In her review for Karass #6 of August 1974, Linda Bushyager writes of Whatever issue 3; "Maybe the genzine is not really dead...This is 45 pages and very much reminds me of Interplanetary Corn Chips and many other genzines which were so prevalent 3 years ago. It is nicely mimeoed with lots of white space...effort has been made in layout to give a neat appearance. Interesting editorial, astrology article (Chinese astrology), SF movie article, Fiction, reviews, locs...Mark and Paula have a lot of enthusiasm and are trying. GOOD."
