Review: Awakening by Nick Tapalansky

The once peaceful city of Park Falls has been tainted by a series of gruesome murders and missing persons. Cynthia Ford, known as the town crazy, finds retired police detective Derrick Peters and relates to him her belief about what’s going on in town. Her explanation — Zombies! Unable to ignore Cynthia’s information, though not sharing her beliefs, Derrick and others in the town explore the mystery as weeks turn to months and the death toll rises. Follow the first half of Park Falls’ year-long struggle for answers in this collected edition of the first five issues of the ASP existential horror series.

i was not really impressed by this book. Overall, the storyline was okay. Nothing really original. I liked the fact that the whole thing starts slowly with just a couple of crimes before turning into something bigger. It didn’t seem like the story was going anywhere, which botter me alot at the end. i finished it and all i have in mind was : this is it? My biggest problem was the illustrations. i really was not a big fan of the art. It felt so weird. It made it also really hard to follow the characters because i had a hard time telling who was who. Not that it would’ve help me to love them more, the characters were extremely flat and even boring. 

there’s nothing more to say really, it was okay, but nothing incredible.
