    There are no gods in the pages of Amethyst, yet those creating this workare comic deities! Stalker, however, is a wash, and it impacts my grade on the entire book. Read Full Review

    This issue nicely builds upon the mythology that Marx has very well developed from the start of this book. It's still building up a lot of things that I am very sad may never play out. This book could really be epic. Unfortunately, it won't get the chance. The art is simply gorgeous and suits the story perfectly. Amaya is an engaging lead and at least she may carry on in Justice League Dark. The Amethyst concept is so good, it would be tragic to simply have it evaporate into the ether, while Red Hood and the Outlaws and The Ravagers are allowed to carry on. Read Full Review

"Soul to Soul" has excellent pacing and thus becomes the stronger story fragment in "Sword of Sorcery" #5, showing neatly that plot execution can be more crucial than ideas. Read Full Review
