It wasn't necessarily bad I guess, just really uninspired and the same old plot we've seen time and time again. If there were more volumes they might have been able to work it into some more interesting and original but as it is, it's just pretty boring. Also while the art is pretty, it's often hard to make out what is happening. I'm sure this is on purpose and is supposed to enhance the 'mood' or whatever but like shaky-cam in movies, I just find it annoying.

Uh, I guess zombies could be naked. But when they're not, how come their shoes come off well before the rest of their clothes tatter away? Aren't shoes usually more durable and well secured to your body?

Pretty water colors are juxtaposed with the typical comic-book style onomatiopeics in Andrew Cosby's, Damn Nation! Alongside this bizarre visual palette is an insipidly vague and irritatingly understated narrative which is embryonic at best and skeletal at best.

Unlike most (comic) books, I actually bothered to read the introduction and was pleasantly surprised to learn that Cosby was inspired by one of my favorite moves of all time, Alien! I too am a huge fan of the 1979 Ridley Scott classic and

Wish there was another volume!! I really enjoyed the storyline and darkness of the characters. Definitely a good read for horror fans.

This is one of my favourite Dark Horse gems that at some point had been in development to be adapted into film, but despite having begun scripting, budgeting and casting as far back as 2009, as far as I know this production is still in doubt.

But what prompted MTV Films to buy the feature rights to and what incited Paramount Pictures to supposedly be invested in distributing that feature to begin with is the frightening and bleak tale of a vicious vampire-like plague in a post-apocalyptic U.S. an

I actually rather enjoyed this story as it went past the usual post-apocalypse events and showed a bit of how the rest of the world would respond to such events and how a change in political power and political greed can come into play. The illustrations are suitably dark and foreboding and add a sense of anticipation and dread to the story and the finale is superb, leaving the reading hanging as to what is to come as all is not as straight forward as it seems.

Feels very much like 30 Days of Night or The Strain. The plot is rather basic and one that we've read or seen before. The art was dark and kind of scratchy and inconsistent at times, which made the whole thing rather hard to get into. Unfortunately this book didn't scare me or really do much at all for me.

A good story and beautiful art, but having only 3 issues it falls short from being anything amazing. A pity.

This one went a bit fast and there was not a lot of development around the characters, but it was entertaining and this fast-paced story ad the merit of keeping me turning the pages!

Decent Zombie novel. Simple and an easy read. At its current length it almost feels a bit cookie cutterish, if it was longer, more character development could have made it stand out more.

I'm hoping this isn't a stand alone. I like the premise of the walking dead and would like to see this series expand like that.
