    Bloodline: Daughter of Blade comes to a thrilling close in issue #5, and the future of the character looks brighter than ever. Bloodline: Daughter of Blade #5 is delightfully a full family affair, and while Brielle is amazing, writer Danny Lore has quickly developed an equally engaging supporting cast, so having them in the mix makes all the difference in the world. It’s lovely to see Brielle helping her father retain control as opposed to the other way around, which feels like a full circle moment with how things began at the start of the series. This moment and the entire issue pops with style and color courtesy of artist Karen S. Darboe, colorist Cris Peter, and letterer Joe Sabino, and while the Deacon fight did feel a bit too brief, the fight itself still shines and showcases its lead. Brielle has all the makings of a major player in the Marvel universe, and the sooner she’s back in the mix the better.

    The series draws to a close. It’s been fun. Lore and company have done a good job of telling an interesting story. It makes a pretty good case for further adventures with Brielle. Brielle DOES come across as the type of character who could carry her own ongoing series. She hasn’t quite been dropped into the heart of the bewildering mess that is the totality of the Marvel Universe, so there are a lot of different directions she could be taken in if the right creative team decided to sponsor her.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Bloodline: Daughter of Blade #5 sinks its claws into your heart and doesn’t let go until the final page. Fueled by devotion to family and responsibility for others, readers depart enamored by Brielle and thirsting for more pint-sized dhampir adventures.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Bloodline: Daughter of Blade #5 ends as well as it could for a Buffy the Vampire Slayer knockoff with awkward character work, truly awful dialog, and YA-grade art that doesn’t fit the characters or situation. The plot threads are wrapped up neatly with a happy ending, but the quality of this mini-series never managed to achieve minimum Marvel standards.
