Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
This was the highlight of this book. I mean that on all fronts. The covers rock, the art is good, the colors are nice and so is the lettering. I like the cartoonish look and feel that the book has, it played well with the stories. The covers all rock. You have 5 choices to go with, I lean toward Mark Bloodworth’s because I have always been a fan. You also get treated to a few pinups at the end of the book and they are really cool too. So I mean that artwork does deliver on this.
Story: 2.0 out of 5
So I don’t have too much to really praise here. At first I was thinking it would be a cool B-Movie style book, but it took a few steps too far in my opinion. The jokes boarded on being a little to dull, and were on almost every panel. Granted the idea and concept here isn’t one I expect a great storyline from, but it easily just went way over the top.
Dying Breath: 2.5 out of 5
You know I think I can sum this one up by saying, if your looking for something different but not deep than maybe this is for you. I liked the artwork and felt it went with the story well, but the story itself was just too over the top. To many jokes, placed way to often push this one past the B-Movie feel. My suggestion is to pass and just grab Chaos Campus instead.
