Title: The Colonized
Writer: Chris Ryall
Artist: Drew Moss
Year Published: 2013
Synopsis: In this all-new graphic novel, a spaceship crashes into a separatist camp and manages to reanimate the dead as well! It's aliens vs. zombies vs. militiamen in a carnage-filled tale!
Review: This comic is a really fun mash-up. This story takes place in a community founded on the idea of no government. And unfortunately, both aliens and zombies are out and about in this small community. Not only are the dead people of the community now walking the streets, but the dead animals have turned to zombies as well and are on the lookout for fresh flesh.
There are a few references to classic zombie movies that I got and I'm sure there were more than I didn't.
There's political commentary deeper than I expected as well with some discussions of the role of government as well as environmental impacts of the human race on this planet.
The artwork is colorful and beautifully gory at times. The zombie animals are the best.
I give this graphic novel a 3/5. It was interesting, but I didn't find it amazing. I think zombie and alien invasion buffs will enjoy this.
