    There is a nice story here but I think Duggan lost his way when he expanded the scope. Trying to find where this takes place with the connected monthly series will lead to a headache. The story will give you plenty to look forward too. The art tells the story nicely and makes the Soul World look terrifying. I think it was an improvement over the last issue. The flaws in this issue just prove that bigger is not always better. Read Full Review

    There's a perfect combination of humor and action, as the story continues to center around the Guardians of the Galaxy with just enough additional pages to move other characters into place. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Jul 18, 2018

    Infinity Countdown #5 doesn't really do all that much to actually set up what's coming in Infinity Wars Prime. What we do get is Doctor Strange beginning to assemble all the infinity stone wielders to sort out the inevitable impending threat. For the record, it's awesome that Stilt-Man has an infinity stone.

    Infinity Countdown #5 concludes this mini with a nothing ending leaving things open for Infinity Wars. However, it left me excited and even a little engaged, so things will hopefully continue to improve from here. I guess well see. In any case, feel free to check this one out. It earns a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Jul 22, 2018

    Infinity Countdown #5 ends on a bit of a let down with very few developments coming this issue with it serving as more of a recap, of who has what at this point in time, not doing much to make it worth the dollar value it calls for price wise. I'm still excited to see what Infinity Wars the series is like but this issue didn't do much to help build anticipation other than looking decent as a whole. Read Full Review

    This closing let a strange feeling. It's not a bad book. But much thing wasn't very logic. Strange ask for the Mind stone but deny the time one, and then gather all stone bearers. Why not send the message with Natacha close to him. I didn't like what happen to Pym. And I didn't like much the fight between Gamora & Warlock too.

    Cover - The connecting variant. Not un link for this one, but a little for the five part story. 1.5/2
    Writing - I find it very strange. Each piece are in play. I will wait for Infinity wars. 2/3
    Arts - I like the art, it's not perfect but do the work. And Deodato rule like always 2.5/3
    Feeling - Mixed. 1/2

    Duggan ties up his GOTG loose ends as he sets up the Infinity Wars with Kuder doing his usual great vibrant art. It was awesome seeing his GOTG art one last time except for his kang interpretation which just looked off. But the best part here is the Soul Stone World where Gamora and Hank Pym interact and Dr. Strange trying to re-form an Infinity Watch. Hawthorne delivered beautiful art that fit the intimate tone of his scenes. Jordie Bellaire's colors were outstanding. Duggan manages to get better at the end and has me looking forward to what's next.

    I've absolutely loved every single issue of this miniseries/countdown to the main event/call-it-whatever-you-want. This issue was another great instalment, especially the scenes with Hank Pym. I really hope the main event will be as good as this was.

    This saga has been a fun if uneven read. At times it gets very confusing trying to keep track of all the Infinity stones, and the Guardians of the Galaxy don’t get to do much.
    The need to keep a light hearted tone since the launching of the new Guardians has been a hindrance to dramatic development and it continues to be. It’s hard to build much drama when everyone is supposed to be cute and fun.
    I’m not sure what we are supposed to make of the Hank Pym storyline.
    Still this is solid fun, but far from brilliant.

    I wasnt satisfied with this ending. I would say this book isnt a conclusion to the Infinity Countdown series, but it is rather a PRIME issue for the upcoming Infinity Wars PRIME #1. So it is basically a PRIME book to a PRIME book.

    Unlike other Infinity Countdown issues, this issue had no cool and mindblowing moments (atleast in my opinion).

    There were also inconsistencies in the art. Like the first half of the book, the art in which i believe is drawn by Mike Hawthorne was not great. I didnt like it. The othet half of the book's art in which i believe is drawn by Aaron Kuder was above average and i liked it. Gerry Duggan did not write the script of this issue as good as the first few issues of this series and i hope he more

    The Guardians splinter under the strain of the Infinity Stones and a reunion with Warlock. Meanwhile, Dr. Strange takes the lead on the Earth side of the story and sad #@%& happens to Hank Pym in Soul World. Gamora's characterization is strong and heartbreaking; so is Hank's misfortune. The overall plot is a hot mess, though. Too many of the complex storylines weaving through this issue dead-end in "why's this happening and why's it important?" questions, and this event has already burned WAY TOO MANY pages to remain so opaque. The glimmers of good character work and the slightly above-average art do not do nearly enough to offset this issue's giant potential for frustration.

    The armor-forging prologue scenes throughout the Count more
