What s Good: One of the very good things about this issue for long-time readers is that it framed where this story fits in the whole saga of the films 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later. After last issue, we had seen our heroes, Selina and Clint, reach a US military safe-zone in London. I had questions about whether this was the safe-zone from the 28 Weeks film and how much the comic was going to acknowledge that second movie and how the comic would continue if it was acknowledging that second film. Well, things are a lot clearer a month later. For one thing, the final issue of this series has now been solicited, meaning that this series is wrapping up rapidly. For another, this military safe-zone that Clint and Selina have found is the one from the 28 Weeks movie. This is pretty neat: Michael Alan Nelson is telling a story that happens in the dead space between the two films and it will have a definite ending. Neither Clint or Selina were in the second film, so they could die in the next couple issues or they could be fine. We really don t know! But, by tying this story to events we re familiar with from the 28 Weeks film, we can build a sense of foreboding because we the reader know that the shit is about to hit the fan again and our heroes are completely unprepared for it. They think they re safe. It is a rare circumstance in fiction where the reader positively knows what will happen next and has to watch beloved characters wander into danger. From an actual story standpoint, this issue is mostly quiet. Clint is mostly poking around in the safe zone and asking questions that confirm this story s existence in the 28 Weeks movie world whereas Selina goes off on a touching journey to find her old house and dead husband s body pre-infection. One of the awful things about zombie-fiction is that since zombies strike you in your house your place of safety, all of the survivors have seen horrid things happen to loved ones, yet rarely have time for a real goodbye. Seeing Selina s past really makes this hit home. What s Not So Good: Well, the issue is a little slow That ll bug some people. And, while this issue really is new reader friendly, I doubt they ll get many new readers when the series is ending in a few issues. Actually, that s probably the worst thing: The series is ending. Put this up as example 532 of great comics that didn t get the sales support in the direct market that they deserved. It could very well be that this series was contracted for a certain number of issues based on whatever license Boom! signed with the people owning the rights to 28 Days/Weeks, but they would have written more story if this had sold better and there are ways that you could continue Selina and Clint s story through and after the second film. I would have loved to see the story continue for another 30-40 issues! Conclusion: A really great series is wrapping up in a way that is still new-reader friendly. Just buy issue 21 and this one and consider it like a 4-5 issue miniseries. The writing and storytelling have both been top notch throughout! Be the first to like this post.

I remember disliking it initially but really enjoyed it this time. Its possible the reasons it left such a negative impression has less to do with the film and more with me: at the time I was a zombie purist, believing anything mimicking George A. Romero films or maneuvering into the surreal in this genre was banal. I think Ive outgrown this sentiment, explaining my enjoyment this time around. Danny Boyles zombie film barfly trailer sometimes retreat into the absurd with the visuals fields of pastel looking flowers, animated windmills, etc. but where this bothered me before its now just part of the films aesthetic and doesnt really bother me. The film itself is more interesting than these few moments I disliked before; the way it presents sadism and humanitys primal instincts, whether the characters are humans or zombies, is aptly accomplished. 28 Days Laters final act is a sublime investigation of humanitys violent nature, showing whats perceived as a violent other and the violence inherent in familiars. After finding the military blockade Jim, Hannah, and Selena end up with a group of soldiers who initially seem benevolent but end up being sexually frustrated and keen on raping Jims female companions even though Hannahs only about 12 or These characters embody both sex and violence willing to commit violence for sex.
