It Tolls For Thee ( Law Dog Comics – Heffron / Guevara / Martin / Millet )
“Cyprus, 1208 CE. Plague has defiled a seaside dominion, and carts filled with the dead rattle through the cobbled streets. With supply lines dwindling, a tyrannical Count’s desperation mounts. Worries of plague and provender suddenly give way to new horrors, when loved ones thought lost return – as something else. A farmer’s daughter, a Templar Knight, an Eastern ambassador, a nun, an executioner – what could call upon such diversity to defend a dying village? Ask not for whom the bell tolls, for it tolls for thee! “
We ran a preview for this book a few months ago when Law Dog was kind enough to send me a copy here. Now comes time for the full review, which can be summed up in two words. Freaking Awesome!
If you love period books and zombies, but could never finds a story where they mesh, here it is! Set in 1208, the plague is taking the life of anyone and everyone. The twist on this plague is that you don’t stay dead. Buried in mass graves, the dead rise and begin there shamble across Cyprus. Left to defend humanity against the undead horde are not your typical stereotypes that are in most zombie stories ( aka: people who should die anyway). Nope, we get a colorful cast that has stories you actually care about.
It tolls for thee is right on par with Krikman’s The Walking Dead and should be on everybody’s must read list this summer!
