“The film that changed horror forever continues here! It doesn’t matter who you are or what you did; if you are infected, Selena will give no mercy. Selena teaches the rest of her team the cold, hard truth of what it takes to survive in the UK after the infection has spread. Will they learn? They must.“

Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
Another amazing set of covers to choose from on this one. I just love the way both of them turned out. The interiors are right on pace with the other two issues. I love the coloring of fire in the action scenes. The artwork is great but we got less gore panels in this one.

Story: 3.7 out of 5
This issue starts off on at a good pace, but never seemed to slow down. I think it took me maybe 5 minutes to read. It’s not a bad thing, the story progressed well. Good dialogue showing the frustration between the crew. Plus a nice cliff hanger ending that just makes me want to get #4 right now.

Dying Breath: 3.9 out of 5
A nice quick start and then things slow down a little. Overall a very fast read but it moves the story along nicely. I am really enjoying this series so far. This issue does a great job of moving forward and of course you get plenty of the infected to enjoy. If you haven’t checked out this series yet, what are you waiting for?

If you would like to buy 28 Days Later #3 you can pick it up on Wednesday, October 14 at your local comic shop. For more on Boom Studios please check out http://www.boom-studios.com/
