    Marauders continues to showcase why it's the best X-book around in #5, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Read Full Review

    Marauders #5 is a winner. It has moments of great character evolution for Emma and Kate, Christian Frost and Bobby have some delightful moments, and even Storm gets a moment to show why she's always badass. If Duggan can distribute these moments more evenly to his incredible roster, Marauders would be nothing short of perfection. Read Full Review

    Going right for the jugular this issue. Full on offensive on all fronts, with some signposting of future planning and I couldnt be happier. Read Full Review

    "A Time to Sow" sets up plenty still to come " there's a real question of Shaw's loyalty, and it wouldn't surprise me at all to see him working with Homines Verendi to hurt his rivals in Kate and Emma. And the final page has a big reveal of two villains with a definite theme to them and a sense of utter ridiculousness that fits the book. The deeper we get into this series, the more fun and exciting it seems to become. I haven't enjoyed reading a single X-Book as much as this one in a long time, and it looks like there's still plenty of fun to come. Read Full Review

    After a slow start, readers will be delighted with the high-paced conclusion that offers a truly inspired plan to take down the mutants. In my opinion, this issue, along with X-MEN #4 will leave readers with a great deal to think about pertaining to our current society, its rules, and its validity. As far as X-books go, Duggan continues to make this series a must-buy for X-Men fans easily placing this book in the top 3 on the shelves today. Pick this issue up and add this series to your pull list if youre an X-fan. It may not be the best jumping-on point for a new reader. However, we are only 5 issues into the series. So, talk to your LCS and get those back issues fast! You wont be disappointed. Read Full Review

    A pretty disjointed issue rushes through too much story too quickly, but everything holds together well enough. Read Full Review

    Overall, Marauders #5 spreads itself a bit too thin as it tries to balance action with politics, but finds strength in the small moments it gives between the series' leads. Read Full Review
