    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 12, 2022

    Darkhawk #5 ends the series with a final issue that's equal parts emotional and action-packed, completing the origin of Marvel's newest teenage hero. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Jan 12, 2022

    An awesome ending to a brilliant introductory series for this character. Higgins & Ramirez wrap up almost everything very nicely while leaving enough stuff unresolved for there to be plenty to address in upcoming stories. Read Full Review

    Darkhawk's conclusion is loaded with action, and while it does include some lovely character moments, the action and one heck of a final page hook is what leaves the biggest lasting impression. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 15, 2022

    The new Darkhawk isn't going to be heralded as the cool new character find of the year or anything along those lines. But his mini-series wraps up solidly, with enough care and interesting tidbits to not be completely worthless. I legit would be happy to see this character again. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 18, 2022

    This issue doesn't really stand out in any way, and the sequel hooks at the end don't really feel like something that I'm going to rush right out an demand more comics to resolve. It's all just okay. Read Full Review

    This miniseries had no right being as good as it was. I'm definitely invested in this new legacy Darkhawk, and I actually do want to see this followed up on.

    Here at the end, I still feel that this is a standard-issue teen superhero origin story lifted up past average by good characterization and committed creative work. I really liked the Connor-Shawn fight.

    The problem is, that above-average "business as usual" stuff is only about 60% of the issue. The rest of it is "wrap up the series" content, and it is woeful. The last-minute introduction of Sarah, the tease of the OG Darkhawk, and especially the supporting cast montage -- all anchors on the book.

    (Also, the next time Juanan Ramírez draws big cannons by tracing upside-down Star Wars blasters, he should remember not to include the pistol grips and triggers sticking out the top.)
