Publisher: Devils Due


When we last met our intrepid squad, they were hot on the trail of a Nazi train, being led by some local resistance. However, the locals turned out to actually be possessed by demons, and now the squad has walked right into a trap!

While I think this storyline would make a great film, itís just a bit slow for my tastes in comic form. The first half of the issue has the squad fighting the zombies and attacking the Nazi mage. The second half has themÖ driving to the train area and getting in. It just seems like not enough happens for me to have to wait another entire month. Donít get me wrong, I like the story; I guess I would just suggest the trade, if they collect it once itís done.

Iíve mentioned before that I think the art style is out of place with the content, but other than that, I like it. Itís detailed enough to maintain clarity and provide emotion. It would be interesting to see some professional colorists take a stab at adding some depth to the images.

Overall I give it a decent rating, since the story is good. I just am not a big fan of the pacing.
