This is it!  All your questions will be answered, all the mysteries revealed!  What has obliterated humanity?  What the hell happened to the moon?  What is the true nature of the Lost Valley?  Why do the heroes you know and love-Turok, Magnus and Doctor Spektor-seem like completely different people?  And perhaps most importantly, how will the world be saved, and at what cost?

Also: Doc Spektor, Part 6! The story of the all-new master (and we use the term lightly) sorcerer continues... when Doc gets drunk & summons a demon - and good decision-making ensues!

    The excitement and satisfaction I felt for Sovereigns #5 was like the first time I flipped open a page of ‘Masks' from Dynamite. The things you can do when you bring these heroes together is astounding. They don't exist or fight in the same way our modern superheroes do and that is something to appreciate. Read Full Review

    The Sovereigns #5 is what every event conclusion strives to be! It alters the fabric of an entire line of books while giving birth to a powerful narrative. If you haven't been reading along now's the time to go grab those back issues and get lost in a well realized yarn. Read Full Review

    The main Sovereign series ends on a very good note itself though as it delivered a very fun story, introduced some creative incarnations of the characters that we've seen before, and set up for the alterations and new incarnations. It still doesn't feel like Dynamite has a handle on how they want to handle their Gold Key books as we've had several interpretations over the last few years but this was definitely a very fun one and I'm enjoying the other books that have been spun out so far and am hoping for more of that, and more Sovereigns. Definitely looking forward to re-reading this in full. Read Full Review

    Ultimately I’m a bit disappointed by this issue as a resolution to the series. I feel there are significant ideas that they set up that were not really paid off, as well as some fundamental questions about the premise and plot. I do appreciate when writers go for an ambitious story, and perhaps there was just not enough room to tell the full story while also launching the solo series. I do think it’s somewhat unfortunate that this series wasn’t allowed to stand more on its own, especially since I’m not fully sold on the Turok and Spektor series. This story showed real promise and offered a tantalizing glimpse at these characters, but unfortunately I don't think they fully stuck the landing. Read Full Review

    Wow, mind blown! That's some Dynamite world building. Now it all makes sense. I'm looking forward to reading these updated gold key titles. Revamped for 2017.
