   Terrible condition
Well, it was the product I wanted, but arrived in very bad condition, the whole bottom part is damaged, the back side and the corners plus the ugly netflix print on the front.

   Different but worth the read!
I watched the Netflix show and thought I would check out the book to see how things have stacked up. There are similarities between the show and the books, but the feel is very different. I thought the books focused more on the team and superheroes, while the show focused more on each character and their development. Both are good, but if you expect the same exact storylines between medium and disappointed. It is a fun read!

   Good read
I don 't want to spoil it, so I keep it short. This whole collection is in our library and the kids go back to it every now and again to read some portions to compare to the show. I bought it twice by mistake! I think so yea I would buy again!

   Now I eagerly await the next installment
After reading the show's season 1 and 2, I started binging the source material. There are so many changes that I can 't even describe. The biggest is frankly the frenetic pace off the comic book and the characterization of the show. I always feel like I'm a little lost when reading the books and the characters feel a bit looser than the show's counterpart. I'm excited for Vol 4, but I'm much more interested in the season 3.

   Delivery botched
In the condition that the book arrived in, disappointed. I know that the content is not damaged, but I bought a new book and expected nothing less.

   I'm intrigued
I found this comic book very entertaining ''. It is fun, unique and witty. I can 't wait to read more. It is an interesting choice for the comic book genre of superheroes.

   Hardest to follow of the series.
I am not entirely sure what happened or who the villains are in this volume.

   Place comic in a package not a box (or a bigger box) 👍
Today I got this comic book, but the only problem I have with it is the fact that I chose the option to reduce boxed in incoming mail. DO NOT choose this option, my comic came in bent in the upper right and looks like some sort of a tear out of the upper left. I don 't own any comics, but I would have appreciated that they came in a more secure manner. I am not trying to be dramatic, but I ask if I am buying the comic book new, come in a bigger box or in sleeve that way things like this don 't happen. The driver was overall kind enough to hand it over and looks great through it!

   Way loses his way....
Like that band you used so much you bought their new CDs without first listening to them and you realize that they aren 't that good anymore. Back to you, give us our money! The art is still great, but the story is a little different. I usually think lazy at this point. Way has gotten too over-indulgent with his storytelling. David Lynch likes might be a good comparison to where Way is now. As long as people keep buying it, I guess who can blame him? But at some point, you can 't sell ill-conceived, weird for the sake of strangeness, passionless story writing that I don 't think that even he thinks is probably not all that good anymore. Trying to imitate an acid trip requires more skill than just a photo. Way seems to have put very little effort into it, and I did not bother with finishing it. Many old academy folks will be let down I am sure. And there is no real reason for a completist to feel that they need it. With the art being good, this looks at least like the solid old days.

   Lower your expectations
The synopsis for Volume 3 can be reduced to a single sentence, a number of superhero - criminals break out of their prison and a big fight ensues. Probably one of the most basic conventions in comic books, and it is hard to believe that it has been resorted to so early. If you read and enjoyed volumes 1 + 2 dramatically lower your expectations and appreciate the first few pages before the Fort Rozz Redux replaces all traces of character development.
