From the Publisher: The gang have finally uncovered what’s caused the zombie outbreak, and the answer lies inside the Conglom-o building! Rocko will have to fight his way inside and find the solution using the one thing he hates the most: the Internet.
The cause of the zombie outbreak has been uncovered, and our team ventures to the source of the virus with hopes of ending this nightmare.
This fourth and final chapter feels somewhat rushed, somewhat convenient, but it’s fitting and effective nonetheless. Throughout this short run, there’s been a great deal of laughs as well as social commentary, and still, the series remained entertaining. Anthony Burch, and team, did a stellar job in taking recognizable characters and breathing new life into them. Now that this run has come to an end, I am eager to revisit the story, as a whole, once it’s released as a trade paperback.
There’s something in Rocko’s Modern Afterlife for fans of zombie flicks, ’90s cartoons, as well as pop-culture fanatics; read this issue–read it’s three predecessors.
The Bottom Line
Through to its final chapter, Rocko’s Modern Afterlife remained humorous and thought-provoking; this fourth issue offers readers an ending that is both fitting and satisfying.
