Call of Duty Zombies 2 #1

When the dead rise whose duty is it to stop them?

Although the title has the word ‘Zombies’ in it the cover doesn’t show any sign of what you’d expect to find inside, however it shows exactly what you get inside, men fighting men and not zombies.

Not being a gamer and having never played the call of duty games i was intrigued by this comic having zombies in it. Being a fan of all things zombies this was a no brainer to pick up.

Set in 1910 and not really having any zombies in this issue was a bit of a let down, the story revolves around a man looking for the ‘sceptre or Ra’ a magical artefact that can, as it turns out raise the dead.

After his friend dies from multiply bullet wounds he uses the magic sceptre to bring him back, for now (at least) he appears to still be himself and has no hunger for human flesh, that i hope will change in the comic issues.

The art is done well although some of the panels seem a little static during action scenes.

The story is slow paced and the build up lags a little in places, not until the final few pages do get a glimps of anything supernatural.

For a comic book based on a game about both war and zombies this book has a surprising lack of both.

This isn’t one i would have picked up had i flicked through it first but sometimes a slow build can lead to great things, lets hope this is one of those books.

Do you agree with my review, or think I couldn’t be more wrong?

I've been collecting comics since I was 13. A comic shop near where I lived was closing down and selling all their back issues for 25p. My cousin and I had a look around. I had £5 and spent it all on Wonder Woman comics. For the next decade I picked up a few more here and there but nothing serious until I spent the day in the centre of London and saw half a dozen comic book stores. It didn't take long after that to complete the whole 226 issue run. While collecting Wonder Woman comics, several more titles peeked my interest including Supergirl and Young Justice by Peter David which to this day have been my all time favourite comic runs. Now I'm almost 8,000 comics deep into my obsession and have been lucky enough to review comics for the past couple of years and now have my own site to share my passion.
