    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Apr 24, 2013

    I don't know about you, but this cliffhanger has me absolutely baffled. Sure, the conclusion felt rather abrupt, but at the same rate, it just makes me even more curious to see how it'll all unfold with Darryl. No matter how it turns out, Robinson has more than proved I should have confidence in how he'll wrap up this competition.Unfortunately, time isn't exactly on Robinson's side with this one. I'm slightly concerned he's bit off more than he can chew because there's only two issues left and there's still a lot of really cool things to explore (Principal O's need for revenge, the nurse, Tyler's back story, etc). I'm optimistic for the most part, but at the same rate, there is some worry that intriguing aspects can potentially be squished into a much shorter segment. Regardless, I continue to love this series and I'm thrilled to see this chapter continues to deliver the goods. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Apr 24, 2013

    Five Weapons is one of the most colorful and fun new comics out there. With two issues left, it will be interesting to see how Robinson wraps up the story threads dangling about right now. Five Weapons is well worth picking up 4.5/5 Read Full Review

    A very small-scale sort of story, but one with its own set of charms. More suited for kids, but adults will find things to enjoy as well. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Nuts - Jef Mendoza Apr 26, 2013

    Tyler Shainline does quick and somewhat dirty work of Rick the Stick in their all out brawl. Shainline continues to refuse using a weapon to defeat his opponents and tries to outsmart and also out plan them. He's a regularly Kaiser Souze, thinking ahead. He's an symbol to us lazy folks. In this issue, he befriends Joon the Loon and dates/crushes on Jade the Blade. There's your inevitable high school festival in which all gooses are cooked. Tyler challenges both the Exotic and Archery Weapons Clubs at the same time. What is he nuts? No, he just crazy. Lastly, there's a lot of mystery going on with the faculty and some steamy animosity between the Nurse and Principle O. Let's get it on! Only two more issues. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Zach Wilkerson Apr 25, 2013

    As the story progresses, “Five Weapons” is starting to hit a few snags. The repetitive story beats and odd pacing take away some of the magic of previous issues, but a solid cast, and intriguing mystery, and beautiful art still make this one worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Danielle Luaulu Apr 30, 2013

    Making a series that is not only creatively refreshing but also one that is illustrated by the writer himself is no mean feat. Robinson's series is a fun take on what could be a formulaic story. Developing a number of strong female leads, this book is a good addition to a series that appeals to readers of both genders. While I question his using a few stereotypes with some of the teachers, it's forgivable given his normal line of work. Pick this up if you've been following the series so far. Overall, Five Weapons earns 3.5 stars out of five. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 24, 2013

    I’m going to stick with this title because frankly it’s almost done so why not. Am I 90% sure of how it’s going to end? Yes, but I hope that there will be something redeeming along the way that will make it worthwhile. I’m not looking forward to the beginning of the next issue since it will have the resolution to this issue making it the same as two and three, but I’m hopeful the rest will add something to the plot as the series winds down. While I can’t stop reading this series I continue to find that I dislike all of the characters and that’s unfortunate since they’re the driving force behind the entire story. Read Full Review

    This issue felt and read exactly like the other two. The story hits exactly the same beats every time and it predictably ends in the middle of a challenge. How will Tyler win? Do I care anymore? No i do not. I wish that things would happen differently and that the series didn't feel predictable and boring, but it does.
