    American Zealot continues its upward climb with issue #3 and there are still a few things weighing down what could otherwise be another great series. Read Full Review

    With only two more issues to go, I am at a bit of a crossroads with U.S. Agent #3. There are some individual things that I like about this issue and series as a whole. When Priest focuses on John Walker, the series tends to shine more. When Priest veers from that, it seems to struggle to find ground or enough space to get Priest's full thoughts out. The art has some good panels and pages here and there but, as a whole, just is not as high-quality as one would expect. All this combines so that after three issues, with only two left to go, I question if is it worth it to pick up the final two issues. The art probably isn't going to get better, but I am interested to see where this leaves John Walker as a character. Read Full Review

    It's a cold thing how they make this book impossible to find through databases. It's fitting though, because U.S. Agent is a diamond in the ruff. Only in a book like this could a pizza guy turn out to be a supervillain, familal melodrama can actually appear to be dangerous (as opposed to anything the DCU on CW can deliver), and rednecks in the P.C. , post - Trump - era can actually seem endearing.
    Splash pages have been given a new life in this book , with enough script stuffed in two pages of action that this could be mistaken for a chapter of One Piece, except of course it wouldn't because this book isn't drawn as cramped.
    There is plenty of room to breathe here despite this book being stuffed with three storylines within thr more

    I think I liked this issue more than the previous few. There's still a problem with the structure of the story, because Priest can't seem to help himself, even when it's a five issue miniseries. But! Priest is getting into some interesting ideas here about America, which didn't seem quite so present in the previous issues. The scene with John at the protests was great! That was a really well done scene. Then you have Saint and Battlestar who have an awesome fight scene that's also used to display, quite viscerally, the harms of the concept of model minorities. It's really well done, and I just wish that Priest was more consistent.

    I find the structure of this comic very annoying.

    Good ideas at play here. Some good scenes. Nuanced characters.

    John Walker isn't perfect... he's a slightly old fashioned American, he isnt Steve Rogers and has more skeletons in his closet than most. But he's still a good man. What he's being thrown into here is a good scenario Priest has set up, where he is up against people with way more bureaucratic power than him and less empathy for the people he's trying to protect.

    In this issue his old partner Lemar Hoskins is sent into the hot zone looking for Walker but finds himself in the crosshairs of the new U.S.Agent, a black man who sees the world very differently than Hoskins does. There ideological battle naturally becomes a physical one, which is the highlight more

    The individual scenes and the character work are halfway to brilliant, but the way everything fits together is too opaque. I think this is one of those miniseries that just doesn't work as an episodic read; I expect it'll have a much bigger impact on me once I can read the whole thing in one sitting.
