In the aftermath of last issue's violence, the teens find themselves separated into two groups. Scared, injured, and bloody, they try to reunite and escape, but the danger is far from over. More strange creatures emerge from the shadows. It's the mall itself sending these monsters, and it wants to ensure none of its shoppers will ever leave . . .

"...this is one I definitely recommend to readers new and old whether you're a fan of Grey's Anatomy or the Underworld films-or both!" -But Why Tho? Podcast

    Dead Mall is moving at a deliciously slow pace that could easily stretch out for a delightfully agonizing few dozen issues. Cesare and Stoll wouldnt even have to add any characters to the ensemble. The dynamic between the conflict and the characters clearly draws a lot of inspiration from cheesy horror films, but a series like this could remain quite entertaining even if it ran the same plot out much longer than the traditional three-act Hollywood plot structure. Its a shopping mall. There are SO many themes that could be covered in the course of the series.  Read Full Review

They story is strong, though the artwork is a little inconsistent and largely lacking on the monsters most readers are looking for in a series like this. Read Full Review

    Dead Mall feels pretty meandering so far. While I typically enjoy horror-centric stories like this, Dead Mall feels like it's not really building to anything specific. Read Full Review
