    X-23 #5 brings this story arc to a close, and I do have to say that when all is said and done that this had been a bold story to tell. While the focus on clones was uniquely taken from Laura, Gabby, and the Stepford Cuckoos, this at the same time changes the direction of the Stepford Cuckoos dramatically. They've always been characters who come and go to help under special circumstances, but where do they go from here? What kind of life will they live now that they have made such a poor decision? Only time will tell, but for now this story was engaging for what it was. Read Full Review

    Gabby is a bright spot and change of pace for the Wolverine lineage of characters. In the end, I'm glad that she's back in the fold, musing about clone dynamic and cracking jokes. Read Full Review

    Would definitely like to see more action in the next story. This was the best comic in this storyline that took forever to build up. The art was good and very vibrant, Cabal and Fiorito definitely did a good collab of both their styles. Read Full Review

    Lastly, one big thing the X-23 series has going for itself is these are very quick issues. If these were long reads with this little fighting, I'd probably more consideration into dropping this from my list. That being said, if Marvel changes the tune of X-23 starting in issue #6, I'm OK with that. So long as they make the right changes, of course. Read Full Review

    The new series closes out its opening storyline with little to no depth, but an enjoyable adventure nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Laura's conflict with the Stepford Cuckoos comes to an end in X-23 #5, and for all of the energy and excitement the story started with, the ultimate resolution is remarkably quick, tidy, and average. Read Full Review
