    Five Weapons #6 is a great start to this new arc and return for this series. It has a well-told story and likeable cast, is great from a technical writing standpoint, and features solid artwork. It's not a series that'll make you think, be very serious and deep, or try to revolutionize comics themselves. No, it is a series that is about having fun, giving the audience an enjoyable experience, and you know what? It does it with flying colors. If you need a break from the super serious stories out there, this is the comic for you. Read Full Review

    This, like the old series, is a page turner. It's a great story, with a great build up and the art is excellent. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jan 29, 2014

    FIVE WEAPONS is back and as wonderful as ever. Jimmie Robinson kicks off the second volume by making the stage even bigger than the first volume. There's more characters, there's more mystery, and there's most definitely more conflict. To spice things up, there's a whole new twist with the protagonist, and it's one that's sure to keep us guessing how he'll solve each problem as they appear. I strongly recommend FIVE WEAPONS #6 to anyone looking for a refreshing and fun story. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Oscar Russell Jan 30, 2014

    Robinson, has now put Enrique in a very familiar setting but there are so many new things and problems for Enrique to contend with. It does appear that we are going to see a different direction for the book itself, but the lead character has stayed very much the same. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Feb 3, 2014

    "Five Weapons" #6 is a great example of how to turn a mini-series into an ongoing series. It's not just a rehash of what's come before, but rather an expansion of the original concept and moving into new and interesting places. With a collection of "Five Weapons" #1-5 also on sale, now is as good a time as any to see what you've been missing out on. Good stuff. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Jan 27, 2014

    Even though it's nice to return to all of the characters we loved in Five Weapons, we will have to see as time goes on if there was a need to return to the school after such a solid opening arc. This issue isn't a bad start, there are a few parts that seemed like a mildly awkward transition from the previous arc to this new one such as the friendship between Enrique and Tyler. At the same time since this went from a mini-series to an ongoing can usually be a clunky transition but Five Weapons pulls it off better than most. As a reader we will have to see how this story progresses and hope Jimmie Robinson can capture the magic that made the first five issues so exciting to read every month. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jan 30, 2014

    The School of the Five Weapons, in many ways, feels like a demented children's TV show, with all the imagination and energy to match. Jimmie Robinson - aided by some bright colorwork by Paul Little - gives this book a real visual bounce that makes some of the clunkier sections easier to get through. Read Full Review
