Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
In this issue we welcome artist Marek Oleksicki into the strange plague filled world of 28 Days later. First of all I was kind of surprised to see the change, but I think that he did an amazing job giving this new storyline it’s own feel. The character designs are kind of the same from person to person, but he did an amazing job capturing the story that I didn’t mind one bit. The covers and colors are just as spot on, and it’s just a nice standard to come to expect this great look for this series.
Story: 4.5 out of 5
This was a great issue. The storyline back tracks on itself and it’s just so fresh. I love how they are going into some detail on what happened in the States and other places in the world when the outbreak took place. This issue does a great job of setting up the new storyline, and while it’s not action packed, it’s good reading.
Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
I am seriously loving this series. Sure were only 5 issue in at this point but I don’t see how it can go wrong. The artwork and story are so exciting that I can not turn away. Expect a slower issue here as we build into the new storyline, but don’t think for a second your being let down. I love that the gap between the two movies is being filled and I think that any fan would have to own these books.
