    While this issue does put out a lot of information, Power Up! #5 avoids being an exposition dump. Cummings art is on point as usual, outdoing himself on the character design of these intergalactic warriors, and Leth makes you feel like youve known them forever, despite only being introduced this issue. What it may lack in action scenes, it makes up for in great tandem work to give great character moments and the backstory everyone has been waiting for. Well, most of it. Theres still one issue left, you know Read Full Review

    There's only one issue left of Power Up, and this penultimate chapter does a good job of making readers lament that approaching end. Read Full Review

    Power Up #5 takes a break from its ongoing plot to introduce an entire new cast of characters as Kate Leth and Matt Cummings expand the world of their story. If this kind of story had been told an issue or two earlier, it might have worked, but this is the penultimate issue of the series, and Power Up #6 has a lot of ground to cover if its ending is going to be satisfactory. Also, Nox's friends don't have much depth to the characters, which is partially the result of having half an issue to introduce them versus four issues for the Power Up crew. A couple of reveals and Matt Cummings' delightfully cartoonish and beautifully epic art aside, Power Up #5 is another bump in the road for this once promising series. Read Full Review
