Artwork: 3.5 out of 5
Another great looking issue of Vegetable Wars has been bestowed upon me. To me the back story really shined here though, while the main story seemed to lack the great look of the previous issues. That is not to say it was bad, I just didn’t think it lived up to the first two. The coloring didn’t give the characters as much depth as it had before. The back up story though is dark and twisted and just consumes my eyes with a sense of visual delight. Great work.

Story: 4.5 out of 5
I am seriously starting to think that Caton may be the best kept secret in world of comic writers. This story has so much depth and is way to compelling. I see no hope on the horizon as we keep getting drug further down into the dismal abyss  that comes with having vegetable masters. This issue like the last few is told in more of a story format and it is amazing how well it works. You can almost think of it as an “adult” children’s book. Just solid from start to finish.

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
Like previous issues this one is a novel in disguise. You only get 24 pages but it will take you a half hour to read. So your get your money’s worth and then some in terms of entertainment value. The world creted here started off nice and sweet but as each issue comes out it gets darker with a no senese of hope left. I can not wait to see what is on the horizon for this. This issue just proves that these two know what they are doing. Take note readers this book is fantastic!
