The notorious Hinchcliffe Case closes, but it may not do so quietly and cleanly. Secrets have emerged that will shake Deadwardian Society to its foundations. That is, if society survives...because the Restless are inside the zone.

    Since the first issue, we have been singing the praises of the work of artist I.N.J. Culbard. He delivers some of his best stuff this issue. There is a massive riot taking place and violence is spilling out into the streets all around town, but you see little of that. Instead, we see the characters, and that is where Culbard truly excels. This series looks like no other, and that is a very, very good thing. Just like the story, the art has a style all its own. The comic industry needs more books like The New Deadwardians. More fresh and new spins. New stories, not just the same old stuff over and over again. The New Deadwardians gave us that, and it's hard not to be a little sad that it's over now. Read Full Review

    A solid ending to a very solid series. The conclusion is satisfying and hopefully they'll sell enough of this in trade that Vertigo will get this guys to creator more. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Nov 1, 2012

    All told " and while it does feel quite compressed " this last chapter is a fitting and satisfying end to what has been a fun and thought-provoking series. Which is to say, while some of the devices are a little worn, the parts that really count " the world-building, and the development of the characters " all stay true to the general spirit of the comic, while still managing to surprise us a little in the end. That's a tricky balance to strike, but this comic " and this series as a whole " has pulled it off with nonchalant elegance and ghoulish charm. Read Full Review

    If you missed out on this series, I seriously urge you to seek it out either in back issues or digitally, or if you must, pick it up in trade. It's truly one of the more interesting, intelligent and fun mini-series I've read in a while. I hope these two have more up their sleeve, though as I've said, they've set the bar dangerously high with "The New Deadwardians." Read Full Review
