I usually wait until the end of a review to give out my inconsistent and occasionally irrelevant scores but today I’m giving you the score for Monocyte #4 first. Then I’m going to try and back that up by talking about this comic in a way that properly justifies it. I’m almost certainly going to fail.

The comic book that imparts a real feeling that stays with you, long after you’ve read it, is getting rarer than ever.  I suppose that’s why I took so much notice of Monocyte.  Continue reading

30 Days of Night, particularly in its infancy was one of the top horror comics around, so when I hear that IDW are planning something else in the scary vein both my interest and my expectations are understandably high.
