[30 Day Comic Book Challenge] Day 08 – Best Series Being Published Right Now

I’m not keeping up with too many on-going series right now. I’ll read a few essential arcs here and there, but I’m not as devoted as I used to be. However, I am reading two on-going series right now and I highly recommend them both. Yes, I am aware that I am cheating an awful lot on this meme.

28 Days Later – This follows the exploits of Selena who is living in a refugee camp in Norway. An American journalist, Clint Harris, asks for her help to get to quarantined London for a story he wants to publish.  I am loving this series right now. 28 Days Later has to be one of my favorite movies, and I was delighted to see that they used Selena as the main protagonist of this series. You manage to catch glimpses of who she was before the infection while following her journey to London. The writer(s) have done an excellent job of developing character without bogging readers down with too much exposition. It’s well-paced around the action.

Chew – In America, not too far in the distant future, chicken has been banned after the avian flu sweeps the world, taking many lives. The FDA is now running things, and they run a tight ship. Enter Tony Chu. He’s a cibopath, meaning he gets psychic impressions off anything he eats. He’s recruited by the FDA to help solve murders due to this special ability. I’d read some of these before a while ago, but after hearing about a possible TV series based on this, I decided to catch up on it. Tony’s world is full of dark humor. It can come off a little over-the-top sometimes, but that’s part of its charm. Everything in this world is revolves around food, even down to the characters’ names (Tony Chu, Amelia Mintz, Mason Savoy). I know it sounds crazy, but it’s a fun read. 


This blog is a mishmash of thoughts, pictures, and rantings among other things about games I've played, games I will play, and games I am currently playing. From time to time, I may post book reviews that I've written that are about different games and/or game worlds. Feel free to recommend games or add me on the platforms I've listed. I don't do competitive multiplayer much anymore, but I'm always down for some co-op these days. I'm usually DigitalTempest everywhere unless otherwise specified.
