    Don't know why it's called Aftermathis is a prequel story to 28 Days Later.

    According to the back page: 28 Days Later: The Aftermath begins before the hot movie - and ends with a shocking revelation that leads into the events of the sequel, 28 Weeks Later.I loved the movie and was excited to read this graphic novel. The Story was good and the illustrations were awesome. If you liked the movie, you will enjoy this graphic novel. ~April

    Like most of the readers of this graphic novel, I purchased this thin tome as an admirer of the film franchise. 18 Bucks LaterI found myself tottering on the proverbial fence, exclaiming "Ghaaagh!" Scripted by horror comic maestro Steve Niles and brought to life by three talented illustrators, 28 Days Later: The Aftermath is a collection of four short stories centered around the initial outbreak from the first film. Stage 1: Development reveals the origins of the Rage Virus in which two unhinged [...]

    I liked that it explained how the Rage virus was created (trying to nullify the rage emotion with a pill that is then thought to be able to be distributed on a massive scale in airborne form, which turns to Ebola: Surprise, not a good idea to mess with Ebola!) and Act 1 dove tails into the conclusion of Act 4. But "a shocking revelation that leads into the events of the sequel, 28 Weeks Later" is a lie. There's no revelations outside of how the virus was created and what happens to the researche [...]

    28 Days Later The Aftermath is a slightly misleading title since this book starts as a prequel too, then runs concurrently to the first movie. There are 4 chapters with the final one acting as a sort of prequel to the second film. The great writing of Steve Niles alone should please most readers, but the 3 wonderful artist Calero, Olmos, and Jones also did a great job on this. Some reviewers seemed put off by this being a graphic novel which is weird since it's pretty obviously what it is. My on [...]

    I'd like to choose 2.5 stars. It's nothing earthshattering, nor is it original, nor does it tell us much of interest at all. The book does demonstrate why it's a bad idea to switch from artist to artist in the middle of a comic. The appearance of one of the main characters changes so drastically that he doesn't even look like he's related to himself--if that makes any sense. Also, I'm not a big fan of the illustration style that resembles colorized photographs.

    2.5 our of 5. Although it touches upon and explains why and how the virus from the film series even got started, which I thought was interesting and well done, the rest of the book its self bas very little self awareness seemingly. The first 3 sections of the book are 3 different stories: the first about the scientists that created he virus and why, the second about a family who feel the effects of the virus in the early stages of the outbreak, and the third about a guy who is surviving in londo [...]

    After reading the other 28 Day comics, the ending on this one literally made me scream in frustration.It was interesting and filled in gaps, however, by the time I was done reading the last word, I thought "How utterly pointless in a nihilistic sense. Almost like reading a Crossed story.".It is worth reading if you're into the whole series, though. The art is good. The writing is good. In my opinion, it just didn't hold a candle to the rest of the series with Selena.

    Alison
    Decent vignettes and story development, but rushed ending. Incredibly rushed. Also the storytelling feels disjointed, there were times I thought entire panels or pages were missing within one vignette.

    This comic was made to fill in the gaps between the movie "28 Days Later" and its sequel "28 Weeks Later." And to fill in some of the backstory in to what caused these events. The story is told in four parts beginning with two scientists working on their latest project on-a drug that will stop uncontrollable rage. But something goes horribly wrong. The virus mutateso an uncontrollable rage virus affecting everyone bitten by the creature as it rampages through London. It soon spreads throughout t [...]

    Clive and Warren are scientists trying to find a cure for the rising violence among men. When their experiment to cure violence actually creates a rage violence, the virus quickly gets out of hand. The danger spreads quickly and soon all of London was infected with the survivors fighting against plagues of killer zombies known as the Infected. The danger might not be over and stopping the Infected could prove impossible.Written by Steve Niles and illustrated by Dennis Calero, Diego Olmos, Ken Br [...]

    This graphic novel is NOT necessary to understand anything that's going on in the second movie. For that matter, seeing the second movie first kind of illuminates the events of the graphic novel. No characters cross from the first movie to the graphic novel, and no characters cross from the graphic novel to the second movie.[return][return]So what IS the graphic novel about? FIrst, it explains how the rage virus was created and why. We learn what went wrong, and all of this leads into the beginn [...]

    This short, 112-page-long graphic novel is a movie companion of sorts to 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later. It takes place behind the scenes of the creation and outbreak of the rage virus that permeates the story of the movies. Again, this was found in my perusal of the graphic novel section of the library.The novel is set up in four distinct sections which focus on the Stages of the Rage virus: Development, Outbreak, Decimation, and Quarantine. Each section of the novel focuses on little vignett [...]

    I'm a big fan of '28 Days Later' and I bought this a couple of hours after seeing '28 Weeks Later' as it sounded like some interesting background material. Firstly, I should point out that it's a graphic novel, so if you're not a fan of the genre and/or the films then I would look elsewhere.The book is divided into four short stories, charting the progress of the outbreak seen in the first film. Each one is entertaining enough in its own right, but none of them have enough time to go into much c [...]

    Inspirada en la peli 28 días después, Steve Niles recuenta la historia con unos pequeños cambios y agregandole unos detalles.El primer capítulo es el mejor, a nivel de escritura y narración además de contar con las ilustraciones de Dennis Calero, cabe destacar el mejor de los 3 presentes en la novela.El resto es realmente insipído e innecesario, más las ilustraciones de Diego Olomos son realmente decepcionantes, infantiles si se quiere.Por suerte para el cuarto y ultimo capitulo regresa [...]

    A nauseating stench fills the air as the soulless creatures burst through the door. As I sit, helpless, they shamble closer and closer, their unspeakable faces twisted into hideous grins, their withered hands groping the air for their next victim. With mounting horror, I feel my own blood boiling with rage, the madness having taken over my own nervous system. Should I toss myself off the nearest precipice for the good of humanity, or should I join in the depravity?“28 Days Later”? Nope, just [...]

    Read this in a couple of hours after picking it up on a whim from the library. It's about as average as it gets. That seems harsh, actually, because I did enjoy it in a "don't analyse it too hard" kind of way. It's just a zombie comic, fer Chrissakes! Some of the art is really good, especially in the first and third stories, but the writing throughout is incredibly slight even for a comic book. The overlapping characters work quite well, but overall the book is too short to really develop them i [...]

    Rick
    This was really more a comic book than a graphic novel. I can't say it really gave me any more insight into the story or that I found myself engrossed into the story any more. I was really interested in that some people said how engrossing it was and how it offered some really great insights into the period between the virus outbreak and the start of the movie. Overall it's pretty weak which is a shame because, as others have said it does have some really good art work and great story potential. [...]

    So it's a graphic novel with story offshoots from the first movie. I guess it's hard to live up to such an excellent flick, but I was expecting something more. I felt I read the stories too quickly, they are more like "snapshots". Also, I had a problem with the fact they used different artisits. The characters reappear in the stories, but they look different. If "28 Days Later" the movie is the main course, then this graphic novel would be the cookie you might have as a pre-bed snack.

    Mark Desrosiers
    No, you don't have to read this in order to comprehend the gap between the two flicks. But if you're also addicted to "the infected", it'll sate you fine.I too was perplexed by Nat Jones's execution of Stage 3: Decimation, which probably explains why Niles's "shooting script" for that one is reproduced at the end (a very fun read). And Dennis Calero's two contributions here are nearly perfect.Yet I still prefer the movies.

    A decidedly average "bridge" between the two fantastic films, 28 Days Later: The Aftermath fleshes out a few details, but adds very little of interest. To be honest, I was expecting much more from the creator of 30 Days of Night, and the artwork was middling to poor (especially in the last part where I found it difficult to tell who was who).1.5 stars. For massive fans of the films only.

    Andrea
    Eh. It was ok. This isn't as good as the other 28 days later comics, but it is an interesting tie-in for fans of the movies. The art was top notch. I just found the story to be a bit superficial. The other comics in this series crammed so much more depth into the about the same amount of pages. Not a bad comic at all, just not the best. I'd suggest this one to anyone who is a fan of the series as a whole, but I don't think this work really stands out by itself.

    Mark
    Really didn't add anything new to the original storyline from the film "28 Days". The plague was mixed with the Ebola virus to make it more potent and spread fasterey lost control of it and it spread throughout England. The book is comprised of four short stories. The first three were average at best but the last story was not good at all.This is recommended for die hard fans only.

    Jordan Rowe
    If you loved 28 Days Later, and 28 Weeks Later which I am. This book was a huge help explaining the time between 28 Days and 28 Weeks after the outbreak, how it started, and some events in between.It's a great SUPPLEMENT for the movies. If you've never seen the movies, don't buy this, it's good but wouldn't make sense.

    Lakshana
    Its incredibly fast pace is its downfall, leading to poor story and character development. This should not have been a one shot, but rather a set of issues, like the other 28 Days Later comics. I don't know what this story tried to prove other than encompassing the same morals of the myth of Prometheus, which really only came into play in the last few pages.

    28 Days Later The Aftermath - Bridging the gap between the original film and its sequel, 28 Days Later: The Aftermath tells the story of one of the last bands of un-infected humans in London, desperately trying to survive in the midst of the Rage virus. Will their salvation come in the form of a rescue, or an over-zealous American army determined to eliminate anything left alive?

    Dean
    Fans of Danny Boyle's Zobmie flick ("28 Days Later") may find this book somewhat interesting as it delves into the origins of the Rage virus and chronicles certain events that occur during the first month of the outbreak. Other than that this book is a serviceable post-apoc Zombie tale with very little that we haven't seen before. Kudos to Nat Jones and Dennis Calero for great artwork.

    Emilio
    Comic decente para echar un rato pero sin mucho que aportar.Se centra en la historia previa a la película de 28 días. Son 4 historias autoconclusivas situadas en la línea temporal del outbreak, entretenidas pero sin mucha chicha. Están bien narradas, el dibujo es correcto y el guión potable. Si eres fan de los zombis tienes para un rato entretenido pero no es ninguna joya.

    Jacquelyn
    Well that escalated quickly. Very, very short graphic novel, more like two single comics, following several people through the initial outbreak from 28 Days Later. Maybe I don't remember the movie that well, but this story didn't really seem to have much of a point besides tying in to the film's premise. Not really worth it.

    Thomas Andrikus
    I was expecting something closer to the movie adaptation, but alas, I was disappointed. Spanning over a total of less than 100 page, this graphic novel is packed with action, though the "human" side of the survivors, as is apparent in the movie, is nigh nonexistent in this book.It has a fabulous illustration thoughI can give it that much.
