Review: The Troop #5

TheTroop_05_Cover_aThe Troop prepare for their first mission as a team; they even have snazzy uniforms and everything. But can superpowers in the hands of a few reckless kids stand up to the controlled rage of Chalice?

With The Troop #5, this series doesn’t seem slow down much as, the mysterious group that is killing kids with powers is finally confronted. Things go sort of according to plan, as tensions between the twin the sisters cause some internal conflict.  Which makes things interesting as Edward is confronted by an old friend. Except this friend is more than aware of the gifted children and that Edward is collecting them, despite the prophecy.

They finally get costumes. Like most similar mutant based comic books, the costumes are made to work with their specific powers. However unlike say The X-men for example, the Troops costumes are unique to each individual, which is a nice change of pace.  It portrays a sense of individuality despite being part of a team. As for the rest of the artwork, it is solid. Fluid, as the action and fight begins, ending before it gets out hand as the villains pull a radical move in attempt to destroy the Troop.
