    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Aug 8, 2022

    Immortal X-Men #5 is an example of the perfect way to do a crossover issue. Gillen ties it into Judgment Day but does it in a way where this still feels like Immortal X-Men, focusing on one of the books more interesting characters. Bandini and Curiel have worked together much better on this issue than last. All in all, another fine issue. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Aug 9, 2022

    Even with a war event looming large, ‘Immortal X-Men' stays true to itself as a series with another powerful character study issue that showcases one of the best ways to approach doing an event tie-in issue. Gorgeous and wonderful, the artwork has the same but different energy from the last issue as it takes on the feeling of the spotlight character in the best ways possible. Read Full Review

    The setup for the event's future issues is downright tantalizing, and at this point, I don't know if I'm more hyped to readImmortal X-Men#6 or the next chapter in Judgment Day's saga. Gillen knows exactly what he wants to do with these characters and it makesImmortal X-Men such a fun ride every month. Bandini's pencils bring the issue to life, perfectly encapsulating the themes and feelings Gillen's words convey. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Aug 3, 2022

    Immortal X-Men #5 explores faith and what one is willing to do in the name of it through Exodus eyes, as Judgement Day rages on. So far, between this series and X-Men Red, Marvel has been knocking it out of the park with Judgement Day tie-ins. Lets hope that continues with future issues. Read Full Review

    The issue is probably the most interesting character work Exodus has received in his 30-year history, but this issue needed a stronger emotional underpinning for the ecclesiological thought experiment to land with a stronger impact. Read Full Review
