More About the Author

Nick Tapalansky is the author of some comics you should totally read, including Thanatos Diver (Th3rd World Studios, beginning October 2014), Cast No Shadow (First Second, coming 2016) and Awakening (Archaia/Boom! Studios).

His work has also been featured in the Harvey Award-winning Popgun Vol. 4 anthology and The Perhapanauts (both published by Image Comics) as well as Moon Lake and the Eisner-nominated Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard Vol. 2 (Archaia/Boom! Studios), all of which is pretty neat, if you ask his family.

Format: Paperback
edit: Contacted by the author, this omnibus is all of the books in one. I guess I finished it and it felt a bit open-ended.

I actually received this as a gift and would probably never have considered paying the retail $25 for it. I will comment on the physical book itself and say it is of great quality. The cover is made of a flexible cardboard with a matte finish, the insides are of glossy durable paper. Looks great and feels good in the hand as a book. The physical book itself is good enough to boost this thing up to 4 stars, which probably isn't a good thing.
I am not a huge zombie-head, I know a friend who is. Luckily, this story is more mystery than zombie. The story is split into a few different perspectives. It feels natural this way because the zombie apocalypse is just beginning in it's wee stages.

The artwork is... Good for the most part because it fits. The artist is Alex Eckman-Lawn, check out his website and you will see basically the style this entire book is comprised of. It's not bad, but sometimes it feels very messy. Stylish but messy because there are no clear faces, it feels like a dream almost. When I think of a character in this book, it is basically just a pitch black outline and any other features are variable depending on how the outline is positioned in the frame. I recommend you stay alert to when the story shifts to a different character.

As for the plot.. The mystery is not fully explained at the end. I remember reading the last half of the book in one sitting because I wanted to find out the mystery. The answer is not very clear. Of course, this is just Book I.

All in all, Book I is a different take on the zombie scene. I wanted the conclusion in Book I to be completely conclusive and it was not. Would I pay $25 for the next book?
Well, let's just say I wouldn't mind getting it as a gift...

I think the storyline is not that bad, but the problem with this title are the drawings and the Art. I know it was intended that way, but it is so "artistically" executed that sometimes you don't know which character is which, so you end up missing the story or finding out it makes no sense. If you read it IT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU... you will not now the character, either who he is or what he is doing... I think it could have worked better with a more elaborated art. Just my thoughts.
