    I must admit, when I learned that Greenwood would be replacing Matthew Southworth on this latest arc of the story, I was apprehensive. While I think Greenwood is doing great work on The Fuse currently, I just wasn't sure how he'd fare on a book that already had an established tone and look. Thankfully, my apprehension was unfounded. The book's interiors look incredibly different from the first two arcs to now, but the transition has been smoother than I thought possible. Greenwood seems to have a knack for uncomfortable, close-up conversations and tense encounters, so between StumptownandThe Fuse, he has really found a comfortable niche for himself. This issue, in particular, shows off some of Greenwood's skills at revealing distrust and skepticism with just the twitch of any eye or the subtle movement of a perp's hand. Read Full Review

    Stumptown #5 evoked more pathos in me than I expected, which made for an utterly satisfying read. Rucka and Greenwood are a well-oiled machine telling a great mystery. It is worth your time to take a look at. Read Full Review

    Reading Stumptown #5, one gets the sense that Dex Parios has what it takes to join the ranks of iconic private eyes"she's our era's Phillip Marlowe or Jim Rockford. While these characters are woven into Dex's DNA, she's definitely her own person, though. Dex's relationships with her friends, family, and community have shaped her into the person we see on the page, and the hints that we get into her past are as compelling as the mystery which comprises the main plot. I can't wait until Dex takes up her next case. Read Full Review

    #5, along with the rest of the arc, is still compelling enough, but lacking the impact of the previous stories. Read Full Review
