Imagine your watching one of those great horror movies that takes place in space. Now translate that movie into comic book pages and you have the artwork for Planet of the Living Dead. This is an amazing looking black and white book, that just floored my eye balls page after page. Great environment design, great characters and of course some GORE-Geous zombies just make this one killer book. Pun totally intended!
With the horror line at Antarctic you never know if your going to get a fun book or a serious one. In all honesty I thought this was going to be one of the fun ones, but I am so glad it wasn’t. The story is hard-edged balls to the wall from start to finish. You get your typical cast of characters in that you now who you want to do because they deserve it. Being based mostly off the dialogue the pacing is near perfect and it’s just damn good survival fun, but in outer space.
A great take on horrific future leads way to what transpires in these pages. The team of Wight and Hutchison seem to be right at home working on this title. You get great art and a very solid story from start to finish that I just want more and I want it now. Good thing Return to the Planet of the Living Dead is coming because I can not wait to see how this plays out.
