It's man-made Kaiju vs. real-deal Kaiju vs. Ultraman - on a shifting battlefield of ice and fire, with thousands of lives at stake!

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 1, 1970

    The Trials of Ultraman #5 concludes the second act of Marvel's Ultraman saga, tackling the concept of truth and delivering massive fight scenes worth the cover price. With the final page setting up another story, I hope these creators continue to flesh out their Ultraman saga for as long as they want. Read Full Review

    Trials of Ultraman has all the knock-down, drag-out fighting you can want from the kaiju buster and ties together all its dramatic story beats into a nice bow (a bow tied to the present of an impending Volume 3 naturally). Read Full Review

    Ultraman and the USP save the day in Iceland, but it's tough to enjoy the win when the conspiracy theorists who just witnessed a kaiju battle first-hand continue to deny the reality of kaiju. Shin works through some heavy family drama. And it all ends with a grim twist. This issue's content is pretty dark stuff, but I think that actually works in the comic's favor. Some realistic consequences and relationship challenges are just the thing to keep the kaiju-fightin' from getting too goofy.
