    This series is never dull and never lets up. Even when it’s easy, it’s still very hard to figure out. If you’re reading the series then you’re in for a treat as this issue manages to top the last issue just barely. It’s full of great character moments and ends in the perfect place because Dex could be screwed in the very next panel. If you haven’t read the series yet, but have enjoyed anything Rucka has written ever then do yourself a favor and buy the issue. Take a chance on the series and see if it’s worth tracking down the rest of it (it is) for yourself. You can also check out our preview of this issue as well. Read Full Review

    This is a series that is not getting a lot of attention, but certainly deserves it. Emotion, action and suspense along with Dex's exceptional ability to deduce the facts in the case makes this a series you want to keep your eye on. Read Full Review

    The guitar is a catalyst to a deeper mystery that Dex is getting pulled down into. Rucka and Southworth know that they mystery isn't simply who took the guitar but why? Why was the guitar taken? Why was Dex hired? And why did it simply show up at her house? You'll want to turn in next issue for that. Read Full Review

    Overall this was a great read, and I would read it again and again. The writing style and subject matter match the art and color style perfectly. It's a laid back comic that won't leave you laid back at all. If you're looking for a good drama story with no sci-fi, no fantasy, no super powers, just plain people part of an amazing story, then Oni Press' Stumptown is a great read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Nov 7, 2012

    "Stumptown" #3 is a great step within the overall tale, but as a single issue it slices thin. Dex steps closer to a resolution but also wanders into the fray in order to tie it all closed. The smaller moments between Dex and her brother or the interrogation from the police ring true and add depth to the characters and the world. Hopefully the next issue works harder on the story so as to remind readers of the focus. After all, there is no P.I. without a case to solve. Read Full Review
