The Consultant brings Essie, Nettie, and the kid army into Hell to save Jude and Hemingway. However, the Consultant's new love-and-flowers attitude melts quickly in the hellish heat, and Essie soon has a fight on her hands. It's up to Ometochtli, the last of the Old Gods, to tip the scales in their favor... but they might also be tipping their hand.

    As a result of theaforementionedfight sequence, The Life After #9is a painfully quick read. Although this is a fun issue, the lack of substantial character or plot development cause it to feel ultimately like filler. Any tension is undermined by crasshumor, which Fialkov uses to the point of excess.Furthermore, the issue's conclusion is overly violent and abrupt that should come with a warning for readers regarding potential whiplash injuries. These factors result inThe Life After #9becoming perhaps the weakest entry in the series, far from abad thing givenit's overall quality. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Apr 23, 2015

    The book ends quite abruptly and quite violently. As previously mentioned, Fialkov and Gabo have a way of introducing violent moments into the book without warning. In this issue, such an event occurs twice and each time it is very effective. As the book comes to an end, the story certainly sets itself up for what looks to be a very exciting next few issues. After a good number of setup issues that introduced the world and many elements of the universe, Gabo and Fialkov have spent recent chapters on putting pieces into place for what looks to be a pretty massive clash between sides. With such a rich world to play in, the creators seem to be in a place where almost anything could happen and not only would it fit in the world they have built, but it will likely be things the readers have not seen in books before. That is certainly a unique and impressive place to be and a credit to what Gabo and Fialkov have accomplished with The Life After. Read Full Review
