    Overall, a story that feels equal parts Shaun Of The Dead and The Walking Dead while still remembering that this is for kids. The story by Anthony Burch is funny, and action packed. The art by the creative team leaps off the pages. Altogether, a story that will make you feel for these characters and will make you fall for them . Read Full Review

    There is a lot going on in Rocko's Modern Afterlife #1, but it's to writer Anthony Burch and artist Mattia Di Meo's credit that this series actually winds up living up to the modernity in its title as well as the afterlife. Read Full Review

    The scenario where infected zombie-like characters invade O-Town is even handled well despite zombie outbreaks being a tried-and-treaded story by now, so much so that I'm invested in a Rocko story for the first time. Read Full Review

    Mr. Bighead is an undeservedly pompous Boomer that that gets his just reward while Heffer is a PewDiePie-style YouTuber making his living streaming video game play and thus avoiding all interaction with a zombie outbreak happening right outside his bedroom door. It's weird, but I find this updated reflection of modern life oddly therapeutic.
