    Filled with excessive violence and the artistic styling's Hernandez is famous for, this four issue limited series is wonderful so far, adding to the zombie canon by asking questions regarding drugs in the 21st century, post 9/11 surveillance, and issues of economic importance (non-zombified community members murder a homeless man as a preventative measure). Yet the book isn't academic or pedantic (like this statement), instead relying on Hernandez's storytelling style: excellent artwork, compelling characters, and an honest voice. Even though the year's only halfway over I have a feeling Fatima will end up being my favorite new comic of 2012. Read Full Review

    I was very excited to see this book out this week; Hernandez is one of those creators that create when they have something they want to share not because they were offered a job. If you’ve never checked out his work before then I think this series is definitely one of his more accessible series to date. Dark Horse has yet another great series added to its already impressive “Originals” line of books. Read Full Review

    However, as basic as this comic seems, I cant bash it. Just take a step back and view it from a larger standpoint. The artwork is quite charming, the story is oddly dynamic, and Fatima's character is stupidly well developed after only one issue. This is the perfect break from other zombie books because it's a whole lot of different, combined with the same themes you've come to know and love. “Fatima” will find its fair share of followers, and it's well worth a read.
