Daybreak by Brian RalphDaybreak is a comic that uses the medium in a new, interesting way- and the end result is a story that is finely tuned with emotion. As mentioned on the back cover, the entire story is told to you from a first person perspective. You are introduced to the main character, a one-armed man who is fighting for survival in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited with zombies. He is your guide through a gorgeously drawn wasteland, and over time through his struggles and good humor, he becomes our friend.By having the viewer as an active participant in the action, a strong atmosphere is created that grips the reader until the very last page. We become emotionally invested in the story’s outcome and are curious to see what fate lies in store for us and our one-armed pal.Daybreak isn’t like anything else in the ‘zombie’ genre of fiction. It is a sweet and heartfelt look at friendship during times of survival, and the zombies are just the element of distress that add to the story’s overall landscape. This is a must-read comic for anyone who pines for a fresh look at visual storytelling.
