When a worldwide epidemic suddenly rids the Earth of all humans, what happens to man's best friend?  GARTH ENNIS - the master wordsmith of Preacher and Crossed - delivers a story like no other, as a band of canines set out to survive on their own for the first time. This is the story of three best friends at the end of the World.   Charlie was a helper dog and he was good at getting his feeders safely around.  Now he and his pals Rover and Red must escape the failing New York City and find their way in this new order.  Ennis applies his incredible talent for creating rich and complex characters to a whole new species, with this shockingly original tale that is fully painted by Michael Dipascale.   Available with a Regular, Wraparound, and a Dog Days Order Incentive cover by series artist Michael Dipascale.

    Speaking of intense moments, while I was harping on about how eloquently the dogs talk, there is one specific phrase that they use over and over again with chilling animal bluntness. The term “I am a dog” is used multiple times as a call of surprise, of terror, of resilience of purpose. While it's worth maybe a chuckle early on, it becomes something so very disturbing and creepy by the issue's end. Leave it to Ennis to take a sentence as simple as that and make it a mantra of the person you once were. Outside of the art, by Michael Dipascale, which is beautiful at points and weirdly uncanny valley at others – I'm willing to follow this series as it heads into it's full run. Read Full Review

    Rover Red Charlie is the coming of the apocalypse as seen through the eyes of dogs. It's an interesting idea and the first issue is gripping at times, but doesn't overwhelm as many first issues have the ability to do. This is one to pick up if you have a strong stomach and you like your end of humanity-type stories. I'm picking up the second issue. Read Full Review
