    Nuclear Family is set to conclude in the next issue so things will move quickly to wrap it up and with a likely twist or two just to mess with things I suspect. This issue gives us the clearest look yet at how the war has turned the military into something even more dangerous but at the same time it's one of those things that in its own weird way needed to happen to ensure any level of survival. It's the impossible choice kind of moment when you get down to it. There are some very fun moments and grim bits throughout but it all looks great and has such a distinctive feeling about it thanks to the artwork that I really love it. Read Full Review

    Nuclear Family came out of the gates strong, but broke down somewhere between the first chapter and the fourth. It's hard to believe there's just the one issue left. Not really seeing how everything's going to come together from this point. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, the McClean family work as protagonists but not getting a better sense of who they are in this dire situation harms here as the series rounds the corner to home plate. Read Full Review
