    Project Fandom - Nina Perez Feb 27, 2016

    No movement on the missing family storyline - just that the Goblin King now knows Silk was interested in his records - but the episode was still full of great stuff. In addition to the scenes with the people in Cindy's personal life showing concern for her, we got a brief encounter with the mystery guy from the sewers. He seemed to be able to turn into a mere reflection of himself, causing the Goblin-infected Silk to run and punch right through him like water. When she takes off, he apologizes. Very interested in seeing where that leads. Of course, Black Cat and Silk going after the Goblin Nation should be excellent. Read Full Review

    Silk #5 is a rousing success that does exactly what a good monthly should. With enough loose strands, solid writing and expert art I'm more than willing to sing the praises of this title as you should take a chance and follow it in this all-new all-different era. Read Full Review

    The story is a bit light, but that plays into Veronica Fish's artistic strengths as Fish makes the most of her oversized panels. This was a wonderful, if brief, issue. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Feb 26, 2016

    The second half of this issue has beautiful action panels, as Black Cat kicks, whips, and knees her opponents into submission. Veronica Fish's art feels exciting and imaginative. You never know where Thompson will take Silknext, but you know it will be fun. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Tony Goodwyn Mar 2, 2016

    Light on substance but rife with action, Silk #5's script delves into Cindy's undercover story in a way we haven't yet seen. Good artwork by Veronica Fish helps Robbie Thompson craft an installment that somewhat improves on a story that's needed it recently. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 27, 2016

    Silk is still a fun comic, and the art is typically spectacular. But Thompson needs to get rid of the chaff so that Cindy Moon has room to breath and grow. Read Full Review
