    As the plot in Port of Earth continues to thicken with extraterrestrial anxieties and close-to-home conspiracies, Port of Earth cements itself as being one of the most thought-provoking comic book series currently in production; and here, in its fifth issue, it becomes obvious that there is more to this story than initially thought. A must-read. Read Full Review

    All in all, Port of Earth #5 is a great first issue to bring readers back into Kaplan's world after the nearly three-month hiatus. While it doesn't do anything drastic in terms of storytelling, it has some great action set pieces and doubles down on the more intimate character moments that helpbring the reader into Kaplan's Earth.

    This is a solid book, and while I am never particularly filled with anticipation at the prospect of reading it, when I do I am always pretty entertained. The storyline does hold my attention, and the art is well rendered. Again, I like a bit more vibrancy and bolder colors in my books, but overall the art is nothing to be sniffed at. On balance I'd say that this is a series that would be better read in trade form if you can wait. It is enjoyable though and if you buy it you are unlikely to be disappointed. Read Full Review

    'Port of Earth' remains exciting and unique but after one arc we could use more information and details. It's time to expand this universe by adding more context from different first-hand characters. The cable news debates are compelling but getting the perspective from aliens or other officials could open the series up further. Nonetheless, 'Port of Earth' is consistently engaging and surprising just in need of some more world building. Read Full Review

    Port of Earth isn't strong enough to stand out on story alone, so hampering the art with drab coloring really holds it back. Read Full Review
