    Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
    My 2011 pick for the Best Book You Never Heard of is back and it is bringing all the serial killing goodness back with it! While this issue seems to build more on the back story, which is what a second issue should do, it is still an awesome read. Beginning with a horrific dream sequence, which is visually stunning, the story transfers into a mellow spot before bringing in some more bag guys for me to go gaga over. Banting’s artwork is eye melting, it fits into the “Manga” style, but he is able to really deliver on facial expressions, and his gore scenes are GORE-Geous. Ripping off someone’s arms never looked so good before! Cabrera keeps the story moving forward at a good pace, and his dialogue seems to always be spot on. I love this series, I just wish I could get it faster. While I sit here patiently waiting for more, make sure to go get the digital copies of this one. I hear printed ones may be in the works, so for now you can save some money and get the digital versions to enjoy.
