[Review] 28 Days Later Vol. 1: London Calling

28 Days Later Vol. 1: London Calling28 Days Later Vol. 1: London Calling by Michael Alan Nelson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Brief, spoiler free summary. American journalist, Clint, tracks Selena down at a refugee camp in Norway. He wants to enlist her help in getting into London, which has been quarantined, so he can tell the real story of what happened there.

How could that go wrong? End sarcasm.

I’ve already read the first five issues in this series. My goal was to read five by next Monday, but I’ve already beat that into submission in one night. The story started a little slow for me, but the pace quickly picked up.

I’m really loving how they’re using Selena as a lead character. Too bad there’s no Jim thus far. The readers are shown Selena’s life before the infection. It’s just glimmers of who she used to be intertwined with the action of the story and doesn’t intrude on the main storyline.

I’m not to keen on the artwork, but it isn’t terrible. And the cliffhangers feel too abrupt. I know they have to to keep you hanging on to come back for more, but they feel so premature. I’m not sure if this is intentional to match the hectic pace of the story or not.

Overall, it’s kept me interested. I’d devoured those five issues before I even knew what happened.

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.
