    I’ve been really digging this title, it gives you almost a Walking Dead type vibe. Resurrection picks up at the best part of the story (for me at least) … what to do when the war is over. There was a great panel in the last issue when the crazy-lady scientist is tracking down her lost “bug” Spock and comes across two shell-shocked hunters. She asks if they had seen a “bug”, and they responded yes … and it threw us off when it spoke English … and then she plugged them both. Great stuff.

    The only problem that I’ve been having is getting my LCS to order the title, as they aren’t known to stock these ONI Press titles. So Stephen, get your buddies over there to work some magic for me.
