Deadworld: Restoration #1 Review 

 

Writer: Gary Reed

Artist: Sami Makkonen 

Publisher: IDW

Release Date: December 4, 2013

Rating: 8 out of 10

Synopsis: The lepers have been slaughtered, the people who escaped the breeder pits head for the safety of New Washington, and now the zombies are under the control of Donna, the half-human/half-zombie hybrid.  With King Zombie dead, she leads the zombies.  Or does she?

Our Thoughts: The first issue of “Deadworld: Restoration” does a fantastic job of staying true to the “Deadworld” comics before, while breathing an intriguing new twist into this miniseries, a hybrid zombie/human?  While trying to navigate this new post apocalyptic world, Reed shows his characters dealing not only with the undead, but also the inhumanity that now arises within humanity. Besides developing the human side of the characters, he also sets up for some great, gritty and gory scenes horror comics fans will love.  Makkonen’s artistic style is a perfect complement to Reed’s story. His sweeping tones and style lend themselves well in creating the eerie, dark, and brooding mood of the book.

One of my favorite aspects of this “Deadworld:Restoration” #1 is that it delivers a full weighty story.  No ads, no filler, just 30 pages of hardcore horror story and art.  If you’re a horror comic fan, Deadworld: Restoration is one you can sink your teeth into.  On sale December 5th!
