FROM THE PUBLISHER: “SACRIFICES MUST BE MADE” There’s a secret, savage world far below the streets of New York—and Section Zero must survive it in order to find their missing leader. KARL KESEL (Harley Quinn, Superboy) and TOM(The Death of Superman, Superboy) continue their high-octane, high-adventure miniseries.
C.H.U.D’s I tell ya, freaking C.H.U.D’s! That’s one thing I gained from issue #3 of Section Zero. The weird really came crashing down on Sam and team in this issue. I quickly lowered my expectations for this series since reading issue #1. I thought it was going to be my style, and at parts, it was. UFO’s, secret agencies, magic and mystical creatures. Some parts of the story and the lead human characters were just lacking for me. Going forward I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t know what would be coming next. I’m glad I didn’t write this series in my head before hand, because in this issue, C.H.U.D are not what I would have expected in a million years, and I love it.
Cannibalistic sewer people. What’s not to like right? Reminds me of the movies my brother would watch when we were growing up, B level horror movies. My dad was into them as well. Return of the Night of the Living Dead, Toxic Avenger, Critters and so many more. One thing I didn’t expect from reading this book was to be reminded of growing up in the late 80’s early 90’s, and what movies my father liked. I love horror movies now, and I think its because of his love for them as well. My brother was fonder of the b level ones than I, but I can appreciate the goofiness of the movies, the entertainment factor. That’s what this book is for me now, just goofy and with an entertainment factor that does vary from issue to issue. Small splashes of human backstory here and there. Real life stakes, and some story movement as well. Issue #3 of Section Zero is embracing what it is. And I’m learning to be ok with that.
Now C.H.U.D II: Bud the C.H.U.D now there’s a movi…alright moving on.
RATING: LET’S GO!
