This volume takes a step back from character driven, complex plot line
and concentrates on....
Giant explosions,
senseless bashing of things,
big group fights (that feature funny-in-a-bad-way groups of superheroes in ridiculous costumes:) and that sort of things...
And lets not forget giant rock thing that wants to destroy man kind!
Still good action-packed fun, though.

It's more of the same, but that's not a bad thing. Volume 3 really seems to act as a bridge between the dramatic events of volume 2, and the series wrapping up with volume 4.

I really love this series, and I love all it's ties to Invincible. Blew through this volume and look forward to volume 4.

I like Kirkman a lot, both with his Walking Dead series and with Invincible. Wolf-Man was a side character in the Invincible universe originally, and it's good to see him with his own series (albeit with some crossover characters, such as Cecil).

Admittedly, I haven't read Volumes 2 or 3 yet, so hopefully that clears the story up a bit further for me, but from what I can tell this volume has Kirkman's trademark superhero storytelling techniques, along with the very accessible illustrations of Ja

In this volume it finally feels like writer Robert Kirkman hits his stride, or at least the solid story telling that many of us are used to from him. The pacing improved considerably, and Kirkman gives us Gary's much needed back story, and that helps the reader develop some feeling for Gary (the Wolf Man). In addition, Zechariah's story is wrapped up (well almost-there's a little more to come). Frankly Zechariah has been one of the most boring of the supporting cast.

Better than the previous volume, but still only ok. The plot itself is fun, but some of the writing is just really cheesy, and the cliffhangers are just terribly ridiculous. There's still something nice in the series--some potential, definitely some fun moments--but it always feels like it should be better.

I missed much of the back-story in not reading volumes one and two first. Given this, my impressions are naturally limited. The blending of traditional horror staples (werewolves and vampires) with the superhero structure intrigued me.

Wanted to really like this but something about it I don't care for. Little over vampires and werewolves so I only skimmed most of it and got bored. I like walking dead so much more!!!

Let's just say I'm glad I checked the Astounding Wolf-Man out from the library instead of buying it. I think I would have a more negative impression had I spent money on this.
