The best zombie themed graphic novel I’ve ever read. Uniquely for this genre you are immediately thrust into the action, and the story unfolds from there. A Natural progression and journey with a few surprises here an there.
This book borrows freely from the mechanics of a first-person shooter video game, especially the good one’s like Half LIfe which additionally are excellent at telling a story. Some of the themes and and the story arc borrow almost too much, enough to make me possibly uncofortable in the copyright department.
Brian Ralph’s offering could have been extremely boring if it was indeed just a video game in graphic novel form, the lack of interactivity would have doomed it. Instead it offers an extremely engaging story that pulls you along to the end with a few haunting images in between and implicating you in an action that you yourself the reader may or may not have taken.
