    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Aug 24, 2009

    My final reason for enjoying this book is the knowledge that it will apparently bridge the gap between the first movie 28 Days Later, and its sequel, 28 Months Later which is dramatic territory thats ripe for exploration. Were already given some hints as to where the story might lead (theres mention of the US-led operation to repopulate London that we saw in 28 Months Later), and there are also a few clues as to how Selena got from where she was at the end of the first movie to where she is at the start of this mini-series. Its a plot thread that I cant wait to see explored further in future issues, but I have to confess that Im just as interested in where the present day section of the story leads. This suggests that writer Michael Alan Nelson has done a good job in balancing the storys links to the original movies with the need to provide new, original content. And thats probably the best compliment that I can pay to a licensed comic like this one. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Aug 25, 2009

    That does assume, of course, that those readers are coming to the title with prior knowledge of one or both films. Anyone who approaches the series fresh might end up in serious trouble, because there's very little given to the set-up, and frequent references to events that don't have enough context without the movies. It's fair to say that Boom! is allowing the book to play to its audience, but if you were thinking of going into it cold, then it's unlikely that the first issue will prove as a satisfying introduction to the world of "28 Days Later" -- the rest of us, though, can expect to be quickly hooked by it.

    Major Spoilers - Marlowe Lewis Aug 26, 2009

    I have absolutely no knowledge of how this story is going to finish but I just hope that Selena doesn't end up sharing the same fate as Ripley. I want her to be still be around for the as yet untold '28 Months Later' tale. This absorbing Boom! Studios book gets three stars from me. Read Full Review
