Sabretooth and the other exiled mutants have stopped fighting each other long enough to start working together. They might not like one another, but they all want out of the Pit. You'd think their biggest obstacle would be the Professor or Magneto...but no. The greatest obstacle will be one of their own.

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Apr 29, 2022

    Everything is going according to plan as the cast of mutant exiles begins their journey to secure their freedom but also bring the curtain crashing down to reveal the truth of Krakoa's sins. Such a deep and gorgeous and thoughtful issue, continuing the energy and amazing work this creative team has done so far. A title with the name Sabretooth upon it is sure to turn many away, but this is truly one of the best X-related books we've ever gotten. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 4, 2022

    Sabretooth #3 switches things up on everyone in the best possible way. It's definitely one of the most brilliant books on the market right now. LaValle is doing an amazing job, and this book is already one of the best things from the Krakoa era. Kirk and Beredo's art is excellent and the perfect accoutrement to the writing. Sabretooth is a must-read comic, but that's not terribly surprising. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Apr 26, 2022

    Bits and PiecesSabretooth #3 successfully plants the seeds of rebellion on Krakoa when the cracks of corruption have long since spread. LaValle demonstrates why Creed, even when trapped in a comatose state, is still one of the most dangerous mutants around. With excellent writing but admittedly little action, this offshoot of the X-Titles shows the most promise for the future of Krakoa. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Jeremy Carter Apr 30, 2022

    Sabertooth #3 is another interesting entry in the series. It's nice to see Creed in a different role instead of just a vicious killer. LaValle does a remarkable job of humanizing one of comics greatest psychopaths. The artwork brings the story to life in a realistic and intriguing way. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 27, 2022

    Sabretooth #3 is an interesting issue that'll have you thinking about life, manipulation, and the prison system. It's a series that feels mature in its approach. Lavalle is very good at making you think about these characters and how the machinations of culture, society, and choice affect them. By extension, that may go for your own life as well.

    Sabretooth #3 is another impressive bit of commentary on the horrors of America's carceral state and a key flaw in Krakoa's fictional foundations. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Apr 27, 2022

    Sabretooth #3 is ramping up the plot with an exciting escape plan and a good character study on the titular character. While this issue finds itself lacking in comparison to the past two issues in terms of action and fantastical locations, it's nevertheless a good step in the right direction plot-wise.
