    Supurbia #5 is an interesting one. This definitely feels like a "lock and load" issue, where everyone is getting ready to embark on some adventure, rather than any action taking place, other than Aso's raid on Batu's tribe. Even though there's a lot of story, not a whole hell of a lot happens here. In fact, this is the first time Supurbia has felt cramped to me, with almost too many plot threads bumping elbows to keep up with effectively, and a lack of the oomph in previous issues. Again, I understand that the pace is slowed here to allow new readers to catch up, but I'll be happy when Randolph goes back to exploring the domesticated pathos within these characters rather than worrying about rehashing set-up.

    The ending cliffhanger promises a new wave in the plot, and overall, "Supurbia" is still a good read, enjoyable like a good TV show while still occasionally showing that deeper layer of social or psychological insight underneath the gloss. Read Full Review
