    Now, to the artwork, provided here by Matteo Scalera. I honestly dont know where to start. I fell in love with his artwork on Black Science and seeing his work here only increases that love. He has a way of taking his gritty yet detailed style and drawing you into the pages. I found myself, as I read, moving along with the story. To me the panels werent still images frame by frame, but rather it felt like the comic in my hand was my favourite media device playing a movie. The visuals flowed perfectly with the story being told, making the book come to life and jump off the pages. While this particular issue didnt have the double page spreads of his that I have come to love, it still featured plenty of intense action scenes, as well as scenes without action where the panels were just as intense and dynamic. I for one hope to see Matteo Scalera as a staple in comics for years to come. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman May 28, 2014

    DEAD BODY ROAD is an excellent story about revenge and what it does to a person, and this savage world is filled with phenomenal artwork. The road leading to this final chapter was full of intense action, but this last issue shifts gears just a little bit to focus on fleshing out the main cast. It finally gives the strong emotional connection to Gage that I've been looking for and it delivers on this big time. But don't worry, action junkies, because Jordan, Scalera, and Dinisio still manage to pack some gripping and cinematic madness into this ending. This is a story that most definitely warrants being re-read when the collected edition is released. Thanks for the crazy ride, DEAD BODY ROAD. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Geo N May 30, 2014

    The story and art in this book would be great as an ongoing series, but as a mini-series it still manages to deliver something exceptional. Scalera already does fantastic work on one of my favorite series out right now in Black Science and I am definitely going to pick up anything by Justin Jordan in the future. If there other works are as great as Dead Body Road, how can you go wrong? Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire May 26, 2014

    Overall, DEAD BODY ROAD has been a great revenge tale, and is exactly what Jordan set out to do–much in the vein of classic revenge tales, this one ends violently and devastatingly, but not without some hope for the future and an important lesson: if you're going to seek out revenge, it's best to dig two graves. Packed with breakneck action, intriguing characters, and fantastic art, you should check out this series. Read Full Review

    Issue #6 brings the series to its adrenaline soaked conclusion, as the ever-brooding Gage inches closer to the vengeance he so desperately seeks. Artist Matteo Scalera saves his best work for last, delivering a finale so explosive that even Michael Bay can't help but nod in approval. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Adam Alamo May 29, 2014

    This story of revenge invariably ends like all such stories, which is to say there's not really a cowboy riding off into the sunset. It's a thrilling and fun ride of murder and mayhem with no real winners except us, the audience. Sometimes I want to read great dramas, and other times I want to see bullets fly and cars blow up for no other reason than they can. Thank you Dead Body Road for providing the latter.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin May 28, 2014

    Dead Body Road #6 is fast read that never seeks to become more than what it is and that's completely okay. Because in my book, as it stands, this was the right way to close out the piece as it easily earns a recommendation from me. Read Full Review
