"The world went to hell in a hand basket. A highly infectious disease has turned every living thing into zombies. Your neighbors will rend your flesh with their bare teeth. So will the rats. And if the rats don't, the squirrels will. Save yourself. Stay in the woods. Pray it hasn't reached the wolves...and keep your gun loaded."

The jumping back and forth in time in addition to the imagined scenario's of his journey/act to save his family was a bit confusing and turned me off from wanting to buy the 2nd i Read Full Review

    Well-worth checking out unless you're just opposed to apocalypse stories on principal. This has all the mystery and danger that make these sorts of stories fun and it is drawn by an outstanding artist. It's hard to go wrong with that combo. Read Full Review

    Even if the writing was terrible, Rebel Blood would still be a comic worth looking at. Thankfully, the story is just as engaging as the artwork and I am excited to see where this mini-series will go. Read Full Review

    The writing and art on this book are solid. I'm sure that a lot of people are going to have a hard time following along with the story, but with this type of book you need to ride it out to the end to find out if it truly does or does not make sense. Right now, I have a good idea of what's going on in the story and plot and I'm interested to see how it develops further. Read Full Review

    "I wish the creators would have done more with that," would actually be a good summary of how I felt about the book. After pop culture stops caring about the undead and all the cool kids are writing Quetzalcoatl slash fiction and rolling in cash, only the best zombie stories will survive. Alex Link and Riley Rossmo had some really good ideas here, and if they had taken those ideas and just went balls-out with them, Rebel Blood could have been great.  Read Full Review

    The art from Alex Link doesn't help matters. I'm guessing he was trying to make it weird or noir or horror-noir but it mostly looks rushed and unfinished. Somebody needs to inform Mr. Link that hurriedly slashing a bunch of lines together doesn't make the work seem "edgy" or "dark." Rebel Blood is a travesty. Avoid it like you would avoid an oncoming herd of real zombies. Read Full Review
