    Civil War #5 fulfills in the greatest sense, most of our expectations as a worthy "What If?" scenario of the previous mega-event hit. True to form, everything comes with a price, one way or another. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Sean Bartley Oct 16, 2015

    What made the original CIVIL WAR so fascinating was that there was no puppet master behind the scenes manipulating the heroes against each other; we got to see everything, from the inciting incident to the mistakes made on both sides to the crushing finale and the aftermath. CIVIL WAR 2015 feels like everything the original CIVIL WAR tried to avoid being, and feels like a kind of fan-fiction continuation of that series. I commend Charles Soule and Lenil Yu for trying, and they absolutely gave it their best shot, but it just misses the mark and never reaches the heights of the original series. That said, I'm a sucker for anything CIVIL WAR, so bring on CIVIL WAR 2! Read Full Review

    Civil War #5 is a solid conclusion to this miniseries. Leinil Yu's art is as beautiful as ever and Charles Soule builds some great character moments, though the book's ending is quite abrupt. Read Full Review

    Writer Charles Soule's disinterest continues to become more and more apparent in each passing issue, as he continues to fail expanding on crucial plot points " plot points such as why the Skrulls are instigating the war in the first place; how Hawkeye/Venom, Wolverine/Hulk became fused together; how two major characters died in an explosion, yet everyone else seemed to escape just fine. They all seem to be ignored here. Something tells me if the series expanded out to about 8 or 9 issues we would've had a lot more attention to detail, but alas that isn't the case. Issue #5 feels like Soule taking the metophorical dog behind the shed to put him down. Wish it wasn't so, but it's true. Read Full Review
