    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 11, 2019

    Beautiful art from Flaviano showcases both the characters and the awesome and detailed backgrounds. There are great visual moments throughout this issue from Beak's father's room to the menace from the men invading the farm. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Dec 15, 2019

    The New Mutants keep making the same old rookie mistakes, whether it's on Earth or out in the cosmos. This most recent one results in a violent show of force. We witness the severity of the man vs. mutant war, and no matter the outcome, this will serve as the prime example of why you shouldn't leave the greatest and safest island home a mutant could ever ask for.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Dec 11, 2019

    All in all, New Mutants #3 takes a step back to focus on some other characters, and it didn't hurt the story one bit. I found a new appreciation for this book knowing that this creative team had greater ambitions than just indulging in a space adventure. Whenever they jump back into that? I'm willing to wait for it since both halves are as important as the other. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Dec 12, 2019

    At its core, "To the Grave" is every bit the story of family that thefirst two issues of New Mutants is, even as it involves a totallydifferent lineup within the same book. It's a fair bet to say thatthere's more affection among large swaths of the X-Men fandom for theclassic New Mutants than these, also appreciated characters, and thatcould cause some resentment for this story. That would be unfortunate,because there's as much to like here as there is in the first couple ofissues. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 11, 2019

    This is a good issue even if it's a complete left turn from the first two issues. Brisson and Flaviono do well to capture the heart and soul of the characters on display rendering this as a great character-driven story. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Dec 13, 2019

    While it isn't as singular as the space-based hijinks of the titular team, it is nice to see New Mutants #3 thinking locally and making great use of the younger generations of X-Men from throughout their storied history. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 14, 2019

    This issue is exactly what I want from Dawn of X: making great use of the expanded cast and having a story that actually ties into the new status quo. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Dec 13, 2019

    New Mutants #3 is another excellent read. Ed Brisson has impressed the hell out of me with his incredible character work, dialogue, and richness of the story. New Mutants #3 is definitely worth picking up. Brisson has surprised me by making New Mutants one of the stronger titles in the X-Men franchise. If you have not given this title a chance then I would definitely recommend hopping aboard the New Mutants. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Jason Jeffords Jr Dec 11, 2019

    New Mutants #3 shifts the story from outer space to earth, focusing on a different team. This change of focus takes a few hits to the story but introduces a team that can be fun given time. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Dec 11, 2019

    Readers will not get the NEW MUTANTS they were expecting. They will get an out of place, slow-moving, boring tale about lesser-known new mutants with very little action and very little development to the overall narrative of the series. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Dec 12, 2019

    Overall this issue is more of what we know and have gotten before. The series is interesting in the fact that it will bounce between two writers and two stories. But other than that it’s still falling short on delivering a truly engaging story. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Jamie Lovett Dec 11, 2019

    New Mutants #3 is the first issue of the series without Jonathan Hickman as a cowriter. It's also the first issue to shift focus away from the original New Mutants. The results are a bit clumsy. Read Full Review
