Review: Ghoul Scouts: Night of the Unliving Undead #2

ALE_ghoulscouts_02A copyAfter finding their camp deserted and destroyed, the scouts have to fight their way through more zombies to reach Full Moon Hollow. But will anyone there be able to help them solve the mystery behind this zombie outbreak and save the town? Is there even a town left to save?

Ghoul Scouts: Night of the Unliving Undead, is half Scooby-Doo, and half The Walking Dead. In this second issue, the kids manage to find what remains of the campsite, before deciding to take a moonlight stroll into town. This leads to the discovery that zombies have made their way into town. As they run from house to house in search of an adult, they try to survive the zombie townsfolk. It’s a solid blending of comics and is a zombie comic for the younger set.

The mix of improvised and little random weapons manages to throw some humor into the art. While the town seems to have some of the creep factor of the forest, there is something about the place that is small-town.  If the town wasn’t infested with zombies, it would probably be a nice place to live. The houses do look pretty similar as the kids defend themselves but there’s a nice flowing manner about it all.
