    ROYAL CITY #5 is an example of what a great writer can do with original content in comic books. Jeff Lemire once again proves himself as one of the best writers in the industry with this installment of his series. His art is both quirky and weird but perfectly fits the haunting feeling that he is going for. ROYAL CITY continues to be one of the issues to look for at your local comic book store.

    Royal City will be going on a hiatus after this issue, and while this first arc isnt ending with a bang, Im still left satisfied and ready for more. For good or ill, Ive grown attached to these characters and this place, and I want to see them through this journey. I hope they find whatever it is theyre looking for. Read Full Review

    Royal City is great. I love reading it, and for that reason, I think this might be my last review for it. From here on out, I kind of just want to experience Lemire's story, art, and all that comes with it for myself. If it wasn't obvious, this is a book I recommend. At this point, I'd say go for the trade when it releases in September. And if you dig it, you only have a month to wait before issue #6. I'm not even going to bother to say you should read this if you've been keeping up with the series. Because by now, I'm sure you don't need me telling you that it's still very much worth reading.
