    Wow. I was disappointed in the final issue of the 2099 Secret Wars tie-in, but this was a great run that finished strong. Read Full Review

    Inhumans: Attilan Rising #5 is a solid issue with some great twists and some moments that hit like emotional sledgehammers. Soule gets these characters, I love his interpretations, and John Timms is a damn good artist. This has been a great series and a solid compliment to the main Secret Wars series. Read Full Review

    Inhumans: Attilan Rising #5 may be a bummer of a finale, but that doesn't make it any less entertaining. As the Inhumans are poised to finally take their place among the A-list of the Marvel Universe, Charles Soule, John Timms, Robert Poggi, and Frank D'Armata give us the Black Mirror version of an Inhumans story and largely, it works. While other Secret Wars stories are having fun with their respective characters and storylines, Inhumans: Attilan Rising showed us kings and queens can and will fall in the face of an malevolent god.

    "Inhumans: Attilan Rising" #5 manages to drop a meaningful twist in a series that, by its nature, doesn't have Marvel Universe-wide meaning on its own. Soule and Timms show that it's possible to get investment and shock out of a tie-in series that must inevitably end. With more time and less meandering in the first three issues, this could have been truly excellent. Read Full Review

    As far as tie-end endings go this one is certainly passable, with some great art and a killer whoopsie moment, but as an Inhuman book that looks to say and be something new, Soule and Timms seem to take their cue from the Inhuman's newly minted and muted leader. Read Full Review

    All in all, ATTILAN RISING #5 brings this series to a disappointing close. I'm sad to see that the book wasn't half so important as it was marketed. Read Full Review

    Whatever comes next for Marvel's Inhumans, I hope it's an improvement upon Attilan Rising. From newly transforming Inhumans around the world to scandal in the royal court and Medusa continuing to strike out into the world as a new kind of Inhuman leader, there's so many potential directions for great Inhuman stories " Marvel just needs to get started. Wherever they go, just pray it's not the same result as last time. Read Full Review
