    Highly recommended, “‘Dia de los Muertos” #3 will definitely leave readers with a satisfying fix. Each memorable short tale visually has Rossmo's stamp on it. I look forward to what the next three tales are in the anthology. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Hansel Moreno May 21, 2013

    This story is nothing short of Ultra violent Mexploitation. This takes Riley's idea and spins it so far out of orbit. You really surprised me Mr. Keatinge. Read Full Review

    Altogether, Dia de los Muertos has been a fun read for me - which is impressive for a series about Death - and it’s always nice to salivate over Rossmo’s art. There have been a few hiccups here and there, but nothing too toxic, and I’m looking forward to this (hopefully) coming out in trade format. That’s gonna be a hell of an addition to anyone’s shelf.

    I would love to see this book transformed into something much larger than what it is now. Rossmo has a vehicle here that could be used for aspiring writers, who havent been published yet, to showcase their storytelling skills. The same goes for aspiring, talented, artists looking to showcase their work. That would be interesting, and Id definitely read that. Who knows the amount of untapped geniuses who are out there floundering in the sea of freelance hell (I should know). Thats just my wishful thinking, but so far this book has been a fun ride. The stories are well written and the art is spot on, giving the book its unique flavor. Deep down, I was hoping theyd return a few of the characters I only got to know in the first issue. For instance, I would love to see more of Zan, the Paranormal Intuitive Life Coach, the character introduced in Reflections, as a regular of the series in the same spirit as the comiczines of old. Again, my wishful thinking. Read Full Review
