Black Gas #3 (of 3)

Warren Ellis' Black Gas concluded this week.  I enjoyed the mini, though it ended rather predictably w/ Tyler's infection and eventual death at the hands of his kickin'-ass-and-takin'-names girlfriend Soo.  No worries for the next installment though (another mini is planned for release in the fall) since Soo is the much stronger lead character anyways... 

In the end Black Gas was pretty much your typical high-gore zombie story (unique only by the cause of this particular zombie plague), but i'd be lying if i said i didn't enjoy it.  I guess i'm a sucker for this kind of stuff :)  I'm most certainly onboard for the next installment...  and glad to hear there is already one planned.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
