Leaving Megalopolis: Surviving Megalopolis #6 - An Advance Review

The rescue mission that saw the only survivors of a disaster that turned the world's greatest heroes into madmen and the people of their once proud city into savages has gone south. Now the survivors' only chance lies with the most unlikely of allies - Megalopolis' super-villains, kept safe these many months in a secret underground prison...

I think it says a lot about this series that I skipped reviewing the fifth issue because there was no way I could summarize it without spoilers and no imagery I could comfortably show as a preview. Such is the demented nature of the Leaving Megalopolis series. What Gail Simone, Jim Calafiore and Jason Wright have created here is easily the best story to ever combine superheroes and survival horror in any medium.

My only objection to this story - and it is a minor one - is that the ending is not quite so satisfying as the original and, by design, you have to have read the original mini-series to fully appreciate this one. That being said, the door is left open for future installments and I for one hope we shall see them,.
