Review: The Variants #5 (2022)

Writer: Gail Simone
Artist: Phil Noto
Letterer: VC’s Cory Petit
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Released: December 7, 2022

Gail Simone’s famous series comes to a conclusion in The Variants #5. I’ll admit, I’m sad to see it go. This series was phenomenal. Not only did it take risks (and have fun doing so), but it hit as hard as Jessica Jones. I don’t think I need to explain how hard that is!

Anytime we have alternate dimensions and variants, there’s the chance that the plot will get super out there. And while Variants danced that line, it did so with a strong sense of cohesion. That held the story together. Okay, that and my love of Jessica Jones. Sue me.

I think this is the ending the series deserved, though again, I’m devastated to see it go. With any luck, this won’t be the last adventure of this kind. After all, the groundwork has been laid.
