Rorschach tried to kill the leading contender to unseat President Redford, a governor by the name of Turley who has a lot to say. Turley believes the Redford people were behind the hit, but the detective investigating the case isn’t so sure. To prove Turley wrong, he has to figure out how Rorschach and Laura got so close to actually doing the job, and the answer to that might be deep in the Turley campaign itself, including the governor’s past with a masked man called the Comedian.

    Rorschach #5 is another flawless issue of this astounding series. If the rest of this miniseries is equal to what King's given us so far, then this will be another masterpiece on par with his stellar Mister Miracle. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 18, 2021

    Rorschach #5 takes a look at a "hero" and shows him for who he is, leaving readers to decide if he's good or bad and if he deserved what might have happened to him. It's really interesting that Laura targets the governor because of conspiracy theories, and Turley has his own about what happened, forming a strange parallel between the two of them. King says a lot in this book, and this is another little illustration of that- everyone has their little conspiracies, and in a crazy world, sometimes the crazy are the ones with the power. Fornes knocks it out of the park again with the art, making King's writing look all the better. Rorschach is a very interesting book, with layers upon layers. Read Full Review

    This story continues to be about cults in one way or another, but some cults are more subtle. No issue of this series has been anything like the one before it, but King and Fornes are spinning a fascinating tale that I suspect will come together brilliantly. Read Full Review

    Rorschach #5 is a great addition to the overall mystery of Rorschach. I am invested in our point of view character and I enjoy all the new clues to add to my string theory board. The words and art come together magnificently to cause me to dig deeper into this new yet familiar world. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 10, 2021

    After last issue's strong showing, things slide back down into the disconnected and grimdark again, but there's some pretty good art to help it all go down. Read Full Review

    You're not going to miss much of the story by skipping this one. Maybe as the series draws to a close this issue will feel more significant. For now, the investigation feels like it's stalling out and walking slowly in circles. Read Full Review
