I liked that this issue had more going on than just the monster fights, the plotline of Derek having to tested in order to not have to go school was a good one, and the kind of thing these kinds of stories don’t normally tackle. I also liked the return of General Casey and the fact that his son is also a wannabe Dinosaur fighter. I wonder if Battle Shock will end up being a friend to Derek or a rival? This book continues to be fun, but it’s still nowhere near the level of Kirkman’s other stuff for me. Maybe that’s just my fault for not being the target audience (ie, a child) but it’s not grabbing me. I’m not against all-ages stories, but I feel that this book could be a bit more mature, look at cartoons like Avatar or Wolverine And The X-Men, they could be dark, but still appeal to kids.
