As Protectors of the Portal City of Pan, Amadeus Cho and the Agents of Atlas have bonded with each other and the gloriously diverse citizens and sojourners they've defended. But when they discover the crime at the heart of Pan's creation, can they continue to protect -- or has the time come to shatter this beautiful dream? And, of course, WHO'S KISSING WHOM? (Because there will be kissing!) Our first epic tale comes to a close with a tidal wave of ramifications for the Marvel Universe - and the hearts of our heroes.

    Agents of Atlas #5 achieves a difficult task. It manages to be self-contained enough with the Portal City threads, while also clearly paving the way for yet another story with the Agents of Atlas. This cast continues to grow in popularity, and it's for a good reason: it's a fantastic series with a fantastic creative team that's doing cool and engaging things with the medium. I am definitely hyped for the next saga, which is really all you can hope from a comic honestly. Read Full Review

    Once Shang-Chi and Crescent confront Jimmy, things pick up a bit. It turns out that both Jimmy and Mike have dragons in their headquarters and it becomes a guessing game of what to do and who to trust.  We then find out the ramifications of bringing down the beasts and learn a pretty good teason why Nguyen is bringing people to Pan.  At this point, however, there is only a couple pages left and i was wondering how all this would be wrapped up.  The answer is it isn't.  Nope!  This mini just leads into another #1 and that kinda stinks!

    This miniseries has no ending. It just leads into the next miniseries. I don't really want to read more, but I guess now I have no choice. This miniseries, like the War of the Realms tie-in before it, is bloated with too many characters, and not the best story.

    Greg Pak can dialogue me to death. So. Many. Words. On that note, Pak did write a fantastic moral dilemma that Amadeus has to face this issue, and it was actually masterly written. Unfortunately, that’s probably the only highlight of this issue, besides some great art. I loved the last page twist because I love Namor, but yeah that’s about it. I’m not coming back for the sequel

    It took ages of pages and a mountain of words to get here, but dang, here is awfully nice. I've become a convert to the art, too, which again shows off complete mastery of minimalism.
