The Last Resort #5

Written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray
Art by Giancarlo Caracuzzo

Palmiotti and Gray finish off their sexy tropical vacation zombie comedy series the only way such things can finish, with a lot of bloodshed, explosions, the odd decapitation, and less nudity than any other issue of this series so far.

This has been a fun romp through disaster and zombie movie clichés that has elevated itself through strong characterization and a depraved sense of humor. Caracuzzo's art has been sketchy in places, but has held up quite well over the course of the series. Darwyn Cooke's covers have thematically fit quite well, even though they don't really echo the style of the comic.

I figure this is one mini-series that will read really well when published in trade. Recommended.
