    I hope that this piece doesnt get brushed under the rug. I want to know how the world recovers. I want to see the ramifications of the big reveal on the last page. And whats going to happen to Tony, Sinister, and the rogue Eternals? They need to be held accountable. The point is: that Gillen has made an event thats hitting on all cylinders. From deep thoughts about life, religion, and origin to where the Marvel Universe will be heading after this event, Gillen continues to tie so much into one amazing story. You have to pick up A.X.E.: Judgment Day #5 and grab the back issues ASAP! Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Sep 21, 2022

    A.X.E.: Judgment Day #5 features awe-inspiring speeches combined with blockbuster-worthy artwork as Marvel's heroes make their last stand. With only one issue remaining, the final fate of the Marvel Universe hangs in the balance. And in my opinion, this is one of the few times where I've felt like the stakes are high enough for a story of this caliber. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Sep 21, 2022

    The movement being made feels unconnected from the main story, because the events are being told in the side minis, and tie-ins from the ongoings attached to the event. This, mixed with the character beats that just arent hitting like theyre supposed to makes this issue drag in parts. Hopefully Gillen pulls it together at the end. Id hate to see this story Ive been totally engrossed in for the last year and a half fall flat on its face. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Sep 21, 2022

    Final Thoughts:A.X.E.: Judgment Day #5 looks great, sounds big, and feels important. There are plenty of spectacles and human emotion to keep you riveted to the page with every turn. However, the actual plot has barely moved more than a few steps when you consider the heroes' new plan is the same as the old plan. Come for the heart and the visuals, but don't bother if you're looking for a plot that takes up more than a few pages. Read Full Review
