Artwork: 3.5 out of 5
This is fun looking action packed book. I like the character and monster designs. I think that from panel to panel and issue to issue they all stay consistent. What put me off just a bit is the coloring. I just find it to be flat. I guess I would like it if the characters had more pop. Overall though I think that it all comes together just right to make it visually appealing.
Story: 3.5 out of 5
Just like the artwork the story is fun and fast paced. I do think that the storyline is kind of along the lines of the movie The Mist. At least that is what comes to mind while I was reading these issues. The similarities are not as obvious as that may have made it sound though. The dialogue is great between the characters, with nice sharp comebacks, which I am realizing is kind of a staple in Red 5 books.
Dying Breath: 3.5 out of 5
I really enjoyed the first half of this series. The artwork and story go hand in hand as they play off each other nicely. I think that minus some minor issues this is going to be yet another solid mini from Red 5 Comics. Really worth checking out if you like monster hunter style stories.
