Are there any scholarly critiques of Edward Feser's work?

7

Have there been any critiques of Feser in academia, particularly philosophy of religion? I'd also like to see if there have been critiques of Aristotelian-Thomism which is what Feser's framework is for two of his arguments in his book, "Five Proofs for Existence of God."

Recently I know that Graham Oppy, has published a journal "On Stage One of Feser's Aristotelian Proof" which he critiques not only his Aristotelian proof, but his Neo-Platonic and Rationalist proof as well. However I was wondering if anyone else has taken a shot at him.
