    Not really much else to say about this issue. I liked it. It was good. It had a good story, and it had good art. Certainly recommended. Read Full Review

    Stash My Comics - Leo Johnson Feb 25, 2014

    Jack is back for even more comic adventures. This is good news. With the first arc wrapped up, Zub and Suriano are jumping into smaller adventures in the next few issues. Fans of the show should already know how good this comic is and, if not, they're missing out. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 5, 2014

    Samurai Jack #5 offers fans the first real look at the evil that is Aku in the new comic series and a battle between the monster and our hero that leaves Samurai Jack near death. Mortally wounded, out hero has to use the chrono magic in the threads to save his life rather than return home meaning his never-ending quest against Aku will continue (for hopefully many, many more issues). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Andy Hamilton Mar 1, 2014

    The only real complaint that I have against this issue is that it tried to cram in just a little too much content. This is the conclusion of the first major story arc of the series, the end of a quest, the icing on the cake; it's a pretty big deal and a lot was on the line. While it was still a very good story and a good comic book overall, it felt rushed to the point that it almost had the quality of a highlight reel for a very important sporting event or thePreviously On…section of a television show. However, this is only a problem because as a reader and a fan, this universe and these characters have grown on me and I simply want to take the time to enjoy them to their maximum potential.

    Nerds On The Rocks - LenDiggity Feb 25, 2014

    Samurai Jack #5 is definitely worth picking up and reading, it doesn't have as impactful or poignant of an ending as I was hoping for but it's a fun ride with great art. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Feb 26, 2014

    Samurai Jack brings things full circle and tells a really fitting story for the fan-favorite character. Jack's story continues and Zub has set things up well for the next writer. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Feb 28, 2014

    Samurai Jack #5 is a rather disappointing outing with minor redeemable qualities. Sadly it does not come recommended. Read Full Review
