The Resistance: Uprising #6
Explosive, unexpected and absolutely enthralling. The Resistance Uprising #6 is a tour de force of storytelling that wrapped up its current arc in the best way possible. The Resistance: Uprising #6 did more than just conclude what has been an excellent story, it also set up the future of this universe to be something very special.

With everything on the line, with all the buildup, The Resistance #6 had a lot of momentum leading up to this final issue, and it did not disappoint. Straczynski left no stone unturned and no thread left dangling to make sure this story was everything it could be.
As a whole, The Resistance has been a home run. This issue in particular was some of the best we’ve got from this series. There were panels of unrelenting action scenes, combined with moments of very palpable tension that really stood out. But, it was the jaw-dropping moments toward the end that will leave readers astonished.
“The Resistance: Uprising #6 did more than just conclude what has been an excellent story, it also set up the future of this universe to be something very special.”
C.P Smith’s art throughout this entire series has been tremendous. However, it really stood out in this issue. Certain shots, certain angles, whether it be close-ups or wide shots, really gave The Resistance: Uprising #6 a very cinematic feel. At points, it had me remembering back to those great action/political thrillers of the 90’s, blended with superhero movies of today. Simply put, Smith’s art matched Straczysnki’s storytelling in both tone and magnitude, which is why this team is one of the best.
From the outset, J. Michael Straczynski set out to create a new superhero universe that would be relatable to today’s world. Not only has he done just that, but he has created a world with limitless possibilities that will be entertaining readers for years to come.
