Dead Day #1

Here is another book that I snatched today with there being no Marvel books released. This was from a comic company called Aftershock, a company I legit never heard of before.
Dead Day #1 is a new take on the zombie story and I have to say it was interesting. It was kind of like The Walking Dead meets The Purge meets This is Us.
In this issue, we are introduced to Dead Day, a new holiday where deceased people return from the grave from sunset to sunrise and return to see their loved ones. However, there was a distinct mood of the story that makes you feel as if there is more nefarious activities were going to happen than just a happy family reunion.
The also show us that some people are called Revivalists and have something to do with the whole Dead Day stuff, though it was, as of yet, unclear exactly what was their role. They are referred to as cultists at one point of the comic, so clearly, there is more to come on this.
This is another of those type of futuristic books that may lead to a dystopian future. There have been a bunch of those recently. Perhaps it is just too much with the way the world is right now, but I was interested in what was happening. I liked the characters I was being introduced to, but they did seem pretty typical.
This one I am torn on. I might like to see a few more issues to see where this is going. I do like the set up .
