Sensei is down. Deadman is heading toward Nanda Parbat. Can Ra's al Ghul be far behind? Secrets will be revealed and horrors tested, and the reader can search for Ra's al Ghul on the cover. He is there. The plot thickens.

    Its great to see Neal Adams revisit the characters he helped develop, but I feel his strength lies as an artist MUCH more than as a writer.

Despite his standing in the comic book industry, I genuinely wish DC Comics would insist on having a writer craft the story with him. Read Full Review

    While next issue promises a big reveal, it's been a little rocky along the way. Battle issues tend to be a bit of a snoozer and this one suffers from that. It reads like a delay before getting to the payoff in the finale next issue. Except for the insinuations about Deadman's soul, not much of real importance happens. Read Full Review

    Neal Adams' absurdist Deadman miniseries approaches its conclusion in Deadman #5, and one would assume that there are major plot developments in this penultimate issue with all the new concepts and characters that Adams has introduced. Nope! Read Full Review
