  That rat is behaving a bit too frantic and unrealistic for any kind of rat, really.

Also, 'swingers' are really soulless people, apparently.

Well, the story in this one isn't too special, but the brutality and murdering is quite innovative for this point in the Order, have hardly seen much like it!

  It appears nothing is too much for these magazines, even suggesting necrophilia...

  When will the crappy voodoo zombie stuff end? Its run it's course quickly, and is very crappy.

  Zombie is now free from control, and he is piiiiissed. Opens up some new story possibilities. The story from this one would make a nice B-movie, if it's not one already.
"Swingers", eh? Any reason to get more T&A in these mags.

  Kind of sad that the side and one-off characters in this title are a lot more memorable than what we get in the main superhero titles.

  Another episode of "1001 Uses for a Pet Zombie." Have to admit that the group having Simon do his best Michael Jackson was pretty funny. Sure beats sending him out to beat people up all the time, but maybe just have the zombie tee-pee somebody's house next time.

Figures that Fred's group would feature some scantilly-clad women. There wasn't much of that in the past few issues and a reader must've complained about the lack thereof.

3 stars, and a very bad and tasteless joke about how Dora likes whatever's stiff.....

  You'd think that when the old guy died, they'd stop messing with the zombie, but no. Dora is cold.

  This has been a fun run. I am a little worried about the next issue with a writing change though the art is still gorgeous.
