    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Feb 20, 2019

    Exorsisters #5 successfully ups the ante of the series, while also reminding us of everything that these two sisters have to lose. This series has always had fun with its concept, never taking itself too seriously. But it also isn't afraid to remind us that these girls do in fact have feelings, and have been through hell (literally) and back. Read Full Review

    This part of the story is a little better than the last one even if I find it less good than the first issue. I trusted that their mother want a revenge, but their it's pretty clear I was wrong about that. So I find it a little weird. Like for the angel still in play after last issue.

    Cover - I take the wonderfull variant cover, not related to the story. 1/2
    Writing - It was not bad, We learn more about cate & Kate. Still not fond of the bad guys. 2/3
    Arts - The art is good, but not perfect. Their even strange panel. 2.5/3
    Feeling - I would have prefered a mission in each book. I'm not fond of this First Shadow. I'm out next issue. 0/2
