Dean Ambrose: the scrappy, wild-eyed, people's champion who never says die-and the Lunatic Fringe. While his ex-brothers are obsessing over the championship, Dean has taken crazy to an entirely new level by provoking the scariest man in the WWE-the beast incarnate, Brock Lesnar.

    Yet again, this is one I would pick up even if you arent a wrestling fan. Especially with a new arc starting up, you dont need to have watched the events unfold on TV and pay-per-view to enjoy this. Read Full Review

    WWE shifts gears a bit to focus on the Lunatic Fringe and an unlikely ally in Sasha Banks. I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    WWE #5 is quite possibly the best the series has produced so far. Kicking off a new story that sees The Lunatic Fringe, Dean Ambrose, take centre stage, the creative team give us a narrative that is both fun and full of heart. The sub-plot involving Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair also helps this stand out from the previous issues, with this latest arc looking a lot more extravagant. Read Full Review

    It's a delight to see Thibodeaux and Guillory's surreal time-travel adventure back in WWE #5, and though the Wyatt and Balor tales were certainly compelling as well, the brief New Day story will leave you hoping we get to stick with the fan-favorite trio for a few issues longer.

    A very enjoyable start to the story arc. I continue to be pleasantly surprised by how quickly I've fallen for this series. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Jun 9, 2017

    This issue is a series of random events, but by the end, it all does tie together quite nicely. Even if you have not read any of the previous issues you can pick them up and find a well told singular adventure. At times the dialog can get hooky and I do not see this appealing to anyone who is not watching or keeping up with the current product. For those that are it does pack in a lot of fun Easter Eggs to better the experience. Read Full Review
