    While Brilliant Trash doesn't claw its way back for me with this issue compared to the last couple, it does work better overall as it's feeling more focused and clear about what it is it wants to do. I liked what we had of Zhen in the past issues as her story worked but this one doesn't deal with her yet works better when it comes to Kennedy at the least. Cromwell's still kind of problematic as the foundations of the series that are somewhat superficial but there's an element of fun and some strong forward progress being made here that's capped off with an intriguing moment that has me wanting to see how it plays out.

    Brilliant Trash #5 is an interesting comic. Your mileage on the ending will likely vary, but I dont feel that it sticks the landing with its people are naturally good given how brutal and nihilistic the story has been thus far. It feels like its stretching for a meaning it cant quite justify. I can recommend it to those who like the series, as it will doubtless stick with you for a time afterwards regardless of whether the ending satisfies you. Feel free to check it out. Read Full Review
