    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler Feb 13, 2019

    Murder Falcon #5 is a wild ride and an unveiling of so much more that Daniel Warren Johnson seems to have up his sleeve. It's absolutely exciting to watch this story unfold and as long it continues to be this good, it will remain one of my favorite current series. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 13, 2019

    Visually, everything was intense and detailed. There are some amazing panels in this issue and both the human story and the intense action are given the same level of beautiful detail. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Feb 12, 2019

    The charming redemption story of Jake and the Murder Falcon continues as the forces of evil have become stronger than ever, but there is really no doubt that the shred will prevail. There is something here that is so ridiculously joyful that is should not be missed. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Travis Tucker Apr 11, 2019

    The story is developing like a very well thought out fantasy biopic comic about (insert band here) and I'm hyped to see this reach its climax. Not many issues left in this. Put this in your pull list ASAP. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Feb 12, 2019

    As heart breaking as it is bombastic, Murder Falcon runs you through the full range of emotions like the very best Heavy Metal album. The Art manages to keep up with the concepts and each issue just leaves you wanting more. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Feb 14, 2019

    Even though the story in Murder Falcon #5 didn't have as big of an emotional impact as I felt it should, the series as a whole continues to be good. Seeing Jake continue to deal with his past and try to become better continues to be an interesting story point. Having Johnson draw all these crazy monsters and characters is a high point for the series. I thought Murder Falcon might get a little old after a few issues, but somehow Johnson keeps introducing new things that make it fun and interesting, and I can't wait to see what he does in this next issue.

    Awesome issue. When they were at the cemetery, the statue above the grave, that was Chuck Schuldiner, right? Please, tell me it was. 99 percent sure... I just want it to be confirmed.

    I'm mixed about this one. We start on a battle with another metal band but with no clue about where or when this happen (How wait, thank to you I learn it's in iceland). But I really like all the part about Jake & his ex.

    Cover - I take the variant, not related but very nice. 1/2
    Writing - I think their is a lot that the writer could have tell us about what the rest of the band search, or what with the other band. But I also love all the work about Jake & his ex relationship. 2.5/3
    Arts - Still not perfect, but very good even if I kind of wonder if the artist didn't have to take a pose. 2.5/3
    Feeling - A wonderfull ongoing but maybe they have to do a pose with another artist and the storyy of the other band. And I more
