Back in 2001, the first print and play edition of Zombie Plague was released and people dug it a lot.
Cut to 2012: To coincide with a revised and much spiffier edition of the game, RSquared Studios released a comic prequel.
Zombie Plague: The Day From Hell offers some good character introductions and provides a really nice setup for the board game. The comic isn’t trying to reinvent the wheel, instead it’s offering a very loving nod without boring you with a simple cut-and-paste pastiche. The pacing is good. There’s some really clever kills in the issue but thankfully, the comic doesn’t ever descend into mindless gore. It has a nice clear layout and really clean art.
The whole thing is just a lot, a lot of fun
