...but how? Sabretooth has changed Krakoa but has Krakoa changed him? No one gets away clean in this story. And maybe there are fates even worse than the Pit.

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jul 11, 2022

    The first portion of this story has come to an end as Sabretooth begins the next part of his journey, and those that were placed in hell alongside him have to follow their own new path that is still tied to the man that plagued them. An emotional and thought-provoking conclusion to this series that has taken a deep dive into Krakoa but also the systems that we deal with on a daily basis and just life itself. Read Full Review

  • 9.0 - Chase Magnett Jul 6, 2022

    It's clear that Sabretooth was just the beginning of a much larger chapter in Krakoa's history and the entire X-line is bound to be made better for it. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 4, 2022

    Sabretooth continues to surprise as it pushes its plot forward in new and exciting ways. In just five issues this series has been a prison narrative, a heist-style escape, and now something entirely different. All the while it exhibits compelling ideas about the human condition.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 16, 2022

    Sabretooth #5 isn't as cerebral as some of the other issues, but it's still a fine comic. LaValle, Kirk, Beredo, and Petit have created an outstanding miniseries that set up the next chapter in Sabretooth and his fellow prisoners' lives expertly. It's not as great as the previous issues, but it's a fun read. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Jul 4, 2022

    Sabretooth #5's purpose is obviously to set up the next chapter for Sabretooth and the other exiles from the Pit, which certainly makes this issue feel out of place at times. Nevertheless, it still provides some entertainment even if filled with many more questions than answers. If anything, the ending will definitely have you excited for what comes next.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Jul 7, 2022

    The weakness is in its effort to set up the follow-up story. Its already been reported that Marvel has more plans for Sabretooth, and the building blocks for that story are evident throughout this issue. While LaValle doesnt linger on them too much, it does create a cliffhanger feel that leaves the final pages feeling underwhelming. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jul 6, 2022

    Bits and PiecesSabretooth #5 is a frustrating finale for a series with so much potential. The big action happens off-panel, the pieces of the escape we do see are dialog heavy and packed with unanswered hints about the future, and this all appears to be a setup for another series coming later. Such a waste. Read Full Review
