There are flesh-eating cockroaches in the city plus other things The art is done in a blurry style that does make it harder to make out details yet it does give the comic a dark ominous atmosphere. There are Screechers in the dark in this city and they are deadly.
The group of people in the city are just trying to survive, they need to be there. The people and creatures are so hard to make out. You can a little and that part is frightening.
You can see living in this world is hard.

We see the Klan about to do what they do best, one man against way more Klan members. This one man knows yes and retribution for those who deserve it. The leader of the Klan here well he finds out what it feels like to feel fear.
Buck Hawkins does seem to be enjoying his revenge for how he was treated. The zombies are done well but Buck looks amazing as a man enjoying being the one in charge.
This story does let all know being a racist is not a good thing. Especially when Buck is around. Really though everyone should stand up and speak out against any form of racism it is just wrong.

Hip Hop music does become a part of your life for those who embrace it.
Here Patricia and Freeze are two friends. Patricia though is in a bad way. She still remembers the good times and the beat. Poor Patricia is suffering so much but she does remember the good times and how she was Queen Proppa Show Stoppa! She could dance and does again.
This is a touching story of a woman who went through a lot and she deserves to be happy and to dance. It is a sad story with a happy ending.
The art is done right and helps so much in bringing this story to life.
All the characters are so well presented you will find yourself instantly connecting with them.
