Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
Here we are yet again. Another amazing set of covers to choose from. Of course if you ask me I take the Bradstreet one. The interiors seemed to be getting better IMO. The coloring in this issue seemed so much sharper than before. I loved how certain items has bright ass highlights. The artwork itself is great and the gore scenes just pop! Amazing job on this one, I love it.

Story: 3.9 out of 5
Picking up the pace now and it’s a good thing. This issue is about 3/4 action and it works. The pace is actually nice and steady too. By that I mean in some books you can see it rushed when the action picks up, but not here. Very nice job on that. The story moves along nicely too and I just find myself enjoying this wolrd even more. The characters are all getting their distinct voices and I got some suspicions as to what’s going to go down.

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
A much more action packed issue here. The artwork shines, literally, and the story progresses. What I like is that unlike the movies where they are trying to get away and survive, here you have them going back in. That alone leaves for some nice potential. There is nothing, other than being short $3.99, that is going to keep me away from reading this comic, that is a guarantee.

If you would like to buy 28 Days Later #2 you can pick it up on Wednesday August 26 at your local comic shop. For more on Boom Studios please check out  http://www.boom-studios.com/
