    It's a largely conversational issue, meaning Manapul doesn't have as many opportunities to flex. However, he still delivers an exceptionally crafted issue of teeth-grinding noir accented by burnt-out colors as everything Dunes had taken for granted falls apart around him. Bring on the conclusion, and soon, please. Read Full Review

    Clear #5 reaches its penultimate issue with excellent new ways of expanding its sci-fi world and the ingenious concept of skinning it with Veils. The series continues to be great sci-fi with smart ideas wrapped up in a mystery that has a deeper meaning I think we all can relate to. Now the question remains, is the truth something people will want to see, or will we choose to live our small lives hoping for no change at all? Read Full Review

    Clear has been an interesting ride overall even if it is one that I've struggled with at times. I'm eager to see how the final installment will go now that we've had such a significant reveal here with what's going on because it can make quite the impact overall. It's a solid read even while being just exposition for the most part with some mild action thrown in for some variety. Manapul's artwork is always great and even just doing this works out well because of the layouts and design to keep it flowing in a really good way to engage the reader and feel like things are happening as the tension rises.
