Rating: 4.5/5

We meet Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong as they travel through the Sierra Nevada mountains just one faltering step ahead of zombie hordes and one giant leap behind the plane flying through the sky that set them on their journey of discovery.

Can’t get enough Rot & Ruin even though the series is over? Then you have to check out the comic book series! It’s just as good as the books, and it takes place in between the main events of the book series.

Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong are on the move while trying to follow the jet they saw…and along the way they encounter another group of people. Just like in the series we find that humans are much harder to trust than the zombies. Zombies are constant, they’re motives don’t change…but humans have a way of surprising you. They can make an already bleak existence utter hell. The gain meets one such group under the leadership of Farmer John, who wants to rebuild the world…and he has a very rudimentary way to do it. I’m definitely loving this plot, and I enjoy getting to see even more survivors.

The artwork is not necessarily my favorite but I actually really like the feel of it. The sketchy lines and really bold outlines really fit the feel of the story.

I can’t wait to read even more of this series. This is actually a series I feel is worth buying the individual issues of. Especially since the alternate covers are the zombie cards. So needless to say if you love Jonathan Maberry’s books then go get this comic series. You won’t be disappointed!

4.5 Stars
