    The Cull lands its third five-star review in as many months. The series is unparalleled in its incredible storytelling and delicious artwork. With just two issues to go it seems like we may be entering the end game and I cannot wait to see what happens next.

    The Story: The story is getting more intense in this issue and continues to be an exciting, compelling and engaging ride. The story is inventive and incredibly interesting. There are some great moments of revelation throughout the issue and I love the transformation of the characters and what it means for the rest of the story. I loved the action in the issue and the final cliffhanger makes me excited to see what happens next.

    The Art: De Iulis offers some truly magnificent art on every page of this issue. The visual style is captivating and draws in the reader with every page and panel.

    The Cull #3 is yet another example of the creative team delivering something entirely new and exciting. I have no idea where this is going and can only imagine how freaky things will get. The character work takes a bit of a back seat, but we’ve had plenty enough as it is to allow the fantastical to let loose.

    The writing by Kelly in The Cull is perfect between this group of friends. The back and forth, the banter, and the genuine care can be seen throughout these issues. That coupled with Mattia’s art makes the comic feel like it is a live action experience. The facial expressions, the colors that appear at the right time throughout the issue pointing to important experiences that need to be noticed by the reader, and the action all come together making a must read series.

    The Cull is a definite recommend comic title from me.

    The Cull evolves into something greater as it dives deeper into its fantastical world. This fast-paced issue brings a fascinating twist for the story to get even weirder from here.

    The Cull #3 does a wonderful job diving deeper into the fantastical world Kelly Thompson and Mattia De Iulis have created. The cast shine individually and as a group with what they go through in the mysterious world they are exploring. Their experiences are elevated by the amazing visuals that continue to steal the show and make this a must-read series.

    The realism of the art can still be off-putting from time to time, but it’s hard to argue that it isn’t effective. As these character experience more imaginative and terrifying circumstances, making them look so human gets you more personally involved in their experience. This story is clearly filled with a lot of twists and turns, and a lot will depend on how they pan out down the line.

    This issue finally starts to deliver on what’s happening within this fantastical universe our main characters stumbled up and how it all ties to the first couple of pages that were teased in the debut issue. The characters are still making some of the worst horror-trope decisions possible to move the plot along, but their individual moments of gaining new powers is a sight to see. Nothing feels new or unique about the story still, but the art by Mattia De Iulis is what really separates this book from anything with a similar plot that it may be compared to.
