The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of ’68 JUNGLE JIM #1 from Image Comics. Mark Kidwell writes, and Jeff Zornow draws.
Curliss is one hell of a soldier. He fights like a madman, and he’s extremely loyal. He’s got a job to finish, and he’s not going to let Sarge down. The problem is what happens to the NVAs he kills. There’s also a nice French girl working in a mission out there, and she’s about to run into some trouble.
This is certainly an interesting variation on a Vietnam War story. But for me the zombie thing is secondary. I really like Curliss, and I’m looking forward to “meeting” Sarge. I’m also curious about the role Manon will play in this. This is a really nice beginning to what could be a great story, and I really want to see how it unfolds.
This one is worth picking up whether you like zombie stories or not. I know I’m a sucker for good characterization, but there’s a lot of potential in this title. Give these guys your money J
’68 JUNGLE JIM #1 is available now at your FLCS or by order at imagecomics.com.
