    I really enjoyed this series overall with what it did and the complexity of what it's trying to get across. As Patrik says in the afterword, it could have gone in a lot of different directions and I'd actually be curious to see how so many of them could have turned out – except for the one lettered in comic sans. The concept here is a solid one and it delivers a familiar thing in a way that resonates and works well. The script is solid with a good mix of action elements and character material with some great dialogue and difficult things for the characters to work through. I loved the look of it as Rubine consistently delivers (and avoids mullets as necessary) so that we have something that really strands out, especially in Briski's work in the color design for these infected areas. Definitely a treat for those that discover it in collected form. Read Full Review

    A solid enough ending to a surprisingly good series. I know this issue came out right after new years, but I'd consider this a top 10 series of 2022.
