As Blackwood College prepares to bury Dean Ogden, the students plot to raise Dennis from the dead, requiring them to take a trip to the morgue. This doesn't leave any of our heroes much time to deal with feuding security teams, a missing mummy chimp, and a conspiracy of traitors planning Blackwood's destruction. Wuh-oh!

    As with past issues, Blackwood mixes the macabre with humor, angst with lightheartedness, and ties everything together with the perfect amount of weirdness. Read Full Review

    Blackwood: The Mourning After #2 is a blast to read and perfectly balances reality in a magic setting. Dorkin's talent shines in his characters; the students don't feel like caricatures. The Fish's art is the frosting on the cake you can't get enough. Read Full Review

    I'm definitely curious where this back half of the run will go as we've got a lot of neat character to work with and a lot that I'd love to spend time just hanging out with as they go about their normal school routines. Both sides of this issue work well with each tantalizing in different ways. I expect them to cross at some point but right now it feels right that they're on separate tracks and are doing their own thing while exposing us to more of what makes Blackwood what it is. Definitely a solid and welcome installment. Read Full Review
