    Tyler vs. Rick is goind down in the next issue and, if you've been reading along, that should be more than enough incentive to check #3 out when it hits the stands. Simply put: FIVE WEAPONS is just a wonderful book that puts me in a great mood. It's a pleasant universe that I'm happy to dive into every month and I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Mar 27, 2013

    Five Weapons is a one of the most fun books I've read in a while. Robinson has created a world with some familiar elements that he really gets to play around with. It's really an all-ages read that both adults and younger readers will enjoy 5/5 Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Mar 28, 2013

    This is just a really smooth and compelling book " easy on the eyes and downright delightful in terms of story. And, as Vince noted, this is a great young adult read " particularly since the focus is on figuring out your identity in something of an oppressive setting. So, use your head: read “Five Weapons”.

    It's about time for Enrique to really show off his talents instead of coasting on some narrative trickery, but otherwise Robinson continues to deliver guilt-free fun. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Nuts - Jef Mendoza Apr 26, 2013

    Concludes the first fight in surprising fashion even though we know the main protagonist uses his smarts to fight. He's a regular young Sherlock Holmes. He always seems to want to make friends and does. So he's not a loner type who will get through this all by himself. Rick the Stick also doesn't seem to be a push over so the challenges do get more difficult for young Shainline. There are also so many mysteries to this world. Like how does the nurse know the future? Why does the Principle O wear a monocle? Why's Rick the Stick always mad? What's up with Shainline's family? This book keeps me constantly intrigued and I'm digging the action sequences and dialogue. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Mar 27, 2013

    Simply put, I don't think Five Weapons is for me, even with its Manga-esque feel and video game vibe - it just doesn't do anything or go anywhere, like a really cool-looking ninja who running in place. I said I was going to stick it out until the series' end, but I think I'll holster this sidearm because, for me at least, it's misfiring all over the place. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak Mar 31, 2013

    For a comic based on a school for assassins, there is very little action or violence. The plot is really predictable since it is a 5-part mini-series and there are only three student presidents left for Enrique to challenge. Many of the character designs are caricatures, with only the main protagonist having any substance in character development. Overall, the comic needs improvement. Read Full Review
