    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jul 16, 2014

    There are enough twists, turns and amazing dialog to easily forget the books few flaws and make it a worthwhile edition to any fans library. It might require some research, but frankly the world of The Witcher is vast and fascinating enough to make that research a great deal of fun. With the third game in the trilogy coming out and the third novel having a disappointing translation, this issue concludes a tale that was needed and, moreover, appreciated. Read Full Review

    The Daily Crate - Keri Honea Jul 14, 2014

    I am honestly very sad to see The Witcher comic series come to an end, especially since the next video game will not release until 2015. At the very least, it ended well and left me with zero questions and clamoring for more, more, more! I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that this was just a test of the waters from CD Projekt Red and Dark Horse, and another story arc will start up soon, becausesurely this run was successful.

    The Witcher is a great series, with some great reveals. You should really get into it. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Nevin Jones Jul 16, 2014

    It's hard to talk too much about this issue without getting too spoilery since most of it is big revelations. What I can say is that Tobin nails this story. This is the kind of story you'd find in one of the Witcher games or books. From the jarring neutrality of Geralt and the disturbing actions of the inhabitants of this world, The Witcher #5 is a worthy addition to Witcher lore. Read Full Review

    The Witcher #5 is a satisfying issue that brings a conclusion to Jakob and Marta's tale but leaves other threads wanting as a result of certain story developments not taking place until this issue as opposed to earlier in the series. Even though some aspects were obvious a couple of issues ago some developments were still surprising and entertaining. And the artwork by Joe Querio is at its best when the twisted natures of the characters shine through among other things. If you're a Witcher fan or enjoy fantasy elements mixed with intrigue then you might want to consider this series if you have patience on skip some middle issues. I just wish it was more eventful throughout. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jul 15, 2014

    This is meant to be the story of Geralt the Witcher, wandering adventurer and magic user yet he's barely present and had no agency or true connection to any of the events within this series, which is a pretty big screw-up given it's his name on the damn title when all he did was ramble in, stuff his face with wine, pork some succubus in a random bath tub and then wander off to parts unknown, our hero ladies and gentlemen; not recommended.

    Would have worked better as a 4 issue mini. Good ending though, it felt worthy of Sapkowski's stories...
