    But it isn't just the writing that's been consistently impressive over the run of this series. Weavers #5 once again demonstrates Dylan Burnett's fulsome artistic talents, as well as those of his colourist, Triona Farrell. As the conspiracy at the story's heart unravels, Burnett moves in ever closer to the characters, employing more expressive facial work than ever before in the series. His ability to blend the intimate with the explosive, accompanied by Farrell's eye-catching neon tones, continues to make this a comic as good to look at as it is to read. As we draw to the conclusion of Spurrier and Burnett's gripping horror-crime story, Weavers #5 demands that comics readers take notice of their achievements thus far. Read Full Review

    Sid's origin is finally revealed,and he appears more capable than ever in his role of gangster in Weavers #5. Yet, Sid still might not be as capable as he is coming across. It appears that there is an agent provocateur in the midst of the Weavers and Sid is more closely connected to this person then he was aware off. Artwise, Burnett does a good job, but the series' more serious tone sometimes feels out of place with his drawings. He does a great job with action and super powers, but his less than realistic style doesn't always feel well suited. Read Full Review
