OGDU FRAIZE’s plan is almost complete, he has reverse engineered every item of power across the Marvel Universe’s timestream to create the PSYCHOPOMP machine, a device that will steal the creation energy of the nascent GALACTUS and the SENTIENCE of the UNIVERSE at the moment of the BIG BANG.

    The tone of this series is a lot less serious than other comics and took a lot less time to get going. Even if you are only a casual fan of these characters I would recommend this issue and the series as it is so fun to follow through and entire story from start to end.

    Clobberin’ Time #5 brings the wildly weird time-traveling adventure to a close with big action set pieces, an uptick in humor, and a mostly satisfying conclusion.

    With the Psychopomp’s plans laid out and his final opposition assembled, there are few surprises to be found in Clobberin’ Time #5 as it plays out its thread. That makes for an enjoyable reading experience with familiar humor and an abundance of style evidenced in earlier issues. Yet at this point the reason to continue reading is Steve Skroce’s depictions of The Thing and his gnarly confrontation with a nigh-omnipotent being. Doctor Doom’s redacted face and Tuvah Tu’s battle scars are a distraction from another excruciating rock/skin-peeling endeavor, although it’s the sort of action that begins to feel played out after the prior four issues. As it stands, Clobberin’ Time #5 wraps up its own plot neatly and provides a fine showcase for Ben Grimm as an icon of superhero comics and unforgettable character in dialogue and spirit, but it also makes clear that there’s not much left to be mined from this particular version of The Thing.
