    This comic has the right amount of horror, dread and Tarantino-type story telling (that's a compliment) that can easily be translated to the big screen as a movie.

    Ultimately however, the series still needs a better hook to wrap readers in the tale from Boom and while its appreciated that our star is given more backstory here, it feels like something is missing overall. Read Full Review
