    Nuclear Family was a whole lot of fun with some fantastic artwork. I loved that it went distinctive there and that Shasteen apparently had some extra time to get this done at this level because of the pandemic. The end result is a really striking book that the whole team can be proud of through and through. While I had hoped for a bit more from the ending, it does deliver overall and gave me a really interesting and engaging run fill with tension, terror, and sacrifice. It'll be interesting to see if we ever return to this world. Read Full Review
