Strange story, driven by coincidence and dumb characters making bad decisions. Ending is strange. 4/10

  This was rated low by the six before me, which I hardly understand. This was the best Tale of the Zombie so far, it was brutal and it was fitting. I enjoyed it a lot!

  Agree with Calthor on this one, this story was pretty badass. Not a 5-star, but enjoyable regardless. =p

  That was much better than the last one, but I think these stories are telling us more about the state of Steve Gerber's romantic life in 1973 than anything else.

  Wheel of morality turn turn turn... Tell us the lesson that we should learn.

Don't be a beeyotch.

  Hey, the Zombie actually did something in this issue! Lots of bad-ass imagery as well.
Found it hard to feel bad about Moira getting the melty-face treatment, when she was a disrespectful little (&#*$@ the entire issue, and that led directly to her fate.

  Brutal. I like it. But that Moira character was really, really a annoying. "I need a man who can GIVE ME things !". Erk.

  Art improved on this issue, as well as the story.

  The era of Marvel Misogyny continues. Moira is the type of wife that makes people think women are shallow, petulant and materialistic, even other women! (As Donna reacted to one of her little outburtsts) Nothing like teaching a lesson to such as woman by attacking her vanity via the old face-melt trick. It might've been more appropriate to let her live out her days like that, but good old Simon went in for the mercy-kill. Yep, brutal is the word.

3 stars. The Amulet of Damballah has a name. And I smell a Brother Voodoo crossover soon.

  Wow, Moira really should have been nicer to her husband. Purely because he was the one who decided they were going to Haiti, he was willing to become a zombie for her.
