    Barrier #5 isnt bad, but its not as smart as issues prior. The focus on language and strained connections across cultures is copped out upon. The ending is far from satisfying. Liddy and Oscar are still great characters, but youre left wanting better for them. The art is the biggest saving grace here, and its why I can still give this book a recommendation, if a bit less enthusiastic than recommendations to prior installments. Feel free to check this one out, though. Read Full Review
