Okay, first off, if I have to try to convince you to buy a comic that contains eight premiere issues for a measly six bucks then I might just have to reassess what I am doing here.

I have reviewed any number of these titles at different times and I cannot even begin to stress to you how great of a deal this is. Dark Horse Comics continues to amaze me with their marketing strategies. I can think of no better way to test out some new comics than with this compilation. Folks, I present to you Dark Horse Number Ones!

What a wild ride this has been! Hellbreak #5 continues a tale that seems to have more twists and turns than a theme park roller coaster.

But this issue presents the reader with far more than a straight forward search and recovery style mission.

Comic Review: The Life After #1

The Life After #1
Written by Joshua Hale Fialkov
Illustrated and Colored by Gabo
Lettered by Crank!
Cover by Gabo
Oni Press
Release Date: July 9, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99
