Chee's art is as pleasant a surprise as the writing in this issue. Chee reminds me very much of the gritty, crime noir stylings of Michael Lark or Matthew Southworth. Strong, competent line-work, heavy blacks, and emotional energy are the name of the game here. Chee's work isn't quite monotone, but features different color washes depending on the scene at hand. This issue is a strong debut both visually and in terms of the story. I'm pleasantly surprised with 5 Days to Die, and I hope that readers interested in 1 Month 2 Live will also give IDW's weekly series a fair chance. Read Full Review
While the idea behind "5 Days to Die" is interesting, Schmidt is in such a rush to get the story going that it loses a lot of its impact because of a lack of context. Maybe future issues will fill in the gaps more, but, right here, it's hard to properly connect with the protagonist or get the main idea behind the series without it being spelled out in a text piece.
