Oliver Harrison sounds more like a cursed man than the chosen one: psych wards, confrontations with the authorities, reality shifts, hexes, hallucinations, and bloody crime scenes. At least he has his lovely Elynor to come home to, right? ...RIGHT?! Join us as the next epic VANISH arc begins right here!

    VANISH #5 is the return of Ryan Stegman & Donny Cates' new age superhero fantasy, continuing the story that started in issue #1 more so than paving the way forward with a new arc. However, this issue is the best so far with a gripping pace and narrative that concludes sharply with a worthwhile cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    Vanish #5 kicks off its second story arc, though the art is more or less carrying a shaky script. The strongest part of this series is that it wore its '90s influences on its sleeve, making sure its story had just as much oomph as its art. I hope that tradition continues in future issues, because not everything about the '90s needs to be replicated. Read Full Review
