    I have to say, I am always a tad weary when it comes to zombie anything because I have certain ideas and thoughts that I somehow wish to see respected in a zombie story. The where to's and why for's need to make sense, and in Z Nation I am pleased to say, they do. Pick it up and judge for yourself. I am definitely picking up the next issue that is coming out.

    The art by Edu Menna manages to do the same thing the story does. It manages to capture the struggle of the survivors, as they cope with their existence bringing the visuals of the show to the comic page. The first issue brings a decent amount of gore, flowing action, and violence. There's also some inspired melee weapon redesigns that merge raw killing power, with something a little more medieval.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 12, 2017

    Z Nation #1 was a strong start to this new six-issue miniseries. It captured everything you love about Z Nation through these new and familiar faces. Expect the unexpected and cling to no one as this world knows how to chew you up and spit you back out. And this is only one year in, so if there was any way to generate hype for what the next five issues have to offer they nailed it. Read Full Review

    I am excited about this series and I cant wait to find out what happens in the next issue. If you are a fan of all things zombie related then I would definitely suggest picking this up. Because of the way the story is composed, it is just as applicable to fans or those new to the Syfy TV series in which the story is set. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - David Lee Martins Apr 13, 2017

    This title gets a 3.5 out of 5 rating from me. Being the first issue, it contains the usual setup and exposition, but also a fair amount of quality zombie action. It is a fun book to read with outstanding art. Fans of the television show and zombie themed entertainment should get enjoyment from this. Read Full Review

    Z Nation deserves respect for finding the lighter side of the zombie apocalypse, and traipsing through a dull genre like a happy kid through a fussy flower bed. But seriously, after this"no more zombie comics. Thank you. Read Full Review
