    Penny Dreadful #3 is like one great reminiscing dream. You experience the dream like sensation in both the writing and the art. Andrew Hinderaker is able to not only pick up right from the previous issue, but he takes his time to flesh out Malcolm allowing us to see his personality shine through. Louie De Martinis continues his excellent work with the art. As the tone and style of the story changes, so does the art. The use of shadows and details brings to life the dialog and story.

    Though Penny Dreadful #3 doesn't advance its own plot forward by much, this installment is still a must-read for fans clamoring for a bit more time in its grim world. Read Full Review

    Once again Andrew Hinderaker has a deft handle on the characters, filling in the blanks of their lives before the series while never losing sight of who they were when the series started. Unfortunately, once again, the artwork doesnt hold up. Its boring, without clear focus on backgrounds or characters. Had it not been explicitly stated that the characters were in Africa there would be no way of telling whatsoever. As this series goes on I can only hope that Shane Pierce or Guillem March will take over full time in the artwork department so that it will finally rise up to the quality of the writing.
