Users who pulled this comic:


  1. K they got me for the $1 #1 …. but man , i dunno i just didn’t feel it was that strong. 

  2. I figure if I buy this, it’s like two issues for $2 a piece.  If this doesn’t sell me on the series though, I’m out

  3. First issue was underwhelming, but by no means bad. The concept has a lot of potential. I’m a fan of Chris Roberson, and of course one can never go entirely wrong with the brilliant Allreds.

    So I’m definitely on board for this issue, but if Roberson doesn’t pick up the pace I may drop after the first arc.

  4. i agree with every other comment. they have one more issue to get me to read

  5. I liked last issue, but like everyone else is saying this is going to be make or break for me. There’s only so far I’ll go for Allred.

  6. I love Mike Allred.  He’s one of the reasons I got into comics, but I want to see something exciting and interesting.  

    @edward:  Ditto 

  7. Happily surprised when I saw this today.

  8. that is an awesome cover, by the way

  9. So… I guess I’m the only one who actually really liked the first issue?

  10. I liked the last issue so much, I ended up buying some Madman issues.

  11. @Amircat: for the art or story though? you should read Allred’s x-force and x-statix runs. good story and great art

  12. @edward – for the art. Story is **aight**

  13. X-force and X-statix, brother. That’s the good stuff.

  14. Yup. this will be a decision making issue for me too.  Continue in singles?/Trade wait?/or completely forget about it?  Allred drew me in, but will Roberson play for keeps?

    I never buy any ‘X’ books, but I will have to check out Allred’s X-force and X-statix runs.

  15. @Jwaesch: don’t worry. they are barely x-books. they’re spereate from that stuff

  16. @edward- cool.  I kinda figured as much, but thanks for the feedback.

  17. I’ll second @edward’s recommendation. X-Force/Statix is great stuff.

  18. What was wrong with the first issue? It seemed like a fine set-up issue with really nice pencils, but that’s just me. 

  19. @JesseG: i thought the first issue felt perfunctory. it seemed like the start of a totally by the numbers comic. the quicky tone was a little forced, the characters a little dull.

    the art was great though

  20. @ed thanks for the Allred recommends.  I’ll check ’em out.

  21. I agree, the first issue wan’t bad, it’s just there wasn’t a whole lot that seemed unique and interesting. Well written, just not surprising enough. Hopefully this issue will introduce something to grab onto.

  22. Marvel really needs to rerelease some x-force/x-statix trades or do an omnibus. Maybe those big trades like they did with ultimate spidey or Morrison’s x-men.

  23. I enjoyed the first issue. I thought it was gonna be just about the zombie chick, but they kept introducing other monsters and every time they did I went oh! oh! OH I see what’s going on here!

  24. Judging from all the comments posted, I feel like I’m the only one who was blown away by the first issue.  My expectations were low going into it, so maybe that had something to do with it, but I felt the storytelling was spot on, the art amazing, and the idea very unique.

  25. I think one of the biggest problems with the first issue is they waited until the last few pages to reveal that she was a zombie, depsite the fact that it’s on the cover, in all the solicitations, and the title.  It’d be like the first episode of Lost ending with a reveal that they’re on an island.

  26. @Slockhart:  That was one of my favorite things about the storytelling in the first issue.  It didn’t have to beat you over the head with the fact that she was a zombie, it made a point of clearly introducing/defining the ensemble cast.  They can often make the difference between a good book and a great book.

  27. I’m interested to hear everyone’s reaction to #2. An (early) average of 4.3 is heartening though. I’m hoping I made the right decision of sticking around another month…

  28. I am not usually a fan of horror, zombie, indy or Vertigo comics. That said I love this book. I get the appeal of straightforward story and classic art style. This is a good comic book, period.
