    This endearingly oddball title stays strong, though not an exemplar of Vertigo material. Read Full Review

    The Dead Boy Detectives series is getting better with each issue and is rather fast paced, this issue like every other in this series will not bore any reader unless the concept of paranormal detective stories are simply outside of your tastes. Even then this series is worth a look. This issue especially is the most interesting by far simply for this philosophic exploration that it has prompted and I cant see where this idea is taken. Isolde has only made a brief appearance in this issue but due to what she knows of Charles mother its safe to say that she is here for quite a few more appearances and theres an equally great chance that this exploration through the eyes of those between life and death will become a well utilized device that allows for great commentary on the two greatest aspects of mankind, the two great unknowns.
