    Since this is a book that centers largely around characters talking, I.N.J. Culbard is the perfect artist for it. His simple-lined cartooning gives a sense of order and cleanliness to a world that should be dirty and dead. He also draws you into a conversation and hides the bigger scene from you. It feels cinematic when someone slowly traces circles in a bit of salt. This is a beautiful book and one that you, all of you, should be buying and reading. Read Full Review

    I can't praise this book enough. It's utterly unique with intriguing mystery. As a whole, this book is thought-provoking and amusing at times, but the characters are the real draw. Suttle and Bowes' evolving partnership and Suttle's attraction to human prostitute Sapphire are all extremely well-handled and add to the appeal of this book. I can't wait for the conclusion, but the journey itself is so delicious and enjoyable. I'm fine prolonging the experience and know I'll miss it once this series wraps up in two issues. I'm only deducting a tiny bit simply because this issue doesn't stand on its own. But don't let that stop you. Go out and grab all the back issues. You'll be glad you did. Read Full Review

    Actually, “cogent” may be the word to describe this series " fleshing out a world and its characters with both economy and bite, this is such a strong and dynamic series that it's almost painful to know it's wrapping up soon. Happily, there are whispers of another series in store from this team " and if it's even half as good as “New Deadwardians”, then the subset of comic fans who enjoy both Downton Abbey and The Walking Dead are in for a real treat.

    Not an awesome issue, but a very good one. Abnett and Culbard have created a fascinating world even if they aren't always exploring the more interesting portions of it. Read Full Review
