    DC Comics News - Seth Singleton Apr 13, 2021

    Geoff Shaw's art continues to amaze. The lines cross worlds to capture features, faces, and moments with patient detail. Dee Cunniffe's colors are balanced and beautiful. John J. Hill's letters match the emotion of the narrator and every character's words. So many moments in Crossover #5 are brought to life by the brilliant talents of a team working in synchronicity. Great sports teams thrive on the power of a championship to unite players. The power of this story joins five legendary creators into an unstoppable force. Read Full Review

    Bottom line, Crossover doesn't fit in because it too busy standing out. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - James Caudill Mar 31, 2021

    This issue has set up the readers for the finale of this current volume. Crossover will be continuing and there is an issue that will be dropping soon featuring none other than another great comic book writer in Chip Zdarsky. Hold on tight everyone this series is just getting started. If you haven’t read the first four issues, pick those up before you read this. You’ll need the previous stories to explain everything. You can always trade wait, but I’m sure you can get those floppies as well. Get this book and enjoy the ride. I totally wish I could give you more details about this issue but I think that if I give you anymore, I'll spoil the issue. I certainly don't want to do that. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Apr 3, 2021

    Hill's work shines as well in this issue with a lot of explosions, screams and ominous voices from God of Blades. The letters are essential in this chapter to help bring forth the chaos that has just erupted in the story and help immerse the reader into the comic by overlapping some of the sound effects.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Apr 1, 2021

    Crossover #5 feels a bit convenient at times, but that's alright. The only disappointing thing about the comic is that the fast pace makes it go by too quickly. However, the ending is pretty perfect. Cates hypes readers up for the next issue expertly. Shaw's art is the icing on the cake as usual. Crossover is such a great book, and while this issue isn't the best so far, it's a fitting penultimate issue of this story arc. Read Full Review

    Just as the series starts to slow down a little much in its fifth issue, Cates and Shaw ramp up the excitement and keep everything engaging. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 31, 2021

    With some fun pop-culture references and a big action sequence, Crossover #5 is a fun comic to read. It stumbles in that it could use a bit more of a setup. Steps feel like they've been missed and we go from 0 to 10 in no time at all. I thought I missed an issue when I first began to read the comic. Still, it delivers action, drama, and ups the stakes of it all. Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone Mar 30, 2021

    While I found this issue to be slightly lacking in story it completely makes up for it with the artwork. We do push things slightly forward while being left with many unanswered questions yet setting things up nicely for the final issue of the Kids Love Chains story. Read Full Review
