In stores April 7.  Wizard's "Best Book of 2003" kicks off the 3-part story "Widow's Pass," featuring guest artist Goran Parlov (Terminator 3: Before the Rise). Yorick, Agent #355, Dr. Mann and Ampersand hit the road again on their way to San Francisco, but a pitstop in a small town in Arizona finds them face-to-face with an anti-American (and heavily-armed) militia made up of female survivors.  The militia believes that the U.S. government is responsible for the death of all men...and they might not be wrong.  For more information, see the feature article.

    A very enjoyable issue that acts to reaffirm my belief that this is one of the best titles on the stands, a belief that was somewhat shaken by the previous arc. This opening chapter gets things off to a solid start, as it sets up a situation that I can honestly say left me stunned with that unexpected plot twist in the final pages. The issue also offers up yet another classic dialogue exchange as the opening bit where Yorick and Agent 355 get to talking about their favorite smell is a wonderful back and forth conversation, and the humor of this exchange is perfectly quashed by Dr. Mann's sobering realization as she starts listing off the various animal species that are starting die off. I also have to give the book full marks for its continued introduction of engaging supporting players that I'm always disappointed to see wander off into the sunset when the story moves along to the next arc, as P.J. is a great character that I'd love to see join Yorick's group for the rest of the journ Read Full Review
