Issue Review

Nothing to get excited about here. The story is full of boring clichés, and the series main character is only tenuously connected to the action. Makes me wonder why this was done as a Simon Garth-episode. 4/10

  I actually kinda liked the little mystery/horror story this issue was wrapped around. It was pretty good.

  Brutal alligator-beak-snapping action! Cluedo-syle murder intrige! Poetic justice from the grave!

Some good stuff, that blood-testament...

  My favorite issue by far. Less zombie more mystery.

  There were some gruesome deaths in this and they were well orchestrated. Best zombie issue yet!

  I just read the comic book version of Clue.

  I think Zombie is getting the title for most gruesome Marvel comic so far. As someone who has been badly burned before, and thus having a fear of burning, I felt the pain on that one.
Wouldn't it have made more sense not to kill the Butler until after the will was read? If the lawyer was the only person that knew about the conditions it implicates him right away as being involved in the murders.

  Kind of seems like Doug had this mystery story idea, and they just let him write a zombie story with it.

  Typical murder mystery, with a zombie thrown in for good measure. It was missing Hercule Poirot, but was otherwise a fairly entertaining yarn. And don't forget the gratuitous gory deaths we get to see in a non-CCA book!

@TheAmazingGatorMan: Sorry about yet another one of your minions biting the dust (pg. 9-10). You just can't get a break, between Simon and Man-Thing.

3 stars. Is it me, or does the name Agatha seem synonymous with elderly ladies in the creepiest settings in the Marvel Universe?

  All this needed was either Hercule Poirot or the Midsomer orchestra to make it the perfect murder mystery.
