OK, first of all, that cover is fantastic. Yes it’s cheesy and campy, but it’s hilarious as hell. The insides of this comic were good, but after so much mad shit went down in the big zombie uprising arc, it’s kind of a let-down to have these rather slow issues, where each subplot only really gets a few pages to develop. I was most interested here in the story of Ellie’s relationship with Francisco the Frankenstein, it was actually quite sweet, and the page with the woman who Ellie had possessed was very fun, and told very subtly. Allred’s art was once again fantastic, the man can draw pretty much anything and make it look cool. I’m still not convinced by Spot/Scott becoming gay, but him working with Amon should be interesting, as will Gwen maybe joining the Dead Presidents, I wonder what her President name will be? Taft?

I'm still enjoying this series, but I agree with you about the way the plot has slowed -- it's not something I've really liked to see happen. I think the problem is that Robertson has allowed the cast to expand too much, too soon. It's like he doesn't have enough room every moth to fit in what he needs to have happen with everyone. I think that's the reason why Scott's coming out has come across as not bad, but not great either. Robertson was able to write it happening, but hasn't had enough room to get the actual feeling right so that it fully makes sense for the character.

I don't have a problem with Scott coming out per se, I just reckon it happened too quickly and with very little foreshadowing. One minute he has a crush on Gwen, the next minute he's coming to terms with his homosexuality. We seem to have jumped several rungs of the ladder.
