What a surprise. I've never read the book or seen the movies, but I enjoyed every minute of this book. My pick of the week. Excellent script and awesome art...you can't go wrong with this book. More of this, please.

mudstar reviewed Wild's End #1 Oct 15, 2014
9.0

An Abnett and Culbard team-up is a must-buy in my book, and this issue won't be changing my mind on that. Alien invasions, a drunken fox, talking animals! Grab this book. Now.

Wild's End #1

By: Dan Abnett, I.N.J. Culbard
Released: Sep 10, 2014

Inspired by the sci-fi aesthetic of War of the Worlds and the anthropomorphic characters of Blacksad and Mouse Guard, readers will be blown away by Culbard's art while fans of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's Cornetto Trilogy (SHAUN OF THE DEAD, WORLD'S END) will fall in love with Clive, Peter, and Gilbert as they try to survive an alien invasion.

Issues like this are why we read comics. Unbelievable this is a title from the "big two." If you're not reading this series, quit blowing it. Done-in-one stories unlike anything else you'll read...It'll be sad to see this team go after issue six, so enjoy it while you can.

Moon Knight #4

By: Warren Ellis, Declan Shalvey
Released: Jun 4, 2014

• Moon Knight goes somewhere even more messed up than his own mind.
•  Something is happening to the subjects of a sleep experiment that's driving them all insane.
•  Go with Moon Knight to the Mushroom graveyard planet for the most troubling and disturbing issue yet!
