    The Gravediggers Union takes something as strange as a space-monkey and makes it one of the coolest maguffins since the Holy Grail in The Last Crusade. This comic could have been about a group of old dudes fighting off zombies in a cemetery every night. There is an element of that in here, but it has evolved to be so much more than that. Writer Wes Craig has crafted this surreal supernatural adventure filled with action, intrigue, and a whole lot of heart. Read Full Review

This doesn't preclude this issue from being tons of fun: a hell-bent cult, straight out of the Eyes Wide Shut wardrobe room, faces off against an army of unionized grisly gravediggers over a space monkey hidden in plain sight at the Coney Island zoo. Horror comics don't get any better than this. Read Full Review
