From the Publisher: Rocko and Filburt finally manage to make it to Heffer’s house, but have they made it in time to prevent their dear pal from turning into a zombie? Dr. Hutchison makes her debut in the series with an earth-shaking revelation about what’s causing the outbreak.
After Rocko and Filburt make it to Heffer’s house and learn of their friend’s fate, the team searches for answers and seeks out a cure for the virus plaguing their town.
Up until this issue, the social commentary has been subtle throughout this mini-series; here in Rocko’s Modern Afterlife #3, the commentary is biting. Still, the use of humor is effective, and, because of the careful attention paid to balance, Anthony Burch continues to entertain while providing food for thought. Mattia Di Meo continues to pack light and energy into what would otherwise be a dark tale, and ultimately, the creative team produces an extremely well-rounded read.
With just one issue left, I’m eager to see how this plot ends.
The Bottom Line
The stage is set for an epic conclusion. Rocko’s Modern Afterlife continues to impress with its wit and biting social commentary.
