Review: Ghoul Scouts: Night of the Unliving Undead #1
Something stranger than usual haunts Full Moon Hollow, Paranormal Capital of the World. Adults either can’t see it, can’t remember it, or go crazy from it. So when zombies attack during the Hemlock County Scouting Jamboree, only a group of misfits can save the Hollow. Be prepared. Be very prepared.
In Ghoul Scouts: Night of the Unliving Undead, writer Steve Bryant manages to craft a simple, funny, and kid friendly zombie comic. The younger characters manage to be oddly lucky as they first encounter the undead. They even manage to find a few companions in two remaining Gaia scouts. The comic does make you wonder why so many strange things happen in Full Moon Hollow? And that includes why there are no adults… or at least no adults yet.
The art by Jason Millet and Mark Stegbauer is straight forward, and clean. It uses minimal violence (so far), as the ragtag group of young survivors try to figure out what is going on. That manages to bolster the kid friendly atmosphere of this comic.
