    Default Rebel Blood #4. Spoilers

    I haven't read any reviews or news about it, what you everyone think of it. So was the whole outbreak all in his head, or was it covered up to make it look like just a crazed murder spree. Still don't completely understand the whole Red/ Antler monster connection. Would love to hear other peoples interpretation of the series.

    I haven't read it yet, but I thought it was in his head.

    Yep. All the clues were in the first issue, if I recall.

    I'm hoping to hear others' thoughts as well, because I have zero clue what the ending is supposed to be. All in his head? A terrorist biological plot? Some kind of warped view of reality? What exactly was going on and who is Red/"Deer Man?" I liked the first three issues, but I'm so lost on this final one.

    After reading the three first issues I was doubting Riley's writting talent(always loved his artistic style), boy was I wrong to doubt Riley. Issue four made this one of the best horror comic minis I've read.I thought it was obvious in issue four that Neville was influenced my the one( Satan) who influences anybody to do evil or seen as sometimes "crazy" things. Glad I did not give up on this mini I picked up issue four just for the art and was left blown away by the story. Congrats to Riley, I won't doubt your writing talent again.
    Good reading

    I'm kind of not making the Satan connection either. But, it did seem like it was all in head, even from the beginning. Overall, a good read. Rossmo is a great artist, and seems to be able to make a decent enough story as well.

    Well, I won't get into the Satan connection, but I see Riley did his job. I suppose it's a story that can be interpruted by people differently, hence the news artiicles that he wrote in the back about people interpreting what they saw differently. This must have been better written then I originally thought, kudos to Riley.
    Good reading,

    We must know how Satan is relevant to all of this. We must know.

    I got the first three issues, based on your recomendation, and the last one was sold out. I'm holding you responsible for depriving me of this conclusion. LOL.

    I wanted to see where it would go. I kind of figured it was in his head, but I wanted to see how it would end up. Like you said, it's one of those series where you can go back and reread it and look for clues. I like that kind of stuff where nuggets are hidden throughout. Overall, I thought it was good--not great, but not bad either.

    I can tell you one thing that is annoying me about a good number of books recently--I don't like when they put musical lyrics in the books. From Before Watchment, to this, to Mind the Gap--enough already.

    All depends on how it's done. Casanova does it beautifully.

    Finally read issues 2-4 last night. What a wonderfully screwed up story.
