    Overall this comic delivers an insane amount of pleasure, especially considering it is 32 luxurious pages for only $2.99. Truly great slice-of-life comics are far too rare in monthlies, but this is one of the best. Read Full Review

    This was another tour de force by Ryan Kelly with a very capable slice of life story by Brian Wood. Read Full Review

    Wood continues his saga of freshman drama, but misses the mark on one of the plot threads he carries throughout this issue. Ren's narrative here is a bit disappointing and unexpected. I should say, it's very expected, which for Wood is surprising. Though Ren's story in this issue leaves something to be desired, new cast member Olive finally gets a chance to shine as Wood gives us some insight into her character. Remarkably, Wood is able to introduce Olive's family history and current predicament in only a few brief, well plotted scenes. It'll be interesting to see if The New York Five will be able to reach a satisfying climax for all of its characters in only one more issue. Read Full Review
