them is still strong. This art is fantastic, my favorite pages are the ones with Karnak and Jean Grey, those eyes… PERFECTION Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 25, 2017

    I'm impressed so far and this is an event where the tie-ins are adding to the larger story but at the same time the main series delivers. The major details are here and covers a hell of a lot with each issue. When events by the main two have felt like they've lacked in recent years, this one is heads and above expectations.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 25, 2017

    The events of this issue did come up lackluster for the most part, though Inhumans Vs. X-Men #3 did at least try to do more. When your story involves two large opposing forces clashing you're due for a struggle between action and story. This is where they have to overcome that hump because the quality did suffer from it this time. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Chris Hassan Jan 25, 2017

    Overall, I find IVX #3 to be the weakest installment of the series. Something similar happened midway through this creative team's prequel mini-series Death of X. Starts with a bang, concludes with a bang, but events can't help but slow down in the middle of the show. Read Full Review

    The Source by SuperHeroStuff - Jan 31, 2017

    The same cannot be said for the art of Javier Garron who presents stiff figures and sketchy faces. Some of Garrons panels are just too darn busy to fully make out the action. Luckily, Lemire and Soules dialogue is so engaging, it succeeds to guide the reader where the art fails. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jason Adams Jan 25, 2017

    At this point in the event, slightly faster pacing may be welcome, as the event fatigue starts to set in if there arent enough pieces in motion at once. The premise is interesting enough and the writing solid enough to warrant further following, but its not hard to not feel that this issue could have used another trick up its sleeve.

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Jan 26, 2017

    No matter what side you are cheering for this issue really highlights each character to their fullest. There are so many moments to cheer on your favorite and see them outsmart each other. There isn't any major stand out moments in this issue but overall it was still a lot of fun. There are some great teasers at the end for whats to come that I really enjoyed, and have me excited for the next issues. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jan 26, 2017

    The strange thing is that it feels like co-writers Charles Soule and Jeff Lemire are holding back on us. This is a battle for the future of the Inhumans and mutants, and yet the intensity just isn't there. Hopefully the remaining issues will fix that. But for now, it's a problem. Read Full Review

    We Got This Covered - Tom Bacon Jan 25, 2017

    Although Inhumans vs. X-Men has been a relatively strong event so far, this issue is undermined by some very real background problems. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jan 25, 2017

    We're halfway through this event and if you're feeling a bit nonplussed, you're not alone. This reviewer may be letting the outside factors of Marvel Entertainment's reality affect their enjoyment of the book, but it's hard not to consider when it's hard-earned cash that plunked down month after month. Clearly, no one is totally trying to phone it in - there are talented creators working on this title - but there's a level of complacence. Nothing is really going to change. While that feeling is present in all superhero comics, the arcs of these properties are too well-known (the recent "ResurreXion" announcements didn't help) to feel the gravity of this plot.

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Jan 26, 2017

    The Inhumans still try to carry themselves as though they're the underdogs and have just taken a few devastating punches to the jaw. On the surface, and only on the surface, it works just enough to keep the sequence of events going. Dig just a little bit deeper, and the unpleasant truth is still there. The Inhumans are still trying to stop another species from saving itself. If the most they have to lose is not being able to create new Inhumans in a way that murders innocent mutants, then they can't be underdogs. Carrying themselves as such is just dishonest, misguided, and downright insipid. Read Full Review
