It's sad that this book is getting ignored very badly. Newton is an interesting villain. I love how the sorcerers play off the avengers very well, especially with Spider-Man's jibs. The art of Rorigues, Lopez and Bellaire is authentic comic book feel and nothing is wrong with it. Sad that next issue may be the last.

This arc, which the series has been building up to since its beginning, is disappointing me a little. James Tynion's plot is weaker than usual. The dialogues between Batman and Ra's al Ghul are lengthy, the other members of the teams are absent and the revelations about the League of Shadows are unsatisfactory. The cliff-hanger is very interesting though and I'm eager to read the next issue. Also, more

This is a fantastic issue. While some writers seem to portray a caricature of what Kamala is, Willow Wilson delivers her in all her charm and earnest desire to do the right thing. This storyline has been a really great one...I almost forget all about "Civil War II" when I am reading it! And Takeshi Miyagawa kills it on art. This is one of those issues that makes me remember why this character was more

I did enjoy this issue, but the one thing I had a problem with was Bruno's attitude toward Kamala. I understand theres some bad blood between them, but she was just looking for some help. I hope they are able to make amends in the future.

Mac reviewed The Unworthy Thor #5 Mar 27, 2017
1.0

I wonder if Marvel is now trying to make its readers hate the old guard after the initial backlash from dethroning them, why else would you remove a fantastic artist from the final book in an arc? There were so many questions following Secret Wars. I read issue after issue hoping for some glimmer of something worthwhile, only to be let down at every turn. The reveal here is weak and makes no se more

Tie-ins are usually looked down upon by just being padding and taking focus away from the main story line. This comic could have just been a cheap tie-in to the Dark Reign event, but Reed and co. came up with this solid series that had me grinning from ear to ear. Even though I do wish the art style was consistent throughout the entire series, the story and characters kept me coming back for more. more
