    Civil War II Choosing Sides#5 features a funny and insightful Alpha Flight story, a subpar Misty Knight/Colleen Wing battle royale, and an enthralling spy thriller with virtuoso storytelling from Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire. It's definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review

    As a trained comics fan I responded in a very Pavlovian way to this issue. Cover with Justin Trudeau in a maple leaf tank top & boxing gloves? I'll buy it to see what's going on with that! What I really liked was that it was not (a) just a cover that had no interior support and (b) not a nominal walk-on for a couple of panels. Zdarsky has his story feature Trudeau in a key role who gets more story focus than the nominal featured heroes of the tale, Alpha Flight. The other 2 stories were mostly forgettable for me, but such is the nature of anthology books. Nothing I got here made me want to get more issues of this series, but the Trudeau story by itself made me feel like I got my money's worth out of the purchase, delivering what was advertised on the cover when it could very easily taken the easy road and not lived up to the promise of the cover.

    Don't waste your cash on this miniseries. It has been acomplete shit show for a long time and this issue isn't going to fix it at all,but it is nice that the Nick Fury story is finally going somewhere. I guess wewill have to see if the final issue can save this series. My bet? It won't be. Read Full Review
