Uber: Volume 5 – Kieron Gillen

Uber Volume Five

Uber works best when it surprises you rather than slavishly detailing the minutia of history. A bold step in an unexpected direction captures your interest as seen with Hitler and Churchill. This is another excellent volume for that very reason.

Plot that has been building comes to fruition and the excellent characterisation continues, albeit in small chunks. We also return to the Pacific front, possibly because Gillen doesn’t want to be accused of ignoring it rather than it adding anything at all to the story.

The art is superb as always and a black page with a single caption strikes terror, or at least trepidation, into the heart of every Uber fan.

Thumbs Up!
