Why Comics ARE Literature Part 3

Okay, so zombies may not be everyone’s thing. However, The Walking Dead is so much more than a zombie comic. Especially when it comes to the first volume, “Days Gone Bye,” which collects issues one through six of this monthly series from Image Comics.

Written by Robert Kirkman (who writes the campy Marvel Zombies) and drawn by Tony Moore (who works on Fear Agent and The Exterminators), this is a story you don’t want to miss. You would think that, being a zombie comic, it would be filled with blood and guts. However, there is so much more. A genuine tale of humanity and survival in unforgiving times, the story ends with a huge exclaimation point that should not be missed. That is why we gave Walking Dead: Days Gone Bye five out of five stars.

Quite possibly the most famous Batman story out there, Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is a gritty and violent tale of a man wrestling with inner demons and putting a ruined city back in order. Ten years after Bruce Wayne hung up his cape, Gotham has fallen to pieces. It is overrun by a gang of killers and, as Bruce walks home one night, they wake up something they wish they never had. The Batman returns with a vengence that can only be satisfied when “his” city is safe once again. Taking on gangs, the Joker, a new police comissioner, and even Superman, nothing will stand in his way.

Masterfully written by Frank Miller (300, Sin City, Ronin, and the contraversial All-Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder), we are invited into the mind of a tortured soul who relives watching his parents die every day. This is 5/5 star material that you don’t want to miss folks.
