The finale of Cemetery Beach occurs this month. But issue 7 from Image is not a slow hearse ride up Boot Hill to a peaceful conclusion, no sirree.

Cemetery Beach continues to be the quickest read of the month (I clocked it as a four-minute read, but your findings might vary) and the most explosive.

Warren Ellis writes scenes that yank us forward. The dialogue is spat out or burbled out. But only when it leads somewhere. There is no blabbing or rambling of shopping lists here. And Jason Howard needs a strong ‘thank you!’ for his ability to show massive scenes of destruction and kinetic force. And people in intense scenes, acting and looking intense. It’s like Road Warrior on steroids. Great fun, honestly.

The drama continues to push an agenda of conflict. If you want adrenaline, jump on this comic before it slams to a halt, this is the final issue. Or is it??

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
