    This is a good comic that despite its flaws is being produced for all the right reasons. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Nov 14, 2016

    The conclusion of Lucas Stand could well top off what has been an exciting, dark, grim but thought provoking, adult series which really deserves to be adapted into a TV series. It's as uncompromising and pulpy as you might expect from Kurt Sutter and all the better for it. Another strong issue with the promise of a grand finish to come. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Oct 25, 2016

    The penultimate issue delivers, with raised stakes and an enticing new wrinkle. The setting and story work well and it's nice to see Lucas finally in control, but there's a weak twist and muddy art that drags things down a bit. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Kylee Sills Nov 2, 2016

    The cliffhanger of the issue does bring readers to a slightly unexpected place, perhaps as the consequences of Stand's rash actions, and will no doubt serve up some kind of closure, though maybe not the most uplifting of sorts. With art that transcends panels and makes the best use of hellish imagery, I've no doubt that Lucas Stand will end on a memorable note and may even read better in trade format when the series completes.

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Jim Taylor Oct 28, 2016

    With just one issue to go in the series, it's hard not to feel like Sutter and Kittredge have squandered an intriguing premise and some good early character work. The last page of Lucas Stand #5 hints at a finale that may deliver on some of the series' more fantastical elements, but it might just come as too little too late. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Robert Larson Oct 31, 2016

    And now, in one issue, we'll see Gadrel's master plan and then watch as Lucas presumably foils it and saves his immortal soul (though I'd kind of enjoy an ending where he fails; at least it would be in keeping with this series' out-of-left-field modus operandi). It just feels really rushed, perhaps a consequence of the Boom! mini-series format, but still ultimately owed to poor pacing decisions. Read Full Review
