“With his dying breath, El Angel Exterminador thrusts his legacy upon his hopeless son, Angel. Angel decides he is not really cut for the job of being the new Angel but fate puts him in front of a horde of zombies that might just make him change his mind. The appearance of Abronsius, Zombie Hunter, will help Angel to make his final decision.

What a fun and strange mix for a zombie comic. This book is both hilarious and highly entertaining. Kinda of what you might expect out of a good 80’s style B-Movie.

Artwork: 3.8 out of 5
I really loved the look of the main characters and zombies here. Just an amazing job on them. My only drawback was some over shading in some panels. I would estimate maybe 5% of the them were kinda jumbled, but you get a great looking issue. The artwork also plays well with the not so serious tone of the story. It works, plain and simple.

Story: 3.8 out of 5
The story is very funny. Kind of a Lucha Libre meets Return of the Living Dead. For only 28 pages it seems like a much longer read. The story did have moments where it seemed to drift a bit off track, but in whole I highly enjoyed where it went. I just love comics that can carry a story well and make me laugh.

Dying Breath: 3.8 out of 5
This is a fun zombie comic. It has a good plotline running and throws some good jokes into the mix to not make it stale. The artwork is very cool and consistant throughout. Like I mentioned, it’s a  good B-Movie storyline that works and has room to grow. I know I will be looking forward to issue #2.
