    It has long been said that power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. In The Sacrificers #5, it is even worse. A corrupt tyrant is still mortal and is vulnerable to the passage of time. In this world, absolute power creates corrupt immortals. Read Full Review

    THE SACRIFICERS #5 delivers a knockout punch of an issue when the Princess learns the secret of the Foremans elixir. Remender builds momentum throughout the fast-paced issue with an unforgettable ending, and Fiumaras art is fantastic. Read Full Review

    The Sacrificers #5 merits some credit for surprising readers as the death and misery visited upon its characters this month is certainly unexpected. However, it's difficult to say whether there's much beyond the shock of seeing what unfolds on the page. Read Full Review

    Holy Shit! This issue really flips the script and runs along at a breakneck pace, which is something I think was needed as the last issue felt like we were dipping into hum drum territory. I believe Fiumara lives in Argentina but I hope to meet him at an American con someday cause this dude is AMAZING!!!

    A masterclass of characterization, art and plot development.

    The art and colors by Max Fiumara and Dave McCaig is mind blowing. Thrres a brief action sequence here that rivals some of the best you'll see from any comic in its readability.

    The writing is engaging and intense. This book legitimately surprises me at least 3 times in the issue, my well read mind making assumptions and predictions of where the story will go, that are proven dead wrong upon the page turn. Classic.

    If you aren't reading this series, you should be. A comic in the classic form... this feels like this generations Sandman, a whole new method of fresh characters that could, given the chance, become iconic. Be here to witness it.

    I don't uaually give issues this high a rating, but when a writer completely shocks me where I don't see a plot beat coming, then that impresses me. I thought the princess was going to be the hero of the story and team up with the pigeon kid. Which obviously isn't going to happen now. Also the exlixir-maker being one of the pigeon species was a surprise. I have no idea where this is going now and that makes me excited for the next issue.

    As we go deeper into the story and move further away from the initial mystery of the first few issues, it’s creeping into shock-porn territory where Rick Remender needs to keep one-upping himself in the “OMG” moments to prove this is a cruel and unforgiving world. I’m not sure what point Remender is trying to make that hasn’t already been implied throughout the previous four issues. It makes me sad, because I loved issues #1-3 and thought they were a true masterpiece in storytelling. Now it just feels like we’re getting beat over the head.
