Review: ‘Clone’ #5

clone1top

Ultraviolence is always a eye-catching way to start a chapter. Secret government projects are always fun too. It’s hard to miss when you throw in guns ablazing, father-son time on a macro scale, ultimatums, and truths into the spotlight in Clone #5.

WRITTEN BY: David Schulner
ART BY: Juan Jose Ryp
PUBLISHER: Skybound / Image Comics
PRICE: $2.99
RELEASE: 27 March 2013

Bullets and brothers are flying all over this issue. Juan Jose Ryp excels at gory wounds and gun fights here. The action kicks into another gear as we rejoin Luke and his ever growing family tree. When your mysterious dad sends a chopper to bring you in to meet the family, you get on board.

Family drama is another big part of the many storylines going on in this book. The back room dealings of politics allows for a totally different story to push along the other side of this clone saga. It all comes to a head that makes this medium so addicting.

What happens next?

It all feels like the second last episode of a good season of TV. Things are set up for a strong finale. I’ve been impressed by Schulner and Ryp’s super-crazy “family” book. Now it’s all about the ending. It can make or break a story. No pressure, clones. But make it a good one, please.

    Seems more and more difficult for these books to deliver the denouement (see Batman Family, Death of as a recent example) and lets hope that they can close this with a bang.

        Loved everything aboot it up until the end. Dont know what went on behind the scenes with respect to any kind of discussion or debate on how it should end, but it seemed a total waste of my time to be hooked for that long and for it to end like that.
