    Overall, DC VS. VAMPIRES #5 continues to show just how simple yet dynamically clever this story is. Due to its Elseworld nature, it's a book cluttered with everyone's favorite DC COMICS heroes and villains either being killed or turned into bloodsucking Vampires. What's not to like?

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 22, 2022

    There isn't a superhero showdown fight comic on shelves as good as DC vs. Vampires. It takes everything we love about these characters and drops them into the impossible scenario of having to go against your friends because they drink blood and serve a new evil purpose. Sucks to be Batman, but it's great fun to see him take on these godlike heroes. Read Full Review

    Schmidt delivers some beautiful art in the issue and the visuals are stunning. What makes them work really well is the stylistic differences between the different stories. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 23, 2022

    DC vs. Vampires #5 is another solid issue of a series that keeps surprising. The action is great. The paranoia keeps building and the end of this issue delivers a little sadness as well. But, overall, the comic is a hell of a lot of fun you can easily get lost in and want to see what's next. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Feb 23, 2022

    With the book moving closer to its halfway point, DC vs. Vampires remains one of the most consistent and pulpy books on the shelves. The issue makes an interesting artistic detour with Di Meo exploring the Suicide Squads reaction to the vampiric invasion. The alternating styles feel like two puzzle pieces that just barely lock in together, and itll be curious to see if they end up linking more in future issues. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 22, 2022

    It's never a great sign when a maxiseries starts making creative team changes midway through. Even if everyone involved is highly talented, it never bodes well for consistency. Otto Schmidt is joined this issue by Simone Di Meo, and while both artists are excellent, their style doesn't quite mesh. Read Full Review

    DC Vs. Vampires #5 is a down issue in a great series.  You'll have those now and again, but at least this sets up what should be a banger next issue.  Fight scenes dominate the issue, and unfortunately, the art makes a lot of what's going on hard to decipher.  This is still one of my favorite books coming out right now, but this issue was a bit disappointing.

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Feb 22, 2022

    DC Vs. Vampires #5 continues to boast some stunning artwork but threatens to fall into a convention that's plagued a majority of DC's titles. I hope that future issues will include more heroes, as the vampires now have an advantage in numbers, and the series is about to hit its halfway point. Read Full Review

    It's about time for Tynion and Rosenberg to give the vampires a major loss. They've been too ahead of the heroes and carving through them to the point the book is running the risk of getting boring. Given this premise that's the last emotion readers should be feeling. Read Full Review

    The lack of limits is still enjoyable, but the execution doesn't quite meet the promise in DC vs. Vampires #5. Read Full Review
