    I've never read a zombie book like this before and I'm in awe! I'm in for the run of this series until I die, and then I'll probably continue to purchase it as one of the undead. The story is thrilling and the visuals sumptuous. Highest possible recommendation.= Read Full Review

    Something about a zombie story gets my blood pumping and a good one really keeps me on the edge of my seat. Pestilence #2 did exactly that. The artwork woven in beautifully with the story kept my attention and I reread this comic many time already. I really enjoyed it and will be throwing it in my monthly box as I can't wait for issue three. This is going to be a fun ride. I can tell already. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jun 9, 2017

    It would be easy to call Pestilence "The Walking Dead in the Dark Ages" but that would be doing the book a disservice. It's taking the traditional zombie tropes and putting a unique spin on them, amplifying the energy and making the undead a real and terrifying force to be reckoned with. This comic is reframing a dark time in history into a zombie uprising and it's pretty friggin' cool. Read Full Review
