Review

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.

BRZRKR #1 Review

BRZRKR is a violent tale of a god-like super-soldier who craves to be more human, and maybe a release from his endless struggle. There is more than brutality to the story of this immortal. And yes, whoa, this is excellent.

Fear Case #2 Review

Fear Case, as one would hope, is full of some fearsome creepy material, and never lets up. Thrilling and nuanced.

Nocterra #1 Review

A novel supernatural horror tale about a world suspended in eternal night, Nocterra accomplishes everything a modern comic book should, and more. Thought-provoking and exciting, Nocterra #1 is a stunning debut that should not be missed.
