Nettie's reunion with her baby daughter isn't all she'd hoped--Essie's grown six years in a few moments apart, and now she doesn't even remember her mother. Not to mention that she's the leader of a rebel kid army and hangs out with a giant bunny god all day. Meanwhile, Jude and Hemingway are separated from the group and end up sunning somewhere a little too warm, and the Foreman deals with the repercussions of losing Jude in some not-so-pleasant ways. BONUS: A celestial coup d'etat!

    Readers will certainly have a lot to chew on upon reading The Life After #7. The book has yet to slow down and still manages to bring a whole new rush of excitement each time. Gabos art continues to be an impressive complement to the story. From the amazing design of creatures like the Seraphim to the massive god, Ometochtli, readers have as much to look forward to from Gabo as they do from Fialkov. With God as a potato, sequences depicting immense tragedy and the underworld beginning to really get involved, there truly is no predicting what may come from chapter eight. The Life After is as entertaining as it is unexpected and its creators are bringing readers on one of the most unique rides in comics right now. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Feb 24, 2015

    Scenes that were inspired by Star Wars, a character that can remain in the shadows despite the room he's in being fully lit, horrific scenes of death, and murder. Fialkov and Gabo take all of these things and weave them into a terrific book that I never want to end. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - John F. Trent Feb 24, 2015

    Joshua Hale Fialkov and Gabo produce another weird and strange issue with The Life After #7. It is definitely an improvement from the last issue, but still experiences some setbacks with fragmented stories splitting the attention of the reader and not allowing for emotional connections. There is an obvious grammatical error that is hard to interpret even with context (and may allude to one of Hemingway's works or purposely making him speak in the way of his time period). However, Gabo continues to raise the bar of weirdness and adds some outright shock factor to his artwork. Read Full Review
