Thus endeth the first story arc with the showdown at Master Paleo BBQ. Platters of smoked meat and life lessons learned, what's not to like?

    Starve #5 closes out the first arc on a disappointing note. While the writing was efficient, the execution of the story and the resolutions within it felt far too rushed and unsatisfying. It felt as if the writer was trying to juggle too much and wrap things up too soon. It's a shame, since the ideas and areas the comic explored weren't necessarily bad, but just not fully there. Maybe the second arc will be where things get better, but right now, Starve leaves a bit to be desired. Read Full Review

    4/5 Rating..... And so this brings us to the end of Starve season one. While this wasn’t the most action-packed or tension-filled issued, one thing it did have was plot twists. Multiple jaw dropping plot twists!..... Weirdly enough, with all the shocking turn of events and major plot twists, I was left feeling underwhelmed with ending. All that hype leading up, and the last page made me say “that’s it?” Don’t get me wrong, I am beyond excited for the next part of the series to see what next season has in store and to see where the Gavin’s story is going to go now. But recent events have me a little confused as to where that direction may be. Super excited, but slightly confused about what will happen now..... Issue #1 may have started out as a story about a chef trying to regain control of his hit TV show, but it has slowly been evolving well beyond that, and this issue was a set in a new direction.....
