Clint is a Pulitzer winning journalist, just back from a six month assignment in Baghdad, when he's called by his editor. He asks "Have you heard about London?" and when he says "no," tells him to turn on the television, where he sees people with the "Rage" virus. He tells his editor that he'll go but he wants to take his photographer and best friend, Derrick, who is recovering from the trauma of being a hostage in the Middle East. They barely manage to get on the last airplane at JFK airport, primarily because it's filled with doctors and government agents. Midway there the plane is redirected to Frankfurt Germany, which means they've closed down the whole island. A month later, they are in France, trying to find a way to get to the UK to do their story. Clint asks a favor of Major Sanders, who is stationed nearby. He takes them to a staging area where they are trying to find a cure. THey are witness to the army giving a terrorist a dose of the virus--and the cure doesn't work.
In the next chapter, Clint and Derrick, along with Selena (the survivor from the movie) are running for their lives, being chased by the Infected zombie-like humans. They kill them and then take refuge in an abandoned house. But Derrick's wounds are infected and he has a fever. They have to find antibiotics or else he'll die. They run into a trio of survivors, take their guns and make them take them back to their hideout. The woman in charge, a big woman named Kate, says she doesn't have any supplies to spare but tells them they may find what they need in the next town over, called Halkirk. But no one has returned who ever journey there. They decide to leave Derrick and the vehicle behind and journey to the town. They don't find the a pharmacy but they do find a young boy named Douglas, who turns out to be Kate's son. He thinks they are there to rescue him and he's been communicating with her via a radio. The boy tells them there's a pharmacy on the other side of town, so that's where they go, though they encounter a lot of the infected along the way. Will they make it?
This is a good continuation of the original movie. One of the better "zombie" comics out there. This collect issues 5-8 of the Boom! series. Highly recommended.
