Zombie outbreak or government conspiracy or perhaps both? It seems to be both. G.I. Zombie is on the ground trying to retake a town that has turned against him. Was this outbreak natural or is there something more sinister going on? More than just government conspiracies are running amock in this story.
The New 52! Star Spangled War Stories G.I. Zombie “Exit Strategy” (Issue #4) by Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, Scott Hampton, and Rob Leigh
Genre: Comic Book/Single Issue/Horror/Mystery
Release Date: November 2014

On My Shelf: Yes (at least for now)
I picked up this issue because, well, by now you probably already know I can’t say no to anything with zombies. If you’re new to this blog: Hi, I’m Ashley, and I can’t say no to zombies.
Plus, I really liked this cover.
And, it turns out that I quite enjoyed this story. I didn’t love it, but I liked it just fine. However, I do think that jumping in at issue #4 was a bit detrimental to my enjoyment. I understood what was generally happening in the story but was definitely at a loss when trying to figure out what the grand scheme of the thing was.
I guess it’s a bit good that I didn’t get too attached, though, as it looks like this series was quickly cancelled after only one volume. I think I will still try to get my hands on and read the bind-up of these comics, but I’m not in any hurry to do so.
It seemed like this series had a great deal of potential, but that it never really delved into it. I’m keeping this single issue on my shelf for now, but I’m not sure for how long. It was good and kept my attention, but I didn’t really connect with many of the characters. Still, I did like all the females present in this issue! That’s always a plus for me.
Overall, I don’t really recommend nor don’t recommend this issue/series. It was pretty good, so use your own judgement based on what you like to decide if you want to seek this one out or not.
