Liam wakes up in a world where he's not plagued by cosmic anxiety and visions of the dead, but rather one where he's a beloved husband, a doting father-to-be, and a celebrated costumed superhero! Everything is fine! (No, everything is not fine.)

    Collapser is at its best when the unexpected and different are utilized. Way and Simon need get away from the elements with which the reader is familiar. The world around Liam is calling to be explored, Baron Throe and Mr. Edgar (the black hole) are first and foremost. As long as Liam is stuck on Earth, he will most likely be stuck in the cliches, perhaps next issue will release him" Read Full Review

    Mikey Way and Shaun Simon do a hell of a job writing this book and making the story a quality one. The art by Ilias Kyriazis is pretty amazing, too. I am sad that this is ending as it has been a pretty great ride thus far. It is books like this that make me happy that the Young Animal imprint is still happening. Read Full Review

    It's a mad world, and a crazy world, but at the end of the day this is Liam's world. Collapser #5 was enlightening for the way it opened us up to the dreams which Liam wish could be his reality, and it was also terrifying for everything these dreams were masking. The big thing was once more being shown that this is a story where you expect the unexpected when so much of this issue hits you with twists and turns you couldn't have braced for. Read Full Review

    The end result is largely poignant and gorgeously rendered, with a genuinely great Superman homage thrown in. Read Full Review

    The addition of a major new villain with one issue to go seems to promise a chaotic finale, but it's a puzzle to me how this book can be wrapped up in only twenty-something pages. Read Full Review
