    Breitweiser's art and the undersea mystery combine to make a compelling tale that had me double-check the credits at one point to make sure that Jeff Parker wasn't writing and that I didn't wind up with an "Agents of Atlas" comic. This Defenders story is off the beaten path, but it does loop back around to tie with the series to this point. That said, it feels as though this series has set the foundation it needed to in order to begin truly building. Now, the Defenders are ready to start discovering who and what they really are.

    For me, Matt Fraction hasn't put a foot wrong and things continue to look promising for this offbeat team book. If you're look for a reason to read The Defenders, or you're looking for a great place to start, look no further than #5. Read Full Review

    Well, this issue sure made my decision to drop this series easy! Sorry, but I'm not going to pay $4 for a series that I have zero interest in. Plus the next issue brings us Fat Cobra and the Immortal Weapons?! The only thing missing would have been an appearance by Our Lord and Savior Hope to really up the suck quotient! So yeah, this is officially the final issue of this series I'll be buying. But then, with the way this series has been falling down the sales charts, it may not be around much longer anyway.
