28 Days Later: Issues 1-3 (2009)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

28 Days Later: Issues 1-3 (2009) writer: Michael Alan Nelson

Artist: Declan Shalvey

This new comic book series from Boom! Studios picks up right after the first movie and continues the story of Selena, one of the three survivors from that flick. They are known as "The Manchester Three". She's in a refugee camp in Norway and is approached by an American Reporter who wants to go into London and have her for a guide. She refuses at first, but after a flashback in which we see her and her boyfriend in more peaceful times, she agrees to join the group. It consists of four other people. The only way in past the quarantine is in through Scotland, so they'll have to trek 700 kilometers to London. Their plane is almost shot down by an American fighter so they land, only to find the area infected. They narrowly escape before taking cover in a nearby building. But they have to meet their supply dropoff, who is coming in a boat. He has all their food and gear for the expedition. Selena and one of the guys, who has war experience, go outside to hotwire a van. Two of the others, inside, hear a noise and go to investigate. One of them falls through a doorway, which is an elevator shaft, but lands on something soft, though he can't see anything in the pitch black. So the other person uses her flash on her camera and sees he's standing on a stack of dead bodies and that three infected are around him. He narrowly escapes, though later on he's not so lucky. In the third issue they finally make it to their supplier, though at the end they are confronted by a barricade of ships...

I found this much more faithful to the first movie than the sequel, 28 WEEKS LATER.... It's smart having the story connected to that first film by bringing the character of Selena in, though by giving her a machete it reminds me of that African-American character from Robert Kirkman's THE WALKING DEAD comic book series. Still, it's a good read with some creepy moments. Highly recommended.
