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?
