ComicRelated.com reviews Dead Cell

Dead Cell, which hit the stands this month, just received a great review from ComicRelated.com, which you can READ IN FULL HERE. Read below for some of the review!

I was going in to this book with no pre conceived notions as to the content. I was aware somewhat of the book from having read the 11 page preview of the book and was aware that it was going to be a darkly cerebral book that looks to be well written and gladly, I wasn’t far wrong.

Coming at 76 pages this tome is a unique book in that it will appeal to a niche audience and will not appeal to everyone but that is perfectly okay. The core of the story is four stories with one over wrapping beat that revolves around a mental hospital where a wing of the hospital nicknamed The Dead Cell which puts those who cannot completely live under the realm of reality into a medicinal coma. While in the coma they are experimented upon and what follows is some exceptional thought provoking writing from Barker. The script is a well thought out and structured and word heavy tale that comes across as a very intelligent read that unsettles you and entices you in equal measure. By using the segments framed by McCoy’s thoughts was a nice way to write the story I feel and the stand out segment of the story for me, was that of Antwan Bolden which was a cruel exploration of a good kids slide into the darkness. Coupled with a cool twist at the end that I won’t reveal here but in all honesty I never saw coming for a minute, I implore you to check it out on your own and discover this gem on your own…
