The Last Defenders #5 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: The Last Defenders #5, about which I write the following sentences: "'The Last Defenders' hasn't maintained the quality of its opening issue, but it's shaping up to be a quality little series nonetheless. The first issue was a jokey, fun, subversive bit of Marvel madness, probably due to the contributions of Keith Giffen, who is no longer contributing to the story. Issue #5 is almost completely without gags and one-liners, but it still has an ironic core. 'The Last Defenders' doesn't take itself as seriously as most Marvel comics, and Joe Casey manages to have fun playing around with Marvel history, but it still deals with surprisingly earnest themes. 'The Last Defenders' is the story of Kyle Richmond and his place in the world."
