I want to start this review very simple and make sure that you know to look at everything in this book, ahem… LOOK AT EVERYTHING IN THIS BOOK. Read it, love it but come back for seconds on the visuals. Riley you sly bastard you snuck in so much extra goodness, it was like eating a Milky Way but then as you go along you realize that your candy bar is turning into a Snickers. Layer upon layer and it all leads up to one creepy as hell ending that made me go, AHHHH!!!!! I’m not even talking about the story yet people! Plain and simple perfect artist for this book, the perfect score shows that.

Story: 4.5 out of 5
A Mystery huh? I can take what you can dish out Mr. Wiebe, and I can enjoy it all. Unlike issue #1 some of the mystery of this place called Green Wake begins to come together, but that doesn’t mean more questions can’t arise. The dialogue in this issue was amazing, what the cast discusses leads to some of the smaller answers I was after. The pacing is great, and I have to say that this book works page after page because of how well it is plotted out. Still some good things need to be sorted out here, but overall I am just loving what I am reading.

Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
I guess you all read my advance review on issue #1, ran out and bought it right? I mean it sold out so fast. The reason it did that was because of the talent of the creative team. Rossmo was made to draw this book and Wiebe is nothing short of Picasso like writer on the story. This story is so close to perfection it’s scaring me. Matter of fact I think it’s safe to say that this head is hooked and well I need more and I need it now. You need to be reading this book, because it is going to get turned up to 11 very soon.
