“Selena and her new comrades have faced the Infected, but how will they fare against all the firepower used to enforce the U.K. quarantine? The pulse-pounding conclusion to the first story arc ends here, and the crew will never be the same again!“

Artwork: 3.8 out of 5
This series has such a great look to it. Each issues is so consistent with the one before it. The colors shine and the covers rock. While this issue was a slower issue the mood was easily set by the subtle visuals that just have that look where you know things are moving at another pace. Great job on the coloring to get that effect.

Story: 3.5 out of 5
This issue pulls in the conclusion of the first arc. So it’s a slower issue that does a great job setting up for whats to come. There was one nice action scene but it wasn’t as much as past issues have given us. Just a great way to transition from one storyline to the next.

Dying Breath: 3.7 out of 5
This issue looks great, mostly done by the use of colors, and packs a great story that allows it to transition from one story line to the next smoothly. I am loving this series so far because I think it is doing a great job to bridge the two films. While this issue was moving at a slower pace it does a great job progressing the story and just delivers in the end.
