Collecting the 3-volume Daybreak series Ralph put out on Bodega, this hardcover brings into sharp focus the bleak core of zombie narratives playng on fears of ruthless apathy as a spreading social condition. Whether the "zombifying" component of the metaphor here is drug addiction, depression, emotional isolation of a digital age or some other virulent seperator, Ralph effectively constructs a plot where the increasingly hard fight for your best friend, yourself and all love you've ever known becomes an ever more futile struggle. Simply tragic. -EF
