From the Publisher: Rocko and Spunky must brave the zombified landscape of O-Town to make it to Filburt’s house, who has taken up quite a few odd survivalist habits.


Review

On his wild ride to Filburt’s house, Rocko not only demonstrates why not wearing a seat belt is an imperative practice in the zombie apocalypse, but he also demonstrated the benefits of keeping a four-legged friend by your side.

In a world where the dead walk among the living, the living need to adapt and evolve or suffer the consequences of not doing so. And yes, I am still talking about a Rocko’s Modern Life comic book… Anthony Burch and Mattia Di Meo continue to impress with this modern zombie tale subversion; much like other zombie-based stories, the fear of the dead has morphed into the fear of the living, and as Rocko’s Modern Afterlife #2 continues to evolve, and more is examined, I find myself more and more satisfied in reading this series.

While I’m still dreading the end of this short run, I am now eager to grab a collected copy so that I can read the complete tale from start to finish, in a single sitting, of course.

The Bottom Line

The dark and intelligent humor continues in this sophomore issue; this time around, readers are privy to an inside look at the way the living change when their world becomes occupied by the dead.

The Worst Dudes #1 Review

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
