Comments: “Black Friday” Zombillenium is an amusement park. It is far more than just that to as zombies, vampires, and werewolves roam its grounds and it delivers souls to Hell. Also, it has a witch working there, Gretchen. Gretchen seems to be in control of the park.
Gretchen does look cool flying around on her skateboard broom. This skateboard broom does look amazing and is unique. There are others with magic like her but who are they and why are they in this comic?
The story now would be a lot better if we knew more about who everyone is and what they are personally like it would make the story better so we would care more about the characters.
There is lot of action as monsters chase humans. Monsters fight monsters as well. It all seems to be over who will control the park.
“Sabbath Grand” Here five witches of which Gretchen is one, compete in a colosseum-style match, the Sabbath Grand Derby. The witches are shown going all out using different styles of magic against each other. The art illustrates them in exciting action and they are drawn cute too. The end of this competition is what all the workers in the park wanted.
Things quieted down at Zombillenium after Gretchen was finished. Gretchen is a kind loving witch who can and does get down and dirty doing what she has to to fight back. The story though is too confusing with too many characters running around.
