    I've been on this book since the first issue and it hasn't managed to lose my interest yet. Issue 5 is the beginning of new chapter of Briar's overall story arc, so new settings and situations are being established. That can sometimes make for slow pacing, but the dialogue between Briar's friends feels real and authentic. What really surprised me this issue was the well times jokes. I found so many moments to be hilarious, all while not losing the serious tone in the background of this story. This a story that absolutely grabs you and keeps you in the moment, while still building something larger in the background. I love it and I can't wait to see what happens to this merry band of misfits going forward! Read Full Review
