We are then treated to one of the most interesting, even if one of the briefest, boy meets girl stories I have witnessed. As it turns out, Ella has an all too similar situation. Two people who had been actively avoiding getting close to anyone now had each other. Well, as long as they could deal with the whole, you know, continually dying dilemma.
Sadly, while the main story was fantastic, of the 28 pages of sequential story only 22 are the main story. The last 6 are a backup story called “Drive Time Commute”, which, if I’m being honest, just isn’t very good. If the backup was left out and the book was 2.99 and issue, I would have given it a 5/5. It’s honestly that good. Sadly, I have to take the comic into consideration as a whole, and this backup does more harm than good to the overall package.
Bottom line(cause Stonecold said so): If you’re a fan of dark humor, this comic is for you. I recommend it 150% for anyone who liked the movie Wristcutters: A Love Story(if you haven’t seen it, check it out as well, btw). Be warned though(as if this doesn’t pull you in more) $hit gets gruesome. It’s certainly not death scene after death scene, but when they do happen, they happen HARD.
