Decapitated Dan: I’ve said it before, and I will say it again, and again… ‘68 is hands down the most Honest and True Zombie comic out there. When you look at the Romero movies, or any true zombie movies in general, ‘68 encompasses that feel and look like no other. Then on top of that, they also tell some of the best modern Vietnam War stories you can find on the shelves. So going into this issue, that same look and feel holds true. What I LOVED most about this particular issue was the way it was told. The breakdown of two stories in the same setting was genius. Mark Kidwell brings this tale back to American soil, and it plays out as a real no win situation for the humans. The heart wrenching ending was only the icing on the cake, for how great this issue was. The artwork by Charles, Medors and Fotos is GORE-Geous. There is tons of blood and guts to go around, with some amazing looking panels. I am so happy that this issue came out too, because in the extra section there is an amazing tribute to the late Josh Medors (we miss you everyday bro). Overall I kind of feel like the ‘68 team sets the bar so high, that they might not be able to reach it again and again, yet they always prove me wrong time and time again. Horror Comic gold on all levels people. – Dying Breath 5.0 out of 5.0
