” Meet Dave, a slacker Zombie who wants to be left alone to play his favorite trading card game. But when a strange new card takes on a life of its own, Dave finds himself pulled into a fantasy world, where he is confronted by a mysterious simian wizard. While his friends try to find a way to get their zombie pal back, Dave discovers that surviving in this new card-based dimension isn’t all fun and games.

Artwork: 3.8 out of 5
What a fun feel/look to this comic. The art really captures the fun atmosphere that the story sets up. If there is one draw back, it’s that Zombie Dave looks like Shaggy from Scooby Doo. Other than that the character designs are solid and the colors shine. It’s a great looking book.

Story: 3.8 out of 5
So going into this I honestly figured a stoner zombie who gets high and munches on people. Boy was I wrong! Instead I got a strange mix of the paranormal and card games. This issue is really well written, funny and just entertaining from start to finish. It’s just a great fun story to check out.

Dying Breath: 3.8 out of 5
I highly enjoyed this issue. I mentioned above my only drawback on it. Sure it’s not a typical zombie book, and that’s a good thing. There was a good deal of smaller items touched on in this issue that I hope will be brought back up in future issues. If your looking for a step away from your typical serious horror books give this one a try. It’s just good old fashioned fun.
