Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #5 Review Short Version: Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #5 starts to put everything in motion to wrap up the comic. It’s another great issue, mixing humor and action, while leading up to the big confrontation for the next issue, which will bring Amelia – it seems – face-to-face with those whose power she is (unintentionally, not that she cares) undermining.

Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #5 Review
Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #5 is the penultimate issue of the series from Monkeybrain Comics that shows just because a series isn’t ‘edgy’ or ‘violent’ doesn’t mean that it can’t tell an interesting story. While Amelia previously believed there were only two worlds (a magic one and a science one), her knowledge of those two worlds allows her to serve as something of a go-between in the third world that contains both magic and science. However, despite sharing the same physical space, the magic citizens and non-magic citizens continue their The City and The City existence of pretending the other doesn’t exist, even if it is to their detriment. However, Amelia refuses to acknowledge such boundaries and the powers that be are tired of her undermining their power structure and are now firmly of the mind to eliminate her. It looks like we’re heading for the big finale next issue, and Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #5 pushes the dominos over and sends them tumbling towards that finale. The issue itself is a really fun read, balancing the humor that the series has done so well with a slightly darker tone as the bad guys gear up to try and get rid of Amelia. Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #5 is available from Comixology for $1.99.
