    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Mar 30, 2008

    This is a good start to the series. Kurt Belcher and Stever Farfan do an excellent job conveying the tone of the story with their stark black and white imagery. There's times where it's a bit too dark for my tastes, but otherwise, very solid storytelling. Great work, guys!

    Comics Bulletin - Geoff Collins Apr 10, 2008

    Thats not enough for me to equate the story to emo. What puts this over the top is the final scene where Annette meets with her family for the first time since her feet were shot off. Her mom and dad are there with her brother who saw her get run down by a car. Whats horrible about this scene is that the family refuses to accept her back in. They feel that since they had already come to terms with her death and accepted it -- in a matter of months, not years -- they shouldnt accept her back into the family as a zombie. If my dead uncle calls me tomorrow, Im not going to say, Oh, Im sorry, but I went to your funeral and already dealt with the pain. You should go back in the ground where we left ya, jerk.
