If you like horror comics, don’t miss out on the Awakening Omnibus, a softcover (our first!) collection of Vols. 1 and 2 of the haunting title, created by Nick Tapalansky and Alex Eckman-Lawn. ComicMonsters.com recently posted their review of the 320-page tome. Reviewer Stephanie Stamblin G writes:
This book starts at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse and walks the reader through the townsfolk’s efforts to ignore, prevent, take advantage of, and finally to accept the crisis. Anyone tired of the “28 Days Later” style of skipping through the beginning details will find Awakening Omnibus a refreshing change. There are also several subplots within the main story that stay strong and prevent the zombie apocalypse from getting stale. With one of the main protagonists a private investigator and another that is a scientist, this book really reads more like a mystery than a horror story. The story’s writer, Tapalansky, had set out to create a different sort of zombie book and has been successful in that endeavor. Eckman-Lawn’s art is dark, moody, and occasionally suitable for framing. There are some seriously stunning panels here that have the perfect blend of grit and polish, particularly in the earlier chapters.
