Rating: 4/5 – A moody zombie murder-mystery.
by ComicSpectrum EiC Bob Bretall.
This was not your standard zombie story. No zombie apocalypse. No collapse of society with a scrappy band of survivors trying to make their way in a hellish world gone wrong.
Instead, writer Nick Tapalansky has created a noirish murder mystery that just happens to involve what may very well be zombies. The narrative is enriched by Alex Eckman-Lawn’s visuals that have a rough and moody feel, loose around the edges, and perfectly matched to the story being told. I’m guessing the art won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s directly in my wheelhouse and I thoroughly enjoyed it, here’s a sample:
The first issue sets the stage as a series of gruesome murders plague the city of Park Falls. Who, or what, is behind them? The players are introduced and the mystery begins to unfold in this issue. You can read this story at zero risk (other than the time it takes to read) because issue #1 is available as a free download. If you like mysteries, zombies, or the art you see above, go now, check it out.
