28 Days Later #15 (Boom! – Nelson / Aragon)
Selena finds a man trapped in a cage in the middle of a deserted city and she sets the man free. Selena quickly finds this to be one of the biggest mistakes she had ever made. The horror of The Infected arises again in this startling issue!
Over a year later and this book still continues to push the action, drama, horror and truly capture the spirit of the original films. Selena and Clint are all that’s left of the original documentary crew. They have either lost or been forced to leave behind everyone else, they are still be hunted by shady government forces and now they find themselves is a post-zombie-apocalypse make-shift “kingdom” ruled by an ex drug lord… and for her transgressions against the king, Selena must face “The Mannequin” It’s good for them that Selena’s “bad-ass meter” rivals that of Samuel L. Jackson.

Michael Alan Nelson really synthesizes here all things awesome and good that can happen with an action / horror story. You have great fleshed out characters who you empathize with and buy in the situation. The plot has a few over-arcing stories perfectly blended with the smaller issue-issue story. Alejandro Aragon’s art does an outstanding job of setting up every emotion and foreshadow. His work is amazing for being a relative newbie to the industry. While I have been long time fan of Nelson, I only know Aragon’s work from this series and simply put I can’t wait to see where he pops up next… in the coming years, he will be an artist to watch for!
28 Days Later is not simply a horror comic, it is an action story – laced with hardcore drama in a horrific landscape.
Bottom Line: Unless you’re 10 or younger, there is no good reason why you should not be getting this book!
