    Over all this is the best issue to date. I look forward to seeing how all this gets wrapped up. Read Full Review

    Luke Cage continues to be a good offering and a refreshing take on the character that Walker is groomed perfectly for. With a great fight scene and some story revelations, this makes one of the stronger books in this new run. Read Full Review

    “Luke Cage” #3 is another strong step in the right direction for a series that deserves far more attention. This has been a very personal story for Luke that has examined his origin and the impact of Burstein's work in a really intriguing and wide ranging way. Read Full Review

    I will gleefully recommend Luke Cage #3, though. Luke Cage is one of Marvels greatest heroes. The comic does tell an interesting story, and the art is good, even if its not fitting. I want to see more tight and character-focused comics like this, even if this one feels like it still needs refinement. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    I want to like this comic more than I actually do, but the art is carrying it right now. Read Full Review

    The momentum defiantly amped up this issue Things are falling into place neatly but pretty predictably. The fight scene was good but suffered slightly, in my opinion, to the over writing. There was this Luke Cage inner monologue going through the whole fight that was totally unnecessary. Read Full Review

    Do I like this series? Yes. Do I think it could be more? You bet! The art is a little plain in this series, but the coloring is beautiful. The story is not bad, I just think it could be a little better.

    The only notably good thing was the inevitable surprise ending (and what it could mean). That, and the beautiful unrelated cover totally wasted on this chapter. It wasn't bad just more dull compared to the promise after the premiere.

    Luke fights his way deeper into a twisty southern-fried kudzu gang war. It might seem like we haven't made much progress, but they key is that Luke now knows what he doesn't know and what questions to ask. Plus we get more excellent characterization for him and for Warhawk as well. Nelson Blake's figures continue to look great, and they're blocked into the panels nicely, but we've gotta talk about backgrounds comma lack of. They're under-detailed and oh-so-clean. Luke's moving through a world without shadows, which feels wrong both for the general noir-ish tone of the story and the supposed New Orleans setting. Probably an issue colorist Marcio Menyz shares responsibility for.
