Champions (2020-) #5 by Eve Ewing
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Originally envisioned as the final issue of a five issue limited series, this issue draws the first arc of this Champions series to a close. It neatly wraps up the Kamala’s Law/C.R.A.D.L.E. plotline, exposing that Roxxon are behind it all in a bid to use people’s fear to both make money and also take out a major thorn in their side. It’s perhaps a little too neat of a wrap up and it feels slightly rushed, but overall it’s very satisfying, and I’m glad that the whole “the Champions are public enemy No 1 and on the run” thing isn’t being dragged out too long.
I’m excited to see where they go from here, especially with the new creative team of Danny Lore (whose work I’m not familiar with) and Luciano Vecchio (who I worked with on Pete Rogers’ outstanding The Interactives graphic novel from Markosia).
