    It should come as no surprise that I love this book. Vault having been putting out quality books for a while now and this is no exception. The only downside I can see to this issue is that it is not really “jump on point” friendly, so to enjoy this book at it's best, you will need to check out those back issues bins, if there are any copies left of this brilliantly crafted tale.

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Feb 6, 2019

    These Savage Shores #3 is so much more than a standard horror story. It spans different sorts of horror and betrayal, from that at an individual level to the betrayal of armies or kingdoms. I love seeing a story of conflict with the East India Company from the point of view of the country that is trying to deal with them. I don't know if this story is going to end well for anyone involved " it could be a great tragedy all around " but it is richly full of complex characters that we grow to care about even if we don't like them all the time.

    Overall I enjoyed the first issue of These Savage Shores, but last issue's big reveal is what really engaged me. It left a huge impact, and I couldn't wait to read These Savage Shores #3. This issue is great, and it comes with its own set of impressive moments that are doubtlessly going to stick with me for awhile. I'm giving this issue a full five stars. It's just an amazing work of art! Read Full Review

    The Khan is dead. War is right around the corner. But something doesn't seem right. Ram V continues to unweave his tale masterfully, giving us more about who the characters are. Sumit Kumar and Vittorio Astone do a phenomenal job with using the art to keep us on our toes. All this is topped off with lettering by Aditya Bidikar, who brings perfectly placed and lined letters.

    Each issue of These Savage Shores has been the best chapter in the story so far, and #3 is no exception. A chapter packed with set pieces and hard-earned big moments, this is a comic that makes me feel unbelievably lucky we have this book. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Mickey Rivera Feb 11, 2019

    Panel by panel, page by page, These Savage Shores flows forth carrying shiny fragments of written history on its surface. Using the combined blood and honor of disparate cultures, this story illuminates the brutality and romance of a shared past. Plainly: It's an amazing story, and it's only going to get deeper, better, bloodier. Read Full Review
