    Final Verdict: 8.5 – "Death Orb" #5 delights in ways you won't expect while maintaining its gut-punching high action and high level of craft up to the very end. Read Full Review

    There are a lot of things I enjoyed in Death Orb over the run but the final installment is one that left me feeling unsatisfied. Shark's presence and story just felt like it didn't add anything, everything involving Father and his plan felt unfinished and not fleshed out in a way that made it seem really important, and Rider's inability to get real closure here is problematic. There are a lot of characters moving about this issue but little of it really resonates. It's wonderfully illustrated, though, with some great layouts and a strong sense of action that hits very well. But that isn't enough to really salvage the story itself for me. Read Full Review

    The story feels rushed and the series could have benefited from one more issue to fill out its conclusion. Not a bad ending, but definitely a meh one. Read Full Review
