As the road trip from hell enters its penultimate pit stop, our curious cuatro must make a choice that will FOREVER CHANGE THE WORLD...or at least change the course of HOBO HISTORY as we know it! With only a mysterious ass-map (yes, we said ass-map!) to guide them, Archer and Armstrong and Quantum and Woody are about out to discover the HOLE of America...uncover the secrets of their mysterious benefactor...and take down corporate America while they're at it! It's independent comics, we can do whatever we want, baby!

    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Oct 22, 2014

    In its winks, sly smirks and out-loud ostentation, The Delinquents #3 continues the unfortunately-impermanent miniseries' standing as one of the most purely entertaining comic books on the stands right now. If you're missing it, I honestly feel terrible for you. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Kate Coenen Oct 26, 2014

    The writing on this issue is solid as well. Something that seemed like a throwaway line in issue #1 turns out to significance to the plot of this issue, and James Asmus brings back a running joke from his run on Quantum and Woody. The characters' voices are unique and rendered well, and Archer's wide-eyed innocence among these degenerates is always good for a laugh. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Oct 22, 2014

    The Delinquents has only one issue left" I know, terrible new. On the positive side however, this penultimate issue gives us yet another entertaining series of events. Even if some of these events are a little too weird. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Gregory Paul Silber Oct 21, 2014

    It's a heck of an accomplishment if a creative team is able to make me laugh out loud once in a twenty page comic. I laughed out loud several times during my reading of this issue, sometimes more than once per page. Read Full Review

    I dont know if Id say the top of the mountain, but its certainly moving in the right direction, which is exactly where youd want your third issue to go. They have one more to take it home, and if issue three's improvement over two is any indication, it should be a satisfying finish. Read Full Review

    I concede again that I'm new to the Valiant universe. Having said that, I definitely want to learn more about it. To me,The Delinquents #3 is a great introduction to two pillar series Archer & Armstrong and Quantum and Woody. I want to know more and plan to (hopefully for Christmas). Read on now and enjoy the ride like these characters and creators do: shamelessly. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie Oct 23, 2014

    Im not necessarily saying that this issue wasnt needed to tell the story, or that I regret buying it when i could have as easily just read the review copy and left it at that. Honestly Im glad it exists for the montage scenes alone. Im just saying that this is unfortunately the low point in the series so far I think. That doesnt mean its bad though, only not as great.

    Lots of fun and equally offensive to everyone, though this still lacks some of the gut laughs Q&W used to give me. There is an interesting 48 panel double page action sequence that was awesome but also confusing to navigate at first.
