3.0 out of 5 stars The First Series 8 Jun. 2013
By ReddStealth - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Raise the Dead, the hardcover, was an ok read. The art wasn't bad at all and neither was the story. It started off interestingly enough. The characters were suspenseful and so was their situation. It has blood and gore if that is what you want. I would say, you should give it a try. I even bought the second series.

This might, at first glance, seem like a pretty typical zombie story, and in many ways it is. You have a diverse cast of characters, thrown together by circumstance, who have to work together to stay alive when a zombie outbreak comes crashing down around them, and as always, some are out for themselves, some are out for each other, and they have to reconcile their differing motivations, ideas, and attitudes. Some you'd want on your side, others you'd just want to go away. It's a story you see all the time with zombies, or any disaster story. Seriously, most zombie movies or books (or what have you) tell a similar tale.

But this one does it well. You already know the story, but it takes you places you don't expect, as a good story does.

The art is very well-done, and some back story is provided to show how the characters got to be where they are and what hardships they have already experienced in their recent lives. This inevitably makes you root for some characters and hate others, and lets you know which characters are going to make things more difficult and which ones deserve to make it through this, and of course, deserving to survive doesn't have anything to do with whether or not they will.

Good story, good characters, and this stand alone graphic novel is worth a look. Although the story, again, looks like so many others, it's still different on many levels and deserves the attention of zombie fans everywhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars feels unfinished 21 April 2009
By A. Nonymous - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is modern zombie all the way. Well written, great art and even better covers. The only problem I really had with it is that you get to a point, turn the page and you're wondering where the rest of the book is. It's a good enough book where you feel disapointed that it ended. But it feels like only half the story. it's worth it though.
5.0 out of 5 stars When it falls apart, it falls apart quickly. 11 Dec. 2009

Strangers. zombies. Theories as to why the dead are coming back. Little bipeal rabbits trying to find somewhere to run and hide. This seems to be the way of things when zombies start to take over the landscape and, really, what else could happen? In this book you get a few other things added in, answering that question. From animals that bite to rocks falling from the sky, everything is here.

At first I wasn't sure about this buy because it seemed like it was going to be the same thing I've seen. Then the art caught my eye and the atmosphere sunk in and i kept thinking how great this could be. The whole story is told in tight spaces, giving the book an aire of clausterphobia, and the zombies are shown in bits and pieces - the way a zombie would be expected to be. The people in the story are all different, too, and their stories are interwoven into a tale that makes the chase toward the ending a lovely piece of walking doom. It reminds the reader what loss would look like through the eyes of a child, what would happen if you try to help a little too much, and what can occur if you happen to try and help someone with a little zombie lovebite. I personally found this to be an exciting thing, too, and I thought it had some compelling ideas added into the fray. From little rats and monkeys to a man that may or may not be the reason everything happened, we see a group of people that we know are more than "in trouble." In fact, in looking for safety, they may have found doom.

If you like your zombie tales modern then you may find this one good. I personally like the fact that that you don't know alot about the virus from the beginning and that everything you think about it could be right or wrong - and that this doesn't really matter in the end. What matters is that there are lots of teeth and tight hallways and this feeling that the end is coming for everyone. The "who" in survival, that's what its all about to me. The only downside to the book is that it is a little bit of a short read, but the art and the possibilities that are here as to what caused it all to come down made up for that to me.
Check out some of the pictures and check out that cover work. If you find it appealing then enjoy the teeth that run amok as one pocket of people tries to play "run, rabiit, run" with more undead than they can count.
Good stuff in my opinion.
5.0 out of 5 stars Superb graphics, tight little story 2 Nov. 2008
By Patrick S. Dorazio - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Raise the dead combines four issues of a tale with several people trying to survive at the outset of the zombie apocalypse. Nothing new there but this efficient little story does not hold back as it rushes forward with the main characters, who all start out stuck in a diner as the world is coming down around them. We get to see flash backs to what brought them together, providing each with a bit more depth and allows you to care or dislike each character even more.
We are given to believe that a meteor shower is the root cause of this raising of the dead but one of our characters is involved with a lab that is working to find ways to regenerate dead tissue, cure diseases, etc. As zombie fans we can guess where this leads to, though there are some surprises. You gotta love the attack of the undead lab rats.

But before we get too far, this brief tale is over. No one is safe here as zombies tear into the characters left and right. Though the story is nothing new in the zombie realm the glowing red eyes of the undead and wonderful artwork make this one a noteable graphic novel in the zombie realm.
