Roy Harper finds himself forced to do things on his own. He’s been through a lot since he was Green Arrow’s sidekick, and usually, the only person he can count on is himself. Hence, he’s hiding the fact that he’s back from the dead from his old friends. He comes across Jade, who has also been stranded by herself-can he help her while letting her help him? Because neither of them can handle Darkseid all by their lonesome. Meanwhile, Barry Allen sends out a call: it’s time for all the heroes exploring the Infinite Frontier to come to the Omega Planet!

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee Sep 1, 2021

    Infinite Frontier #5 delivers on action and ramps up the danger to the multiverse considerably by the end of this highly enjoyable issue. One for old-school DC Comics' fans that's for sure, but plenty for any comic book fan to enjoy too. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 31, 2021

    Infinite Frontier shows how to a massive small scale event book with significant repercussions throughout the DC Universe without tying up every other title. This has been a very fun ride and it keeps building well from one issue to the next. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Aug 31, 2021

    Infinite Frontier #5 gathers all of its major players and a few new faces from the Multiverse, leading to a final showdown on Earth-Omega. With only one more issue to go, the first major event of the Infinite Frontier era is looking to end on a high note. It is also cementing Williamson as DC's newest go-to writer after Scott Snyder and Brian Michael Bendis. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Aug 31, 2021

    The epic feeling is back. Williamson furnishes answers, intrigue, and a unique storyline that feels significant. The cast of characters front and center in this week's INFINITE FRONTIER #5 provides a refreshing touch that DC COMICS has been missing for quite some time. Sure, some of the explanations seem a bit forced BUT we finally get legitimate reasons that kind of make sense (kind of). So far, INFINITE FRONTIER continues to keep my attention while providing that classic foundation that literally built the company and drew me to comics in the first place. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 31, 2021

    Infinite Frontier continues to be one of the best books coming out from DC Comics right now.  Joshua Williamson gives us some explanations, action scenes, and character moments that had me wondering which side I would pick if I were involved.  The art wasn't as good as it's been, but this is still a hell of a ride that every DC fan should be reading!

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 1, 2021

    Each of the artists brings some great visual flair to the issue. There is a lot going on in every panel, but the art is laid out in a way that feel inclusive rather the intrusive. An enjoyable range of images throughout. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Aug 31, 2021

    Infinite Frontier #5 moves the needle forward on what the post-Death Metal DCU looks like, and it's rife with meta-commentary that has, at this point, become as much a part of DC's history as has its heroes. There's a slight feel of repetition at this point to DC's conveyor belt of crises, but it's obvious that this series has an intentionality and deliberateness to it that proves DC isn't just spinning its wheels. What does its future look like? Infinite. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Sep 1, 2021

    Joshua Williamson did the best job he could I feel but there isn't a lot that makes this a classic story. I feel that this will just end up having very little impact on the DC Comics line as a whole. Read Full Review
