no_name_'s '68 #2 - Better Run Through The Jungle; Sissy review

So Many Brains!

What happens when casualties of the Vietnam War come back from the dead?

The Good

It's a very interesting concept, the idea of having four ongoing stories happen at once. I think that's the thing I liked the most about this issue is that the creative team told the story of four separate groups of people, each of them with a different agenda in war-torn Vietnam during the Vietnam War in 1968. Not only is this comic a zombie-horror comic, it's also a suspense story. '68 is definitely a page turner, and you don't really know what's going to happen next. The story's pacing is good, and even though the reader takes in four different, ongoing stories at once, it is not altogether confusing. It's easy for the reader to follow and understand exactly how the fates of these four groups are ultimately bound to one another.

The Bad

I think you have to really like horror/zombie comics/genre to appreciate this comic. There's a lot of gratuitous violence and gore, but that doesn't necessarily make it bad- in fact, I felt it was appropriate for the story the creative team was trying to tell. The fact of the matter is, this just wasn't for me; but just because it wasn't for me, doesn't mean it was bad.

The Verdict

A well constructed, well organized second issue to a four part mini series. If you're into zombies and Vietnam war stories, then this is bound to be your cup of tea- even if it wasn't for me.
