In THE LAST ZOMBIE, a graphic novel by Brian Keene with art by Joseph Wight, what’s left of the U.S. government following a zombie apocalypse maintains two research centers, one in Colorado, and one on the east coast. When the east coast facility goes dark, a scientist sets out with two squads of soldiers to travel the ruins of America and find out what happened. This novel, plus its followup, THE LAST ZOMBIE: INFERNO, chronicles their mission east and encounters with survivors, some friendly, many not. Keene’s on top of his game with this. The narrative is crisp and clear, the characters individual and interesting, the dialogue realistic. Wight’s art, meanwhile, is FANTASTIC.
