The trouble with a line-wide event is that some books won’t fit into it well, and this is an example. G.I. Zombie has had two issues out. Here the writers and artist present what they suggest might happen to the series in five years. There hasn’t been enough time and story for me to know the characters well and/or care about them for that to work for me. Scott Hampton’s art looks great, and there’s lots of action, but connecting with all the new situations emotionally is too big a stretch. The final scene of the male and female lead characters saying goodbye comes closest to working, but it ends abruptly as if even the writers had a hard time with it. We’ve hardly said hello, it’s too soon for goodbye. I’ll put this comic aside and look for more of the regular story.
