    The short and skinny is that its a fun book, that looks fun and is over the top enough to never take itself too seriously. Read Full Review

    So Obama, Az, Jude, Tommy, Justina, and a presidential advisor named Chip are taking shelter together to weather the storm and battle the zombie threat. Despite my criticisms, Im looking forward to future issues. The creative team has effectively won me over. While Jude might be way too obnoxious for me to ever like, Az and Justina have the potential to improve. I genuinely hope that they do. This is a comic that I really like and want to love. There are just a few things that need to be worked out first, and theres plenty of time. Read Full Review

    It's likely to do with the fact thatthe story is basedon a movie treatment that the pacing of the story is working so well. The zombie-animal outbreak is a cool, totally far-fetched variation on the theme, and the first three issues have given us plenty of horror action whilst still managing to focus on characters. Most other books would squeeze all this into two issues and leave me asking questions, but as we head into the ‘second act', it feels like things are moving along at just the right speed, and this book only stands to get more entertaining in where its headed.

    We The Nerdy - James Connolly Nov 15, 2013

    The Other Dead is far from boring and is very fast paced but at 3 issues deep is falling shy of being compelling enough to really hook me and make me feel invested in this story. If you want a gorgeous, action packed, quick read The Other Dead is a good place to find it. Beyond that, I'd look elsewhere. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Nov 12, 2013

    The Other Dead has promise but this issues simply doesn't showcase it. It's a lot of set-up which barely moves the story forward from issue #2 and it's been much of the same since the animals first attacked. If you like the unusual concept, give the book a try, because, the zombie gore is worth at least the first three issues. I only hope we can start to care about the main characters and strip the Obama stunt down to it's base ingredient and make an ass-kicking, zombie killing POTUS. Read Full Review
