After agreeing to help defeat the mysterious being known as the Whisperer, Cave imbibes "Night Pudding" (a concoction reserved for only the strongest warriors and the truly metal) with King P'Thrall, while Chloe experiences the local scene with a group of subterranean teenagers. What could possibly go wrong? And if something did go wrong, it's all good-because Cave knows some big league heroes who are just a phone call away, so... Plus: a new "Super Powers" tale by Tom Scioli!

    As always Michael Avon Oeming, Nick Filardi and Clem Robins artwork, colors and letters (yes letters, I cannot emphasize enough how much Robins letters bring to the story) elevate the storyline from awesome to sublime. From the head trip, to the action sequences to the flashbacks you are fully immersed in every moment, as it happens. Combine that with the little nods to DC Comics eighty years of history scattered throughout each and every issue and youve got artists who not only know their stuff but are clearly having a great time doing what they do.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Feb 15, 2017

    The extent of EBX's nefarious scheme is revealed and drugs are consumed, and not in that order. Oeming's usual ever-changing style looks even more dynamic in this issue, a by-product of either the substances consumed in-story or Oeming growing more comfortable with the series, or both. Whatever the case, I welcome it. This is one of the most unique books around and it seems to draw me deeper with every issue. Read Full Review

    Definitely a bridge to the big final fight but undoubtedly full of great character moments. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Feb 15, 2017

    Like all the Young Animal titles, Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye is doing something very different in its approach while at the same time fitting into a recognizable genre. Ostensibly, a sci-fi/adventure book, the underlying theme of family is strong enough that it permeates the narrative making this title about how families relate. The emotional impact hits the right beats to keep it from just being characterization and brings it to the forefront. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Feb 15, 2017

    A visual feast that never lets up, Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye is the tripped out story that keeps getting better and weirder as it goes on. This issue slows its pace down with a lot of exposition, but it's still good times in the cave world underneath our feet. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 15, 2017

    In short, my love for the Young Animal books and their off-beat humor still persists, and this issue gives us a little more plot and a killer cliffhanger to make us all wonder what happens next and who will survive. Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye #5 is exciting, well-drawn and fun, with even the moments of conversation staying visually exciting and providing a solid framework on which to hide the weird bits.

    Comic Crusaders - Tracy Sayers Feb 21, 2017

    I must say this is a weird comic. It's a bit all over the place at times but it seems to be trying to condense too much into one issue. I think this is an unusual read and not something I would normally pick up but it was interesting to read. So if you like your 80's B movies this comic is for you. 3out of 5 Read Full Review
