    52 #5 was a great issue! It had all the ingredients of a good comic book. Good pacing, dialogue and weaved several interesting storylines and inserted a couple of hooks to get the reader to immediately want to read the next issue. In my opinion, 52 has been a big success. For me, 52 is delivering what was promised which is more than can be said for Infinite Crisis. I am enjoying 52 and I encourage anyone to give this title a try. It is worth the money.

    Final Thoughts: "It's coming! 52! 52!" For the most part, this was a great departure from the main storylines of DC's missing years. A great hospital drama is one of the few things comics lack, and this made up for that. The art may be a bit off, but for those looking for an exciting book with litle touches of a mystery, pick this up! Read Full Review
