“This is a fantastic zombie book.  Makkonen has an insanely terrifying style, the writing is beautiful…it’s like reading a nightmare.” ---Drunk on Comics.
 “War of the Dead is by far the greatest zombie story out there right now. Its atmosphere combined with great characters and gritty art makes this a must-buy. If it’s one mini-series you should be buying, it’s Deadworld: War of the Dead. 5 out of 5” ----Unleash the Fanboy

“This is a deliciously dark comic.” ---Civilian Reader

“It is frightening, haunting, gloomy, grave, and delectably mystifying.” ----Talking Comics

“Reed writes beautifully, even in spite of the garishness of the set and setting. As strong as the writing is, the art is matching the strides with horrific detail and atmosphere. Makkonen is an unstoppable force of creative hellfire energy, and his pages are simply gorgeous”.---The Lottery Party on issue #1

“Dead World is proving to be a solid 5-issue mini-series with strong writing and big ideas.”---Talking Comics  
“Reed excels at developing strong characters and he does a masterful job of using both the characters and the narrative to tell the story and relate past events.  Sami Makkonen’s art I think is best described as a cross between Locke’s gritty and gruesome detailed work and Ben Templesmith’s abstract design.  It works beautifully! “ ----Mania.com

Deadworld: Requiem for the World

“The writing in Deadworld is very sharp; from the very beginning we are captivated both by action and by character. Gary Reed does a good job with the voiceover throughout this book, and this is the way voiceover is supposed to be written: revealing character and information about the situation. “ ----IGN

“So far this is turning out to be an intriguing story and writer Gary Reed seems to be finding his stride here. His plotting is intricate and the one thing I am enjoying is how all the story beats neatly fall into place. ---Again, I can’t rave enough about this series.” --- Kenneth Gallant, Broken Frontier
“Gary Reed has certainly crafted a truly horrifying story, full of engaging characters, terrifying menaces and an overwhelming sense of hopelessness.” ----Paul Milligan, World’s Heavyweight Comics

“I don't care what other people say, Deadworld is the best zombie comic out there. All those others are imitiators of Deadworld as that is the original zombie comic and just because this is a new series, I don't think people should forget that.”    ---Robert Henrion

Deadworld: Dead Killer

“Dead Killer works because Gary Reed is not just a writer but a storyteller, and storytelling is almost a lost art in comics today” .---Tim Janson, Mania.com
"So, what are you waiting for? The brains to be served to you on a silver platter? Go check this innovative and downright entertaining book out. Your life might depend on it one day." ---Steven G. Saunders, Silver Bullet Reviews
