    This issue picks up the pace and really injects a sense of urgency into the story. The artwork has no little patches of rushed art or ineffective coloring that has occurred (albeit only briefly) in parts of the last two issues. This is the best issue since the first installment and puts this book back on top of the Image Comics pile for me.  Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Aug 7, 2018

    The Dead Hand has not strayed from its original intent and intensity. As we get closer to the final showdown where it all could end in apocalypse, it may be a teenager that gets through to the terror with the mind of a ten year old. Read Full Review

    The Dead Hand #5 provides an intriguing backstory for Mountainview while ramping up the tension on the Ellis and Vil front. Its another damn good issue from Kyle Higgins, Stephen Mooney, and Jordie Bellaire and well worth a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    I absolutely love this art team here. They've been doing a great job in this series to convey the tone this story needed and the splash page in this issue is probably my favorite among the series. All I can say is that if a Metal Gear comic was to ever be made now, this is the team for it. The chain reaction of events that has been building to cause an implosion or even an explosion if things go really bad have been some exciting things to read here. Kyle Higgins is a newer writer for me to read from and this series shows he certainly has some great range in his storytelling. Read Full Review

    An explanatory issue to be sure, but one that ramps things up for a killer 6th issue. Read Full Review
