    Even though Suicide Risk #5 steps away from the main conflict, it's story is compelling and engaging–and most obviously tied to the series as a whole–that it doesn't matter. Instead, it speaks to Carey's skill as a writer when it comes to putting relatable characters through the wringer and presenting them with complex moral choices that they often come out on the wrong side of. This is great stuff, folks, so get on it. Read Full Review

    I'm still undecided as to whether Suicide Risk as a whole is a read or buy. It has a great premise, but can sometimes be bogged down by the ubiquitous heroes and villains and their often corny names (i.e. Just A Feeling, seriously?). Regardless, I clearly recommend this issue, so go get it and decide for yourself if you want to take a risk and delve into Carey's suicidal world. Read Full Review

    “Suicide Risk” continues to be one an interesting examination of superheroes and how they would use those powers if they existed in today's world. Not since Greg Rucka and Ed Brubaker's landmark run on Gotham Central have we had a title that examines the ramifications of regular people coming into contact with superpowers and how it effects those around them. Carey is doing a great job building the world and the characters in “Suicide Risk”, so we can only hope that the sales support this title so we can see what he has in store for readers.

    I'm still enjoying this series, with the writing in this issue being particularly sly and seductive, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes, and where this all fits. I'm guessing somewhere inside Instant Access? OOOOOH! Read Full Review
