    Dead Day has been a fun series overall with some amusing twists and turns along the way. There are areas, such as with Brandon, where it feels like a whole lot more is left to be explored there and hopefully we do get to that someday. I like the smaller focus each installment had on someone that was rising while also dealing heavily with this main story on Melissa and her family. It helped to add some additional context to this twelve or so hours of craziness that unfolded with some strong and enjoyable artwork from Bornyakov that really set the tone of it well. Hopefully, the series will see additional play in trade form down the line as it hits more markets. Read Full Review

    Still, it's an excellent read and, when taking this issue with the whole of the series, one of the better comics this year. I just wish there had been more. Read Full Review

    This was actually quite excellent when I read it through in one read. It certainly subverts your typically zombie story, and it comes to a rather thought-provoking and warm ending for such a story surrounding zombies. The ideas and themes of this story, and how Parrott conceives this through his dialogue is damn I say it a masterpiece. His ideas on life, on death, on people's past and people's future., on family. His dialogue easily is the standpoint of this series.

    Art by Bornyakov was great as well, especially the pencils of the zombies. Don't expect your typically zombie mash, because trust me, this is far from it. This story reaches new levels that I haven't seen before in zombie comics. It might be a little slow and dragged more
