|Vampires, zombies and cowboys... oh, my!|
Gears of War was an usual purchase for me, as I have never really bought into video game tie-ins, but after playing both Gears 1 and 2, I began buying eh comic book to fill in the narrative gaps in the games. Surprisingly well-written and illustrated, this book never seemed to be promoted or purchased (my local comic shop only ordered three each month--one which would be pulled for me) it just seemed to chug along. In fact, the only indication that #24 was to be the last issue was the red flag title on the cover "It all ends HERE!"
It's all good, though, as Image Comic's re-envisioned Prophet is very admirably satiating my sci-fi funny book cravings with its faux-French comic stylings... truly good stuff!
