If you haven’t been reading Key of Z by Evil Ink Comics, you’ve been missing out on a great story of survival, gang warfare, loss, healing and, oh yeah, zombies. Issue #4 follows Nick Ewing as he executes his plan to bring down the ruling gangs of New York. Without giving too much away, you’ll get to see Ewing get some unexpected help in breaking out of his cell before getting to see his plan come to fruition, followed by some nasty harmonica jamming and some zombie rage.
Key of Z #4 closed out the 4 issue arc nicely while leaving room for more stories to be told. This issue saw the most zombie action in the series so far and also got a little deeper into Ewing’s past and his healing process. Overall, the series has featured some great artwork and writing and is a must-read.
