    Long Lost #3 is a fantastic read that will leave you wanting more. Matthew has written a story full of mystery and intrigue that would make Chris Carter proud. Lisa's artwork is fantastic and gets creepier with each issue. Read Full Review

    Long Lost #1 and #2 took time to establish layers of emotion and plot, giving readers complicated characters to root for and a story that unfurls in unexpected ways each issue. Every issue asks more questions than it answers, but it also creates momentum, but the third advances the plot in a way that adds motion as well as depth. Long Lost #3 is another compelling issue in a series full of emotion and mystery. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Jennifer DeRoss Jan 18, 2018

    All in all, this is a series that has shown a lot of promise from the start, but it took awhile for it to feel like it was all coming together. This is not a bad thing. In fact, I think the choice to start out with slower world building issues will be one of the strengths of the story as a whole. If you have been waiting to give this series a try, now is your time to get caught up. It seems certain that the gore will be ripening soon. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Carrie McClain Jan 31, 2018

    Curiously, this comic always manages to open and close in poetic fashion. I can't seem to put it down once I've started reading it even when the panels showcase the weird turn of events that sprout up each issue. If nothing else, Erman and Sterle are taking their time carefully to balance the mood and the action of each issue and so far it is a satisfying reward to come back to as a reader. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Feb 5, 2018

    Writer Matthew Erman plants some interesting seeds in Long Lost #3. This world is expanding more and more with each chapter and it's only getting stranger and scarier. The utter normalcy of Piper and Frances contrasts nicely with this world of bizarre terrors they've encountered so far. I can't imagine what else is in store for them with the rest of the series.

    Bleeding Cool - Lacey Jan 30, 2018

    In the end, I find that issue #3 isn't so much weaker as it is different " and that's something that I think might actually draw more readers in. It's certainly showing its scarier side, morphing from sinister, creepy family bonding to snowballing fear. If this is a hint of how Long Lost is beginning to grow into itself, then I cannot wait to see how far Erman and Sterle take it. Read Full Review

    Long Lost #3 takes a dive into its mysterious world, but the electrifying dynamic between Frances and Piper becomes "lost" as they travel deeper into the woods. Read Full Review
