Artwork: 3.0 out of 5
This issue combines 3 really unique looking stories. I won’t out right say that the artwork jumps off the pages, but I will admit that they do a great job of depicting the stories. I really enjoyed the look that each artist gave to the zombies. Each one was different and that is what I want to see in an anthology.
Story: 3.5 out of 5
I don’t care what the mainstream fan has to say, I love me some zombie stories. Each story here was really fun to read. The first story, “With a Whimper”, had what I like to call the classic horror twist of irony. That always makes me smile and laugh. “Kindergarten Zombies” was really cool just on it’s topic alone, but also delivered my favorite story of the three. “The Rest of the Story” was a typical no one wins zombie story. All are done very well, and make for a nice collection.
Dying Breath: 3.5 out of 5
Zombies damn it! You know you love them, especially if your a collector of horror comics. This anthology isn’t the best looking issue but delivers on the stories. Nothing but fun to be had here, from some new voices that should be heard. Check this book out, you know if you don’t it will be on your BRAIN!!!
