First Impression: Seems as good as the others.


Starts with a bang. Yorrick finally gets laid. HA. The girl he’s with is so HOT. I’m not into blondes normally. But she is cute.  Religious people might have issue with some of the things that happens in these issues, but me, I’m all for slamming organized religion. However, as I am now the mother of a young boy, I do get a bit tired of all the man haters.  And enter Beth, Yorrick’s original Beth.


2nd story- we learn more about Hero. It’s quite confusing since it’s done in flashbacks.

3rd Story SPOILERS:

We learn that the ring Yorrick was keeping to propose to with Beth is what kept him from getting sick. WOW. Did not see that coming. Yorrick is sick. Chapter 5- Yorrick has food poisoning not plague. Ha. They also have supposedly found out why Yorrick survived the Plague. Chapter 6- Yorrick reuinited with Hero. But ampersand is stolen.


(show spoiler)

Overall: Not quite as good as the others but still really good, fun and enjoyable
