MacGyver: The Fugitive Gauntlet #5 is bittersweet. I’ve loved this series SO MUCH, that while I’m excited to see how everything concludes, I’m sorry to see this miniseries end.
For the past four issues Lee David Zlotoff and Tony Lee have written an absolute perfect comic book based on the television series with all the hallmarks and standards of the MacGyver television show, and this issue is no exception. Everything comes to a head this issue, and it’s a great wrap up to the series. There’s TONS of twists and turns and some classic MacGyver gadget-making and using household cleaning tools to do some amazing feats. It’s very well written and just when you think things are settled, we get another few pages of wrap up. A great ending to this series.
On the art front, Will Sliney doesn’t let up on the awesomeness. He REALLY knows how to draw action pages. There’s some great page layouts in this issue, and a fantastic last page that is a real high to end the book on artistically. I’ll miss you drawing MacGyver, Will, but I will see you in the pages of Fearless Defenders. Good work, my friend.
Thank you, Lee David Zlotoff! Thank you, Tony Lee! Thank you, Will Sliney! Thank you, Image Comics!! I never thought that I would get to read a MacGyver comic book, and not only did I get one, I got an OUTSTANDING one!!! Here’s hoping that we get more MacGyver in the future!!
