    Overall, this issue is a bit slow ,but it is mostly used as a set up issue for the next and final act that will be coming out within the next few months. Read Full Review

    People who are reading this series are already plot committed at this point, so its worth it to see the title through to its conclusion. Those who are just now hearing about this work, pick up the trade of Act One, as starting with this issue would be detrimental to the experience, since it is the second act of a three act story. George A. Romero is an adept storyteller and this issue is another great example of that fact. Read Full Review

    It is not rare to see an old glory from the past trying to say something in the present. It is the case of Chris Claremont (writing "Nightcrawler") and the same goes for George Romero. The usual result is depressing, but this issue is not as bad as I would have expected. Romero is clearly still grabbing at an obsolete storytelling style, which is surprisingly somewhat engaging, though. With a good modernization the story could hope to compete with its primary rivals (i.e. "The Walking Dead").
