Groom Lake #3 reviewed

GROOM LAKE #3 is in stores tomorrow, June 17, and ComicBookResources.com has run the first review (that I've seen).

He said other nice things, but I like this particular bit since it always makes me happy when things in the comic get received in the way they were intended:

"The book’s general tone is aloof and sarcastic with Ryall using captions judiciously to describe the alien enthusiasts at the beginning of the issue with mocking phrases, or using repetition for humor. When we first see the aircraft sent to bring back the flying saucer, captions describe the three types, the first two described as “don’t officially exist” with the third type described, “Definitely don’t exist. But cost a shit-ton to build.” It’s little winks to the reader like that that make the book fun."
