    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
