    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 25, 2022

    Silk has evolved quite a lot over her 36 total issues thus far. Each series has been built on the one before it thoughtfully, nuancedly by every creative team. There's a real sense of continuity for Cindy and her adventures. Robbie Thompson's run on the first few series got her up and running. Maurine Goo's approach for the last series was good. Still, Kim and Miyazawa have a kind of alchemical resonance that could serve Cindy well for the next few series of chance and circumstance allow them the opportunity. Read Full Review

    Another amazing volume of ‘Silk' comes to a satisfying but bittersweet conclusion that is high on character and emotion with just enough action to satisfy the needs of a superhero comic book.

    Silk #5 ends the arc the way it began with a light, airy ending that fits right in as an Afterschool Special or a Scooby Doo Mystery. The action is fine but safe, the linework is adequate, and the coloring is very good. If you want some light superhero fare for the kids, this is a solid title. If you want hard-hitting drama, look elsewhere. Read Full Review
