The genre for Volume 3 is dark fantasy, which combines elements of horror with fantasy, typically based in a medieval setting, characterized by a gloomy atmosphere and an ominous tone.

"As far as genre-based anthologies go, Ex.Mag #01 is about as strong as they come. . . . It's campy, it's fun"
Touissant Egan, The Comics Journal
". . . this year’s most ambitious anthology series"
Arpad Lep, The Beat
". . . Peow have really set the bar high. By the time you get to the end of the anthology, you only want there to be more epic adventures to get lost into. . . . and we cannot help but want to slay any interfering dragons to get more of what they are providing for us, consistently, time and time again."
Rebecca Burke, Broken Frontier
