    While I do wish that the series had more installments going forward and that this wasn't tagged as the end, it's a complete enough story for this cycle that it works well enough. I'll hold out hope for more but I'll also feel largely sated by what we get here because it was executed as well as it was – even if it was a bit of a rougher ride to keep up with because of the pandemic. The writing is solid with good characterization coming in for Clementine and I loved the earthy look of everything both in the illustration of it and the color design. It's a familiar tale but this spin on it worked well and leaves me wanting more. Read Full Review

    Hell Yes. Clem went all Home Alone on them. This is the end to what seems to be just the first arc. Kaplan, Kowalski and company may be leaving now, but this is most certainly not the end. How Kaplan wraps this thematic struggle between technology and primitive ways, it is executed to perfection in this book. From the action, dialogue, the development of Clem, this book fires off on all cylinders. Action and splendid art that completely wraps together this arc in the best fashion possible. In terms of execution, its nothing fancy, but its nothing short of a nigh-perfect finale.
