In a time when we complain like crazy, and rightfully so, about the ever growing price of comic books wouldn't it be cool to have a comic book, A NEW ONE, for $2.50? And we re talking about a real live comic book! Not to mention... an entire line of comics? Color? Quality? YUP and YUP!
A few months ago I picked up the first ten comics from Double Take and entered an amazing and very cohesive universe. The series of books take place following the events in the 1968 cult classic film, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD! But these comics are not zombie books, they are stories that follow people and places as the end of the world has come to Evans County, Pennsylvania.
What I love about these books is that despite their following the same themes, each comic takes a very independant look at different events and situations. There is a book and a situation...and style for every comic fan. For the fans of police and FBI tales you have HONOR, SOUL and Z-MEN! Straight horror you have RISE (featuring our pal Jeff McComsey) and DEDICATION! For comics about escape and survival...HOME, SPRING and SLAB. My two favorites are MEDIC and REMOTE; books that are intense, a little gory and kinda over the top!
So instead of complaining about the price of comics and the fact that storylines don't contain continuity... take a Double Take!
