A slower turn of pace in this issue leads to a bit more character development. We dive more into what is going on now. More of a reading mans issue if you will. Overall a nice way to move the story forward.

Artwork: 4 out of 5
I don’t know how, at this point, to judge the art team on Crossed. Great art, same as always. Nice shading, coloring it all flows so nicely and just works with the Avatar theme.

Story: 3.5 out of 5
Even though it’s not a high intensity issue like the past have been I felt it had great character development. A nice pace to move the story forward but nothing great. Overall it worked but I prefer something to happen, even in the flashback scenes.

Dying Breath: 3.7 out of 5
The artwork is always solid. Ennis is a great writer. This issue just lacked what I come to expect and love from Crossed. I did like the progression and I know something is building so there are things to look forward to in #6. Overall though it was an alright issue.
