    COMICON - Scott Redmond Dec 27, 2021

    'Eat The Rich' sticks the landing with its topical horror story centered around income/healthcare/etc inequality by giving the protagonist and allies as well as the audience a satisfying and in a way cathartic ending. Every bit of the ominous and moody feeling given by the story and artwork is kicked into high gear for this issue, giving us a story that is perfect for the times we live in. Read Full Review

    And that's it. The thrilling finale in what has been a thoroughly enjoyable series. Sarah Gailey has given us a fantastic storyline to sink our teeth into (pun intended). And it's been a great read from issue #1. I wondered after last month's issue how Gailey would bring it all together and I was not disappointed. The cannibalistic conclusion was gripping from start to finish. And maybe we might see another visit to Crestfall Bluffs in the future. I for one hope so! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 22, 2021

    Eat The Rich #5 nails the ending unless the reader is a cynic. Gailey has done a fabulous job with the horror throughout this book, and the ending has a nice hopeful tinge to it. It's up to the reader whether the conclusion works for them, but that doesn't mean it's not good. It's very well done. The art is phenomenal, so it looks amazing no matter how the reader feels about the ending. Eat The Rich has been a great book, and this ending works. Read Full Review

    This is not to say you, specifically, should not buy this book. You should; it's fun, it's engaging, its characters work well, and its overall arc totally fulfills the promise put forth. In the sentiments of that great philosopher Basil Exposition, just try to have fun and don't worry about the pesky details. Read Full Review

    Eat The Rich feels like something that was dragged from the past days of EC Comics, and it's tough to tell whether this would have benefited from a longer run, or a shorter series overall. Regardless, as a whole, the series is a fun romp that takes some interesting ideas and projects a bloody tale that you can't help but feel a little satisfied with. Read Full Review
