Issue Review
   November 4, 2014
Part 1 - Story rambles a lot. Changing characters and locations without much effort spent in tying it all together. I presume itís going somewhere? But this doesn't inspire confidence. 4/10

Part 2 - Although it occasionally strives to be dark and mature and thought-provoking, the parts of it that are pure nonsense make it difficult to take the rest of it seriously. This series had a strong start, but itís now just rambling onward without direction. 4/10

  The origin was a good story, but since then each story is Garth shambling blindly into some situation and killing someone.

  What the crap is this? It's like they crapped on the first issue.

  The Zombie can talk? I thought he was like Man-Thing and had no connection to his human life. Weird.
Is it just me or was that spider guy just setting up the most elaborate suicide he could? He had no control over the other spider-ladies, and they just died before he could kill them. He seemed to have no plan once it lived longer other than to die.

  "To rid the world of a useless female." Oh, that 70's misogyny!

  Irony. The zombie vs. a grave robber. There might be a point to this, but I'm not sure what just yet.

And a guy who likes to turn women into spiders? That's one scientist who's at least five different types of crazy sauce.

1 star, but let's see where this goes.

  I like that the zombie just lined up with everyone else to get off the boat. The power of the queue extends beyond death, it seems.
