Death Valley (2007)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
03.11.10

Death Valley (2007) story: Andrew Cosby & Johanna Stokes

art: Rhoald Marcellus

Sam is a teenager who has issues with her military father. He has to do away for a few days. While he's gone she and her friends are throwing a party down in the school's old bomb shelter and they get locked in for a day. Fortunately, this coincides with some weird atmospheric event that transforms everyone above ground into vicious zombies.

So when they emerge they see the devastation. They even go to a Mall for supplies, which I guess is an homage to DAWN OF THE DEAD, and dogs are even zombified, like in the RESIDENT EVIL movies. A few of the friends are killed along the way and quickly transform into zombies. It's when they are corned in the Hollywood hills and scrambling up one of the letters of the Hollywood sign when they are rescued by Sam's father, who reveals that this was just an event localized to the LA area. And what does the government do? They nuke the city, which I guess is an homage to RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD.

For me this book has the same problem that many recent zombie movies have--it's way too familiar and I felt as if I was experiencing a rerun. A rerun I didn't really want to watch. Bob Fingerman's graphic novel RECESS PIECES, which places students in an elementary school battling zombies, is far more entertaining.
