    Chained To The Grave is an enjoyable and exciting read. The artwork may not appeal to everyone but the experimentation really pays off with this story. If you can't find something to like on these pages you're not reading it right. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Feb 21, 2021

    Chained to the grave debuts with a well-written issue that does a good job of presenting its characters and their motivations while kicking off the story of the undead Roy Mason and his family fleeing from his murderer. Lettering throughout the issue is very well done. There's a lot of use of different fonts and speech bubbles between characters to highlight, especially with Roy. Sound effects are used effectively to suck the reader into the story too. The art is the real highlight though. The comic makes wonderful use of changing colours throughout each page in order to highlight certain objects and people. All in all, this was a solid although somewhat surreal comic that I'd recommend reading. Read Full Review

    Feverishly colorful with whip-snap 2D pop art, wrapped inside of a ‘weird western’ decanter and served with a finishing sauce of “didn’t see that coming”, more please.
