    As always, this issue is more than worth picking up for the art, but the story too is deepening. If you have been holding off on reading this series, this is the issue to start with. If you have been reading it already, this is the one you have been waiting for. We are very much crossing over into a new stage in this very creepy story. Read Full Review

    Long Lost issue 5 is a fantastic read with the creative team upping their game. This is well-crafted horror suspense thrill ride and a must read. If you're not reading this, I suggest pre-ordering the Long Lost trade paperback released June 27th. Read Full Review

    If the previous four issues of Long Lost established the creative pairing of writer Matthew Erman and artist Lisa Sterle as a tone-heavy combination, Long Lost #5 allows the former's skills at crafting dialogue while the latter puts on a showcase of how a conversation-heavy comic can still be visually interesting through slight changes to the flow of panels to be read to the character positioning and backgrounds within the panel.

    Shoutout to Erman for making me internally scream this issue and clutch my pearls because, at this point, I'm not entirely sure whom I'm more afraid of, the people who inhabit this town or the darkness that preys upon them. I always thought the latter, yet this issue makes clear that the ordinary folks aren't people you want to underestimate or truly trust at this point. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Lacey Apr 11, 2018

    Long Lost #5 is a must-have in the series, offering one reveal after the other. Ultimately it does, however, feel like a bridge between issues. Something big is coming, and #5 feels like a stepping stone towards it despite all its intrigue. Matthew Erman and Lisa Sterle have plenty more to reveal; issue #5 is just a taste. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 9, 2018

    Despite my issues with some of the story points, Long Lost still has my interest. I'm dying to know what's going on in Hazel Patch. This is a testament to Erman's foreboding writing and Sterle's artwork that balances the terrifying with the normal. I just hope some of these plot threads start to come together soon.
