COMIC REVIEW: 28 Days Later # 7 (BOOM! Studios)

The story of Britain after the infected have taken over continues in BOOM! Studios' 28 Days Later #7. Michael Alan Nelson and Declan Shalvey return as writer and artist, with Tim Bradstreet and Sean Phillips on cover duty. Selena and crew are fighting to survive and find help for Derrick. In this issue, they encounter fellow survivors who send them on a hunt for supplies, but Selena and Clint find themselves on a completely different mission.

This issue was a great continuation of the first 6 issues, and I thought it fell in well with the films. It's a title that I look forward to reading to see what happens to the characters. So often in film prequels/sequel comics the stories are, shall we say, less than stellar. Not so with this title. Nelson creates a story that makes me care about the characters, more so than seeing the infected, much like Walking Dead. That's what makes a good zombie story to me, when it's more about the survivors.

If you liked the movies or if you are just a fan of a good zombie/survivor story to read, pick this up. It's another great title from BOOM!
