Zombie Rising STORY:- 3.5/10

Zombie Rising is a graphic novel tie-in to India’s first zombie origins feature film Rise of the Zombie (starring Luke Kenny & Benjamin Gilani); written by Devaki Singh. From Chariot Comics & Luminosity Pictures comes a dark, gory, and terrifying zombie horror-thriller comic Zombie Rising, which serves as a prelude to the movie.

SUBJECT:-

In this graphic novel, Manav and the rest of the gang, who had just started unearthing the strange happenings in Neolife Pharmaceuticals, are drawn deep into the plot. They also discover the real story behind the disappearance of their friend Sujoy; a senior scientist at Neolife. And then of course…Zombies!

PACE:

The story starts off perfectly, and the buildup was decent too. But as we progress towards the final act, it becomes hard to grasp what the writer wants to convey. It gets confusing and the pacing picks up abruptly and the storytelling gets very confusing.

GRIP:

The beginning is strong, the mid-act is decent too, but towards the end, it disintegrates into absolute nothingness. The plot is told in a manner, difficult for the reader to understand. It’s not complicated or anything, just a case of bad storytelling and paneling because of which, the only people who could understand the plot with full clarity would be the creator themselves.

IMPACT:

At the start, we get to witness the tragedy of Bahadur and it was a very emotional, heart-touching, yet, gory beginning. And although he is not the protagonist, and there are plenty of other key characters in the story, but they leave no impact whatsoever because none of them have got much space for character development. Too many characters, uneven pacing, unskilled storytelling, and a not-so-punch-packing ending make it a bad read. Thankfully, appropriate localization has been done, because the zombie is basically a western concept. But no matter how good of a start you have, how the story carries and concludes matters just as much, if not more. After reading this, I was definitely not excited for the movie “Rise of the Zombies”,  which acts as a sequel to this comic book.

DIALOGUES:

Not many heavy words were used and lucidity was maintained in the language. However, towards the end, the writer failed to express the story properly. If needed, more dialogues and narration could have been used to tell the story with more clarity, because after all, it’s the ending that dictates the overall reading experience.

Zombie Rising ARTWORK & COLORS:- 3.5/10

The art and colors were subpar, to begin with, and unfortunately, it gets worse towards the end just like the story did. The anatomical errors, unprofessional inking, and inconsistent coloring worsened the overall experience. A dark tone and theme were used, that go somewhat well with the story, but not well enough to call it well done.

LETTERS, GRAPHIC DESIGN & OVERALL QUALITY:- 06/10

The paper quality of the book was thick and glossy and of very high quality. The printing was good too. But the thickness of the cover was surprisingly lesser than the inside pages, and it’s usually the other way around. The small dimensions of the book (A5 size) are not the best format for the optimum reading experience.

The letterer and graphic designer have done a good enough job compared to the other departments. It was decent and matches the theme of the story, although nothing too unique or outstanding was noticed.
