    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Oct 26, 2019

    Doctor Mirage #3 is easily the most powerful entry in the dark, yet remarkably vivid series that will absolutely capture your imagination. Take note, this is how you do cliffhangers. Read Full Review

    I've loved literally every page of this series so far. While I've been reviewing them based on a review pdf, it's the physical comic that shines so well. I say this because I have also been buying the series, in part because I wanted to see the art without a watermark on it and in part, because I will always try to buy the books I enjoy in order to support the series.

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Oct 22, 2019

    This new Dr. Mirage story gets more intricate and fascinating with each issue. The stakes are high, but there is still more to be revealed as to exactly where she is, what is going on and why. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Oct 23, 2019

    Doctor Mirage #3 was a surreal masterpiece. The artwork and the plot combined to leave the reader unsure of the truth. And the end result was something luminous and vibrant. I already can't wait to get my hands on the next issue, and I know I'm not going to be alone in feeling that way. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 30, 2019

    Though a bit light on plot substance, Dr. Mirage gives us some good character material here throughout. I like the back and forth between Shan and Grace that goes on more regularly than one might expect simply because Shan is done with a lot of happenings. And there's probably a bit in her head wondering if she really is dead. Robles' artwork is a big part of the draw here for me with some great visuals for locations and what they're going through and I love the Embalmer visual as well, especially as more physical interactions got underway with Shan. The halfway mark is here and I'm really curious as to where Visaggio is taking us with the remainder. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 23, 2019

    A little bit more has been revealed about the mystery, and the things seem to be going in an interesting direction. Even if this particular issue feels more of an exercise in replicating kind of magic, which has been bound to the page by more prominent publishers elsewhere. The story could potentially turn into something really special as it further mystery is revealed in the final issues of the miniseries. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Oct 25, 2019

    I am intrigued by the premise of Dr. Mirage #3. I like the uncertainty of whether it takes place somewhere in the Deadside, or in Grace's head, or even in Shan's own mind. Because of this uncertainty, it is also a little nebulous as far as what is actually going on. I like the exploration into themes of loss, though. Read Full Review

    Although I wanted to like Dr. Mirage #3 a bit more than I did, it is still a very entertaining and interesting comic book that makes me want to know how it all shakes out.

    Nick Robles is still solid on the art and the narrative is still trippy, but this issue feels like the monthly schedule is starting to take a toll. That's not so bad since the story holds together enough to move the story forward to the cliffhanger ending.

    Grace may not be telling the whole truth, but she proves to be resourceful and daring. As for Shan Fong Mirage, she may be in a situation she might not be able to get out of.
