    The Thanos Imperative has been a top tier comic its entire run, but this issue is unequivocally the best of series thus far. With some of the best writing in the comic book industry today and art that brings this action packed space opera to life, it is impossible for us not to implore everyone reading this to buy the book immediately.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 16, 2010

    This is easily the best issue of Thanos Imperative yet, which says a lot considering how awesome the series has been thus far. The great action, superb art, and utterly fantastic twist ending make this a comic that you absolutely have to read. On a lighter week, this one could've easily been the Book of the Week. Take that to heart and buy this comic as soon as you can. You won't regret it (and if you do, I'm not so sure we can be friends anymore). Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 17, 2010

    This is how an event should be. No hand holding or limping to the finish line. Just more of the epic cosmic storytelling that we've grown to know and expect from Abnett & Lanning. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Oct 18, 2010

    Thanos Imperative #5 was nothing short of fantastic. I very rarely give out 10's to a comic book story, but this issue completely deserves it. DnA are doing phenomenal work in Thanos Imperative as they show the industry not just how a big event story should be written but how a comic book should be written. This is pure fun from beginning to end. The team of DnA and Miguel Sepulveda go about 160 mph and never slow down. A comic does not get more fun than this. Read Full Review

    With the shocking-but-not-surprising final page cliffhanger, what happens next is anyone's guess. In this issue, DnA manage to deliver some payoff after months of build-up by centering on the characters that have driven the cosmic books for years. I've said it before, but it still stands: this is what an event comic should be. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Adam Chapman Oct 14, 2010

    With only one issue left, I'm really intrigued to see not only just how this series will end, but also what it will mean going forwards for the Marvel cosmic books, and what the status quo will be. As far as I recall, only an upcoming mini-series starring Groot and Rocket Raccoon has been announced, with no other books being mentioned, so we'll see what happens next for our favourite cosmic characters. I could be wrong on that, however, and if I am, please make sure to say so below in the comments section. Recommended! Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman Oct 13, 2010

    I'll admit it: I'm a sucker for superhero space opera. And this is ten-strong dose of the stuff. I suppose I shouldn't fault the book for being crowded - - it's meant to be a mega-crossover contained in a succinct mini-series. Marvel's space heroes have rarely ever had this kind overarching direction and that's exciting. I just it would be a touch neater. Read Full Review
