    This edition is the edition to have. Go back and purchase issues 1-4. But make sure you have issue 5. You'll be glad you added this to the collection! Again, note that the script continues to get deep and thought provoking, the art pushes the edges in story telling and the colors are as vivid as any comic produced. Image has a hit on its hands.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 11, 2021

    Davide Tinto delivers some beautiful art throughout the issue. There is great detail in both the characters and the backgrounds and there is a moment that is definitely adult in nature, but not exploitive. Read Full Review

    At the end of the issue, Orlando teases something I was hoping would be a possibility from early on in the series. That suggests he's not done providing surprises for a book that still seems capable of greatness with a tighter focus on the main plot and better development of its characters. Read Full Review

    A quieter chapter unfolds as the Crisis Command figures out its next move. They'll have to move fast as the fate of the world and the multiverse hangs in the balance. This series adds more compelling ideas to the often tired super hero genre. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 10, 2021

    The radiosapien villain and the TV writing AI application that are given brief encounter on the page in a single issue of Commanders in Crisis would be enough to fill a couple of issues of their own. Orlando and Tinto pound both of these encounters into an issue that also features an attempt at Watchmen-esque history, romantic interpersonal relations, and WAY too many other things to allow the reader to settle into the book. It's frustrating. The concepts that Orlando is exploring ARE interesting. Read Full Review
