In what may be their most atrocious act to date, the wretched Omega Men besiege the holy planet of Changralyn and take hostage its ruler, the wise and benevolent Space Pope Pontifix. Is there truly nothing sacred in the Vega System that these deadly outlaws cannot defile?

    It appears that I've turned around on the series, so thankfully the more passion filled readers made their voices heard so that this series will see a definitive conclusion. Trust me as I type this,I'll be reviewing The Omega Men until it's conclusion. After five issues I can recommend this to fans of hard core science fiction and readers who love the craft of comics. Praise be to Omega. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 9, 2015

    This series has been an utterly delight from the first panel as it's a book that makes you work for it. This installment gives us a look at the world of Changralyn and the kind of religious aspect that permeates this quadrant in general. It's easy to see why the Guardians have an agreement to stay out of here since there's a whole lot of fanatics as we've seen from several of the worlds so far. This issue really drives home that point in a big way and its focus on Broot is spot on and fantastic. I'm excited to see how these pieces all come together and what revelations, twists and turns are still ahead. King is crafting a fantastic story here that I'm already eager to read in full again and the work of Bagenda in this issue is just fantastic. The ability to make these people like Broot come alive like he does is just striking and wonderful. Read Full Review

    Comics don't often get a second chance this quickly; if you aren't reading "The Omega Men," now is a great time to fix that. Read this book; it's not just as good as you've been told, it's even better. King and Bagenda have created a series people will be talking about for years. I, for one, want it to make it to #13 and beyond -- and, after you start reading it, you will too. Read Full Review

    Tom King continues to impress with his highly underrated Omega Men. This series has been ambitious before, but now King takes aim at interstellar religion and the hypocrisy hidden under many churches Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 8, 2015

    Little by little, more light is shed on what makes these strange characters tick and the goodness that lurks beneath their sometimes questionable actions. There's also a nice sense of tension driving this issue as a threat looms ever closer for the team. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Oct 7, 2015

    The Omega Men #5 is a rock solid comic that continues to dig deeper into the tale of this very different set of characters. I can't wait to get my hands on #6, as this series has my full attention at this point. I highly recommend you snag back issues and join in for the ride, King and Bagenda are taking readers on a fun one. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 18, 2015

    I still love the Omega Men and am so glad that it survived the chopping block.  However, I really need to get some real information of where this story is going soon because I don't want to give up on it and I fear that decision is drawing near.  I have been faithful through all of the whispers and mysteries  and I think I deserve something for my effort.  While Barnaby Bagenda's art is great, Tom King needs to step up the story and do it soon or I'm afraid that the fan outcry will turn into something less positive.
