Clandestine #5 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Clandestine #5, about which I write the following sentences: "It's exactly what the three star rating was made for. It's slickly drawn, it has some interesting concepts, and it does some things well. But it also jumps too quickly and easily from one resolution to the next. When I say that it stumbles over itself, I'm not just talking about the plot. The overlapping panels, beautiful though they may be, visually represent the haste with which this issue unfolds. This story just doesn't have time to breathe, especially with the large Destine family (with over half a dozen members), the classic Claremont/Davis Excalibur team, and the Inhumans all thrown into the mix, along with ugly, evil clones of the Destines, plus a mind-controlling alien with a giant cranium and tiny little T-Rex arms."

Is the final issue of this mini-series worth reading?
