Sheltered #5 Review

by @mikebiyad on Nov 21, 2013

We haven't seen the apocalypse yet, but at least we get to see the first possible threat for the teenage survivors!

The Good

Sheltered has turned out to be another great series published by Image Comics. We follow a group of survivors who killed their parents so they could survive the end times, which apparently are supposed to be happening any day now according to Lucas, the groups crazy cult-like leader. Lucas is still trying to kill Hailey and Victoria, and frames them for killing Chris and his dogs, although of course it was actually Lucas. The story is definitely progressing at a good pace, and for the first time it seems as the were left off with the group actually having a bit of threat to their life style at their camp. This book paved a great road to what's next to come.

The art in this book is pretty cool! Johnnie Christmas definitely is able to show the fear and sadness in everyone's face. The art gives off a very serious tone, and lets the reader immerse him/herself into the world of Sheltered.

The Not So Good

So far it seems like sometimes there's just a bit too much drama and not much happening. For a group of teenage kids living on their own awaiting the apocalypse, I think we need a bit more action and a bit less drama overall. Hopefully all of this is leading up to something big, because this book definitely has great potential.

The Bottom Line

Sheltered #5 is definitely a great addition to this unique story being told. This is definitely a great series to hop onto, and with the cliff hanger at the end, I can only hope to see something big happen in Sheltered's next issue. I'm giving it a 4.2/5. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

4.2 / 5
