    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 11, 2009

    Undoubtedly, someone is going to not pick this book up this week and live to regret missing it. Don't be that person. Skip taking yourself out to lunch one day this week. Maybe get a cheaper coffee a couple mornings. There's no reason you can't get that big summer title AND this one. Unless, of course, you're a younger reader. Clear this one with the folks first if you're not old enough to vote or drive. If you're a driver or voter, give this a go. Enjoy some horror and be glad you didn't take that tropical vacation to that paradise-like island. Let someone else get attacked by the zombies. You just keep working and reading some great summer comics. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Chris Partin Jul 18, 2009

    The Last Resort has just one issue out and I’m ready for the movie. Put Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray on the script now and let’s get to casting. This is a fun and entertaining book for the adults out there that need more than the day-to-day spandex heroes. We love those comics, but we need something more and the Last Resort is just that.

    Mania - Chris Smits Jul 21, 2009

    Yeah, I know... zombies are getting way played out. Keeping that in mind, The Last Resort won me over. It's definitely for the 18 and above crowd and it's done well. Keep in mind though; there's cussing, sex, gore and gay people. So if you're linguistically safe, physically pure, easily grossed out or a homophobe...stay away from this one for your own good. The rest of you will probably find this book entertaining but if you're looking for X-Rated, this ain't it. There was a part of me that thought some of the adult material was a bit forced and at first glance it seemed like "We're totally swearing and having sex!" but then I realized that it doesn't do that any more than a lot of horror films that I really like. In fact, that's one of the things that earned some respect from me towards Palmiotti and Gray; they really nailed that "horror movie feel" perfectly. Now I'm not talking The Exorcist kind of horror movie or anything, this is more of a fun spirited set-up. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jul 19, 2009

    The writers introduce a lot of characters in this first issue, which makes sense, since there are a lot of meals to be served to the monsters that await them down south. I appreciated the diversity of the cast. Some are assholes and horndogs, yes, but others are far more sympathetic. Now, given the size of the cast and space constraints, we don't get full-fledged character studies here. It's hard to get to know these characters beyond the archetypes they represent. But I appreciated just about every small moment the writers were able to provide. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jon Judy Jul 16, 2009

    So, again, if you like T and A--no shortage of T and A, mind you--some rated R humor, and zombies, youll probably like this. Me? Im like a zombie here, Im in search of more brains. Read Full Review
