Artwork: 3.8 out of 5
Wow, this is a nice collection of artists. Each has a unique style that really plays well with the stories of impending doom. I have to say that some of them really had a disturbing touch, while others were more on the realistic side. They all stand out in their own rights. Each artist really did a great job on the consistency of his or her work, as it all reads perfectly to the eye.

Story: 4.0 out of 5
You know it’s the psychological horror that gets me every time. I cannot stand to think of what might happen on 2012, if anything, and here I have 20 stories of possible scenarios. This was head trip for me, that is for sure. The stories are broken down into sections, which is a nice touch to break down the mixed themes. I was kinda happy to get to the humor section. Of all the stories the one I have to point out as my favorite, probably because I am a Cubs fan, is Hollow Victory. What an awesome ending.

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
This is a great collection of original stories by some amazing writers and artists. The styles are all so different and yet I am still so freaked out after reading each and every one. You know I say give me some monsters and I will tell you how funny they are, but if you make me think about the world ending, you got me scared. This is an excellent antology that is just  fun and hopefully not going to come true, otherwise I am burying my head in the sand.
