CBR Review: 5 Days to Die #1

I recently reviewed 5 Days to Die #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "5 Days to Die is a five-issue weekly mini-series with each issue focusing on a single day that Ray Crisara has left to live after a car accident that also seriously injured his wife and daughter.
