As the dead begin to rise, Melissa follows a mysterious rider on a journey back into a life that could have been and Brandon witnesses how both the faithful and faithless deal with the undead walking the earth.

From writer Ryan Parrott (OBERON, VOLITION, Power Rangers) and artist Evgeniy Bornyakov (DESCENDENT, YOU ARE OBSOLETE) comes an unnerving tale of exis-tential horror with grave consequences.

    Though the gap between the first and second issues didn't do the series any favors, there's a lot to like here and the opening was distinctive enough that once you start reading this it all comes back pretty quickly. Parrott's script covers a lot of ground while dealing with just a few characters – keep it small is key here – and leaning into some familiar territory with the obvious twist. Bornyakov has been one of my favorite artists that has done a lot at AfterShock in the last couple of years and his style is perfect for this book. I love the layouts and the flow of the story with how it all comes together and I really dig the character designs that have a strong lived-in look to them that really delights. I'm excited to see where this property goes. Read Full Review

    There has been a lot of world building and character development in the last two issues which is starting to make the series drag a little, but it looks like the narrative is moving towards a bit more action and tension, which Im grateful for because theres a lot to like in this series. That said, and if youll pardon the pun, this series does need a bit of life injected into it to keep it interesting moving forwards. Read Full Review

    A good follow-up issue. The last issue was set up, this issue is more development. Lots of character work on various people, more world-building with this Dead Day in effect, and we also learn more about the situation of Mel's dead boyfriend Jeremy was caught in and how it resulted in his death, and why he is seeking revenge. Nothing really major has happened yet, but it still finessed with great dialogue by Parrott, a unique take on zombies, great art by Pritchett, and is another good issue following up the debut of Dead Day.
