MStone reviewed Pestilence #1 May 15, 2017
8.5

Good old fashioned gritty grimy dirty sexy fun. I loved it. I mean, it's not the greatest comic in the world. But I don't always feel like being emotionally moved on the deepest of levels. Sometimes I want far-fetched re-interpretations of famous historical events. Especially when zombies are involved. And Decapitations, blood, gore, boobs, and humor. I fully enjoyed the shit out of this comic and more
