I’ve read a lot of zombie-themed comic books, but I can honestly say that I’ve never read one quite like Key of Z, and I’m going to tell you right now, from the first issue to the last issue, this series is fantastic.

I’ve been following the creation of the series since 2010 when creators Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert first announced that they would be working on a zombie comic that would take place in New York City and encompass a lot of specifics from the area under the working title Subway Seriez, which is still used as the subtitle for Key of Z, as evidenced by the cover of issue three.

As a reader of Blue Estate from the start I have seen this series develop piece after piece of an intricate puzzle, and Blue Estate #8 is no exception. As the body count grows in Blue Estate, so do the stakes. Blue Estate #8 puts a price on the head of just about everyone in it and leaves you as the reader feeling that no one is safe.

Ever since I began reading Blue Estate it’s felt like with each new issue I’ve been holding my breath waiting for a lull in action or dialogue, or anything to give me a moment’s rest. Since issue #1, Blue Estate has been delivering a virtually unending line of pulp action and Blue Estate #6: Point of No Return is no exception. From the start, creator Viktor Kalvachev and his five-man team have made it their personal mission to drag us as readers down into the literal hell that is Los Angeles on the brink of a gang war. In Blue Estate #6 we are introduced and reacquainted with some of L.A’s worst, but instead of pulling us out of the cesspool, Blue Estate grabs us by the throat and yanks us in deeper.
