“In Los Angeles in the year 2064, the dead have risen and corpses live again, cohabiting among us…well, somewhat. As a zombie apocalypse engulfs America, we follow a group of friends on a their journey to start a little business of their own…zombie catchers!”

Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
I think we should just straight up change the title of this book to “This Book is Pretty Damn Awesome, Why Do You Not Own it Yet?” Well I guess it’s not too catchy, but it really does sum up how great this book is. First of all you get the artwork of Guy Davis, and this man can draw “horror funny” (I am starting a new genre). He has such a great command on facial expressions, and being so good at them only makes this overall story that much better. I died laughing at the cheek shaving scene, and no I won’t tell you what that means, so just go read this book. When it comes to the stories, Frissen brought his A game. There is the perfect balance of emotions, horror and of course humor. Let me again refer to the fact that someone had to come up with the idea of cheek shaving. The way that Jerry writes the dialogue for Freddy is enough to tie my stomach up in knots. The translations are flawless, and this book is just a solid winner all around. This book is a prime example of what we are missing in American comics. Humanoids has done us all a favor and brought this to us now, so do not miss out, you will be sorry if you do.
