I think I may have been spoiled by “The Walking Dead.”
I feel like a lot of the zombie-centric graphic novels I read these days just don’t feel like good story-telling to me, and I wonder if that is due at least partly to the fact that I have now read over 70 issues of Robert Kirkman’s amazing comic series that just seems to put all others (or at least, the others about the undead) to shame.
Upon further review, I find this to be the case only in my head: to date, I have reviewed 14 graphic novels for this site; seven of them have scored in the “top two” categories, and seven of them have scored in the “bottom two” categories. Three out of the four most recent graphic novels I have reviewed have garnered a Total Score of 4 or lower, so maybe it’s just my recent memory that I’m drawing from here.
