    Im greatly enjoying this comic; its not an entry level issue really, though, which is a shame as for the transition to digital I think that perhaps it would benefit from being more accessible but needs must. Still a great yarn that I look forward to continuing on through its new medium. Read Full Review

    Those who worried about Dark Horse Comics' future since the loss of the Star War franchise (me included), need not worry at all, if the quality of books like The Ladykiller and The Resurrectionists are anything to go by. Read Full Review

    Resurrectionists #5 is a relatively entertaining issue that suffers from not providing answers about the crux of the matter resulting in the events not feeling as engrossing as they should. The way Maya is unlocked is exciting, and the story progression in ancient Egypt reminds me of how this series started off, which is a good thing. But after seeing everyone else unlocked in similar manner with answers still lacking, it almost feels gimmicky since the greater context remains unclear. The overall premise is still fascinating but I really hope some things are tied together next issue to make the picture clearer. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 11, 2015

    While I like the series overall with what it's doing and the kind of layering to it, there's some structural presentation pieces that leaves me feeling very out of sorts with the book each month. Some are easier to dig into and clear up than others, particularly when it focuses on Tao/Way in either past or present, but when it focuses on the other characters it seems to play it as though the reader is aware of a good deal of it already or has just read all of the prior issues just before reading the latest one. Which can work great in trade form, but it makes the book a hard read when new installments come out and you wonder why you're still reading it. It's not bad in the sense that a re-read or two reveals more and more, but there just feels like there's a high barrier to entry with the book that's getting higher with each installment because of the way the cast is becoming more and more complicated.
