    Postal #25 proves that a series finale does not need totidily wrap up the story to satisfy.The book ends on an ambiguous note,with Mark and Laura's respective futures on the line. However, readers that have been following this story and these characters over the course of the series should draw very similar conclusions about their fates. The series has repeatedly shown that these characters " and by extension, people in general " are willing to do or sacrifice anything for the sake of their loved ones. It is a surprisingly sweet sentiment for a book about ex-cons living in a community supported by corrupt government officials. That surprising dichotomy is what madePostalone of the most unique books on the market, and its absence will take substantial effort to fill. Read Full Review

    This is an extended book which runs well beyond the normal comic book page count. The story in this issue made superb use of that space and it packed in some detailed character development. The art is superb but the star of the show was the coloring from K Michael Russell. Wonderful vibrant colors and a vast range of different colors deployed in bold ways. A great comic book, and I'm glad I decided to take the plunge partway through the series. Read Full Review

    Folks hoping for a cut-and-dry finale for Postal #25 may find themselves disappointed " with luck, the Mark and Maggie one-shots will provide a little more closure, but Bryan Hill, Isaac Goodheart, Russell, and Troy Peteri still deliver an impeccable story whose ambiguity suits the city of Eden's complicated past.
