    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Sep 30, 2021

    Garney and Crabtree have once again created a visually appealing issue that is both compelling and emotionally engaging. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 29, 2021

    BRZRKR #5 does a lot with a little. Imagining Unute as unlucky in love makes as much sense as anything, but Reeves and Kindt capture it in a quietly devastating way. Garneys expert pencils bring every bit of pain to life. BRZRKR #5 eschews the gore and violence of previous issues to quietly devastate the reader. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 29, 2021

    BRZRKR #5 is a solid entry in the series. Its focus is learning more about B but really focusing on the sadness he experiences. We as readers emphasize with him more and become attached in a way. It's surely so that whatever is to come will feel like more of an emotional punch but for an issue we get to forget about the action and instead focus on a person who just wants to find peace. It delivers something completely unexpected from an “action series” and helps makes this series continue to stand out. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Daniel Boyd Oct 5, 2021

    Although we are still yet to see the return of adrenaline pumping action seen in the debut issue of this series, this more introspective, slow-paced style works wonders for the character of Unute. This issue has somewhat redeemed this series for me and actually even has me once again looking forward to seeing where this story goes. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Oct 6, 2021

    BRZRKR is starting its new phase with issue #5 as it focuses now on the government's interest in the immortal god rather than on B's past. It's, yet again, a certain recommendation for any fans of Wolverine (specially from the Mark Millar run) as it tells a tragic story of an undying being who only wishes to rest with an amazingly talented creative team.

  • 6.0 - Nicole Drum Sep 29, 2021

    If last issue was a decision point between full steam ahead and fizzling, BRZRKR #5 takes us closer to fizzling. It's not bad, but it's not great, leaving an issue that feels like it needs a shot in the arm. Read Full Review
