    Secret Wars 2099 #5 is a more than worthwhile entry, truth be told I wanted a bit more space considering everything that happens within this plot. But ultimately what we have is a rock solid package that warrants a place as your event tie-in collection continues to expand. Read Full Review

    The art wasn't always my favorite, but this series was entertaining from beginning to end. Some of the highlights include a beautiful diverse cast of heroes, the homage the series paid to iconic Marvel scenes both old and new, and the dual identities of Captain America and Roberta.

    While I had fun with aspects of this series I found myself largely still dealing with the same problems I had with the Spider-Man 2099 series. It's not its own thing. The book is obviously a Secret Wars tie-in so I make no bones about that but everything here is just in service to other events like the other book was and it never feels like it gets to define itself. I've long enjoyed Peter David's works and the combination with Will Sliney has made for some great fun, but the time period as a whole is in desperate need of a fresh start. And I'm not sure that we'll get that with what's to come and it makes me very wary of it. The main saving grace of the series has been the artwork for me as Sliney is a solidly reliable artist that gets to flex in some fun ways here. It's a fun little diversion but it makes me long for a chance for this period and whatever characters we get to have time to build itself up without any interference. Read Full Review

    Secret Wars 2099 #5 provided lots of action, but as a series finale, it lacked dynamic characters and an overarching theme. Read Full Review

    I was high on this book for the first few issues, but it ended up as empty. That seems to be a trend with the majority of Secret Wars books, so I don't completely blame Peter David. This stuff presents the illusion of depth, and it goes absolutely no where.
