    Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland #5 is an electrifying conclusion to the series that answers all remaining questions while delivering intense action that will leave you haunted by eels for some time. It goes without saying that it's a good thing when the build up to a climax is worth the wait, and this story is successful providing that engrossing feeling. And the artwork is once again indicative of all the enjoyable aspects of this series from the subtle creepiness to the large-scale action sequences, although I wish Sir Edward was more involved in the action. If you haven't picked upWitchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland yet I highly recommend this series. Just don't expect to walk away with a fondness for eels. Read Full Review

    I'm very sorry to see this minseries end. Witchfinder stories come along so rarely, and this one has been my favourite so far. This book is unique in the Mignolaverse. There really is nothing else like it. Kim Newman and Maura McHugh gave this series a very distinctive voice that felt both authentic and also very playful. They clearly had fun with the dialogue and I in turn had fun reading it. Sir Edward's world felt more British than it ever has before. I can't stop praising Tyler Crook. He made this book his own right from page one, and continued to impress and surprise all the way through. The flashbacks in the fog in issue 4 are still my favourite bits though. Just imagine what he and Dave Stewart could do with the foggy streets of London… Yes, I am very sorry this miniseries has ended indeed. I hope this team will return for more Witchfinder… and soon.

    A strong Edward Grey book for sure, but possibly not the best Mignola book. Mysteries of Unland is a scary and special beast that holds water in the world of Mignola and establishes itself as an important part of the lively, complex, rich and deep mythology even if its ending did come a little too quickly.
