28 Days Later comic - 2

28 Days Later
comic book #2

Written by Michael Alan Nelson
Interior art by Declan Shalvey
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Genre: Zombies
released: September 2009

Description from Comic Book Resources:
Bridging the gap between 28 DAYS LATER and 28 WEEKS LATER, a few key questions will be answered along the way: what happened to Selena after 28 DAYS LATER? How did Selena happen upon the machete she wields in 28 DAYS LATER?

My thoughts:
In-a-word: darker

The second comic continues to hold my attention as it puts Selena in an infested area with a group of people who are not as prepared as she is.

The first part of the comic is still setting up the situation and the characters.

The zombie action kicks in the last third of the story with Selena coming out as the heroine.

The artwork does a good job of getting the feel of the movie versions and is special in its own way as well.

Must get comic #3...
