    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Oct 31, 2009

    The conclusion of the first volume of Dynamo 5 is five dollars, but Jay Faerber isn't merely upping the price at the cost of story. He's doubling the pages for a slam-bang finale and a series of short introductions to the newest look of Dynamo 5. Bonus points for the dissection of Due South in "Under the Influence" where Faerber reveals his inspirations. I love that show. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 30, 2009

    Dynamo 5 was once one of the hottest titles on the stands and, while things might have cooled off for it in 2009, this issue sets things in motions for a comeback in a big way. Jay Faerber works with a slew of great artists to establish an exciting new status quo as he closes one chapter for the series and begins a new one. The only bad thing about this issue? It is Mahmud Asrar's last as the regular artist! Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a good anniversary issue, with a nice showing by Asrar (his last on the book, mind you) and some fun stuff from Jay Faerber with the kids. The powers have been essentially a MacGuffin thus far, with the characters and their ineractions taking center stage. While I'm troubled that the "siblings switching powers" routine reminds me of Marvel's 'Power Pack' series from the 80's, it's still nicely done overall. The switching artists do create some varying quality in the solo stories (Bridget's story in particular making her very unattractive and weirdly anime-inspired) but at least none of the characters physically resembles one another. I was entertained to see them trade their so-so superhero names for an entirely new set of so-so superhero names, but again, the codenames aren't really the point, here. The issue also ends with the difficult announcement that the book will be on hiatus, and probably will be returning as a series of miniseries ala Astro City and Hellboy, m Read Full Review
