Shaken by a loss, the Savages move deeper into the Chernobyl exclusion zone, keeping their eyes out for any lingering Scourge presence. But it quickly becomes apparent that the area's lethal radiation is the least of their worries. Something is stalking the squad, something hungry. As it closes in, the Savages will have to live up to their name, or they'll never make it out alive.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 1, 2023

    The issue marches on, and the pacing begins to reveal itself. Two issues in, and it already feels like its organized and articulated well enough to have been running for years. If each Savage Squad mini-series could be its mission, it could become an enjoyable property over many years, with squad members occasionally dying in service to add to the stylish brutality of the series...but thats all in the future. The Squad has a small pack of monsters to deal with next month. Read Full Review
