    The Silver Coin is a sobering, horrific read and by far one of the best comic series I’ve ever read. I’m ecstatic to see there’s more tales of the Coin coming from authors like Ram V, Vita Ayala, Joshua Williamson, and Matthew Rosenberg. Let us know in the comments which issue has been your favorite thus far! Read Full Review

    Learning the origin of the silver coin and what motivates the hunger and devastation that follows any who have the misfortune to come across its path was amazing. There are questions left about the coin but I look forward to seeing if the books to come will hold more information. Overall The Silver Coin #5 is a recommendation easily given and is a series I am anxious to have the trade of. Read Full Review

    Walsh and Fullerton do amazing work with the art throughout this issue. There are so many spooky and eye-catching moments to be found and the dark progression of the story is bolstered by the pitch perfect mood and tone of the art. Read Full Review

    It's an excellent end note for now and one that promises so much more, as the sins of the past only inspire new terrors across the centuries. Read Full Review

    Overall this was a satisfying issue as well as wrapping up the five-issue anthology. It seems that the coin is still hungry and we have a whole host of new talent contributing to the next few issues. The simple yet effective story by Walsh puts a spin on the cursed coin with its birth as not some larger plot but a simple act of anger against a friend who betrayed. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 10, 2021

    The Silver Coin #5 is a good example of moody horror that sneaks up and captures your interest. The story may involve a witch during a time when they were hanged and use themes familiar to us, but it still finds the unease and horror in the simpler lives of yore. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 11, 2021

    The Silver Coin has gained quite an audience in the past several months. What had been planned as a five-issue anthology mini-series has been opened up into an open-ended engagement on the comics rack. There is great potential in the life of a single cursed coin that could be taken in all kinds of different directions by a host of different authors. There have been several writers announced for the next several issues. If success continues, it would be fascinating to see some really big-name horror writers pick up the coin and take it for a spin somewhere in the hazy march of time. Anything could happen to a cursed coin, given the right momentum. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 17, 2021

    This issue feels like an avalanche, starting slow, then burying us all in overwhelming horror, with some well-drawn body horror that I don't want to talk about. Read Full Review
