    I honestly didn't know what to expect from this issue as a whole when I first started reading, but I definitely know now that we're being set up for some killer stuff. But before I end this review, I do want to point out that the colors were terrific. Colorists sometimes seem to be the unsung heroes of a series, but I want to make sure that I make a point to give credit where credit is due. There were a few panels that really made me glad that I still read this series. Eva De La Cruz should be proud. So as you can see, as a whole this series continues to impress. I can't remember the last time that I was satisfied with every single issue of an ongoing book. I know that it hasn't been out for that long, but it's definitely staying in my pull. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Dec 17, 2013

    Really, the one issue people may have with this book is the art. At times, it can seem a little bland, especially the faces characters, which lack detail. That being said, this is made up for by all of the other crazy things that Inaki Miranda draws. The town of Coffin Hill is very well realized visually, and every other aspect of the book looks great. The art is extremely fluid for the most part, and the lack of facial detail doesn't detract too much from the stellar story that is being told in Coffin Hill #3. Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Dec 11, 2013

    There are a number of moving parts to this story -- almost too many. But Kittredge handles the many threads of her story with impressive grace. Eve's domestic dramas -- namely, her complicated relationship with the local police chief and her hostile encounters with her mother -- play out against a backdrop of modernized gothic horror. The creepiness of Coffin Hill oozes across every page, tainting even the most mundane of events. And it isn't just the forest that's full of terrors. As a friend from her past reveals that there's more than one major malevolent force in town, Eve's past and present collide in a beautiful, chaotic mess. Read Full Review

    So yeah, great story, great art, but not-so-great cover. All in all, Coffin Hill is still a pretty great comic. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Dec 15, 2013

    Coffin Hill #3 is a book with many secrets and mysteries that can quite possibly leave the audience wondering what exactly is happening. However, its mysteries are interesting so far, its characters are well developed, and its artwork is just downright beautiful in its eeriness. For those seeking a more complex horror story, this may be right up your alley. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Daren Taveras Dec 12, 2013

    Coffin Hill is shaping up to be a very thought-provoking tale. With inventive and original storytelling and an incredible artist, this series is growing into its own shell, and bloodily breaking out of it to terrify its readers. Coffin Hill #3 excels its previous installment and if the same amount of momentum and attention to detail is displayed in future releases, the series will become a must-buy. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Meagan Damore Dec 13, 2013

    "Coffin Hill" #3 has the seeds of great potential in its natural-sounding dialogue, great characterization, and solid artwork. However, the book is unfortunately bogged down by awkward pacing and unoriginal character design. Kittredge and Miranda's latest issue feels as though it's on the verge of something great; if it nails down these loose threads, the book could become a must-read. Read Full Review
