dark_noldor's 5 Ronin #5 - Chapter Five: The Way of the Fool review

All Ronins in one man´s hand

This was a fitting end for a most original and interesting series - the conclusion of the 5 Ronin lies in the hand of a fool, a man betrayed a long time ago by the Daimyo, that now seeks revenge like his other brothers Ronin - the idea of a circle, of the end of a quest is very strong in this series, that in every end there´s a new beginning and that for some there´ll never be peace again or a new road - it was interesting seeing the 5 characters reunited in this issue, proving that Deadpool (as important and popular as he can be) is only important for the kill and that´s it (sorry Pool´s fans) - even in his own title, he appears less than the other 4 Ronins and the Daimyo - but I´m only picking on the Pool´s fans, just kidding. I liked this initiative a lot, it was filled with great narrative, a story integrating all characters, good artists and fine dialogues, I only think that perhaps it would be better if instead of the Hulk they´d selected Elektra or Daredevi or even Ghost Rider. If you´re looking for something different from Marvel, still with our beloved heroes, check this out, it´s guarantee satisfaction.

So keep that in mind with this review.   I'd also like to state that I love Peter Milligan's writing, he's easily one of my favorite comic book writers behind Joe Kelly and in front of Rick Remender. He has yet to write a sto...

    Cover:   These all look great... a definite collectors items for those that like pretty consistent pretty things.  It is certainly a beauty if laid out on a table..  The Good:   What I will mention here in this section is what made the book both work and not work at the same time: in particular, the way the story's resolution was handled.  But before I explain that in greater detail, let me say this.  This series' characterization of the 5 individuals has been spot on, and we get to see an ev...
