28 Days Later – The Comic

Last week I watched 28 Weeks Later, the sequel to Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later.  I was very excited to watch it as I had immensely enjoyed 28 Days and had also enjoyed the comic that linked the 2 movies – 28 Days Later: Aftermath.  This was by Atomic Fox comics and penned by Steve Niles and focussed on characters outside of the movie.  To my joy I found that despite a few plot problems I relally enjoyed the second movie as well.  That’s 3 for 3.


Now Boom! Studios are trying to see if 4 is indeed the lucky number.  The above picture is one of the 3 alternate covers for issue 1 of the ongoing series written by Michal Alan Nelson and drawn by fantastic artist Declan Shalvey.

The first story arc  focuses on Selena, one of the three survivors of the first film, as she embarks on an epic journey of her return to Great Britain.  Part of me was a little dissapointed as I’d got used to not knowing the fate of the original cast and was quite happy looking at other stories from around Britain.  However my love of this franchise is going to get the better of me I think, I’m not sure I can resist picking this up.  Here’s hoping its 4 for 4.
