A few years ago, BOOM! was releasing a “28 Days Later” comic that acted as a bridge between the original movie and its sequel. It didn’t get a lot of buzz unfortunately, dealing with a zombie unsaturated market and some future show-turned-book called “the Dead that Walk,” or something along those lines. Yet, it never the less remains one of my favorite books of the last few years, and I’ll never forget the first time I read the scene with “the Mannequin.” Those of you who read the book certainly know what I’m talking about.
It’s on that note that I bring up this book called “Orphans,” written by the same author, Michael Alan Nelson, with the express duty of putting it on your radar. The first issue of the mini-series about a team of six orphans who are molded into superspies and then snuck into the world is in stores next week, so we’re giving you a look into the future with April’s 3rd issue.
Look for an interview with Michael on this site soon. In the mean time, enjoy the covers for “Orphans” #3 and the solicit below.
