    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 8, 2020

    Fallen Angels is a book a lot of people are sleeping on, and that's a tragedy. This issue is a wonderful example of why it's so great. Read Full Review

    Fallen Angels #5 captures an exciting new vision of Psylocke, but fails to bring all of the intriguing narrative elements together in a cohesive and enjoyable way. Read Full Review

    FALLEN ANGELS #5 is a typical setup issue. A team is assembled. Training and preparations ensue. The final boss battle location is discovered. This is all well and good. However, the fact that 2/5 of the team are introduced here (and arent popular characters to begin with), and added to that the lack of a defined villain, make the arc feel like it is sputtering to its conclusion.

    There are a lot of problems with this issue, if I haven't made thatclear enough. In addition to all the above, there's not much to Apothat this point, a villain who had potential but has not been developed,and the dialogue feels as stilted as the previous issues. Butsomewhere, amidst the tiring trappings of this story, there's somethingreal that teases as if it might poke its head out in time for the finalenext issue. We can only hope. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 8, 2020

    In comparison to previous issues, this comic book is one of the strongest yet, but that isn't saying much. It sets up a showdown that you'll be dying for since so little actually occurs here. At this point, the very idea of confrontation that could mean something is worth more than the false poetic nature of Psylocke's vision. Basically put, this feels like it's getting closer to the end, which is a huge positive. At least we can get some respite knowing it's almost over. Read Full Review
