I can’t believe this series is going to end in four short months. It feels like we’ve done nothing but complain that this series is taking forever to get anywhere. Now that there is an end game, and it is coming soon, it’s a bit surreal that this series is now going to finish. It feels like only three years ago we were raving about the first, $1 issue.

You can definitely tell this series is going to end on some sort of violent spree. Cause we got the perfect mix of religious ranting, ancient gods, and pissed off antagonists to make us believe nothing good is gonna come from this. I do like how this series has suddenly turned into a religious story now that we know all about the Gods that seemed to have started the plague. Of course this could be all a brilliant mislead but somehow I doubt Lemire would do a whole arc on the subject and bullshit us now. It is nice to know that I have no idea what is going to happen as this final arc goes on and I hope it stays that way.

Also, I love how Lemire did his own coloring in the first half of this issue. It has been a while since we saw the loose, sketchy Lemire art so when I opened the book I was a bit shocked to see it. But I was glad Lemire took the time to do it to add the creepy factor of Gus’s nightmare. You can also see how he has evolved as an artist once we go back to the real world and Jose Villarrubia colors for him. I bet if we look at this issue in comparison to #1 you can totally see a transformation in Lemire.

Yet another solid issue for this series. I’m a bit sad that this series is going to end soon considering it is one of the few titles I’ve stuck with since a #1 issue. But if the final arc is going to have issues with quality such as this then I’ll be happy to see it end on a high note. I just hope someone doesn’t die a horrible death in this series….especially Bobby.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 5 - Excellent


  1. Bobby could be my favorite character in comics. He has to make it through!!!! Me am like Bobby!!!!

    During Comic-Con, Lemire was saying he has a new vertigo series planned for next year. So we should be good when this series ends. But I am going to miss it.
