    Faith and the Future Force #5 is exactly they type of comic book I hope to grade! It showcases the strength of a crazy narrative with a simple premise that finds a unique way to bring itself to a finish. So by all means go grab this and the first three, you won't regret it! Read Full Review

    Faith and the Future Force #4 is a satisfying conclusion to the series. Chris Chriswell “defeating” the robot doesn't take away from previous attempts by Valiant's heroes to stop it. The logic used is consistent and reveals a lot about Chriswell's mentality. And it sets up Faith's next story arc in a wonderful way. It doesn't delve into the robot's backstory in terms of it becoming so invincible as much as I hoped. But thankfully it touched on it enough to successfully conclude this story arc. Read Full Review

    'Faith and the Future Force' uses a familiar story technique and turns it into a fun and enlightening adventure. Faith is clearly the star here and as always shines with determination, grit, and smarts. If nothing else it really demands further exploration of Faith with Neela and Ank as a team than what we get here. It may not be a total home run but a solid stand-up triple. In other words, 'Faith and the Future Force' is worth the ride despite its limitations as only a four-issue arc.  Read Full Review

    Ultimately the comic, and series as a whole, triumphs over the flaws in this issue – and while this could have easily been another arc within the ongoingFaithseries, you're not going to be lost if you've never touched the previous material asFaith And The Future Forcestands alone as an entertaining story with a meta message.

    I give this issue 4 out 5 stars. This is a fitting finale to a great series. It is high quality all around and a fun read. Faith fans will love this, especially if they know how it ties back to her previous series. However, I don't know if the marketing did this series any favors. We saw all the cover material with various Valiant heroes helping Faith and in reality, this was just a very good Faith story. As a fan of the character, that's not a bad thing. Read Full Review

    At the end of the day, I think that most people will argue that Faith is meant to be a fun book, and not something super heavy or profound. Taken on that level, I agree that this is a fun issue with snappy dialog. I guess that I somehow I stumbled into expecting that this story would go a bit deeper given the many sci-fi trappings and the epic storyline. It’s good fun in the tradition of Faith, but not necessarily a deep dive, and not essential reading from a Valiant continuity perspective. Read Full Review

    Kudos for knowing "when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em" (to quote country legend Kenny Rogers), because this really could not go on much longer. Read Full Review
