    I read this last year prior to the release of the motion picture release of the same name I've seen the current motion picture since as well as Omega Man and The Last Man on earth and I must say that none of these even come close to the originalThis book takes a great twist on the traditional vampire story that I won't spoil and although it is not a zombie story it serves as inspiration for modern zombie horror by placing a single character in a position where he is constantly trying to flee from a horde of monsters that are out to consume himuick but engaging read with a very non traditional ending I highly recommend this especially if you enjoy zombies andor vampires

    This adaptation by Steve Niles with art by the great Elman Brown is a real pleasure The story flows the illustrations deserve an award and the emotional impact is intense This is something uite special

    Like many callow teens my interest in vampires didn’t begin with Dracula Neither the initial Bram Stoker novel that started it all nor did the Christopher Lee silver screen adaptations spark my interest Retrospectively cringe it was the Underworld series of the the early 00’s began my interest in the blood drinking fanged immortals of the night Yes the series is trash Yes its dumb I know better now but at the time I found its stylizations unforgettable Fast forward years and an ever growing comic collection I was delighted through a casual rifling to dig up this vampire centric comic Although struck by the relevance of hunkering down in our age of world wide lockdowns my initial joy gave way to ennui due to uality which steadily wanedDespite the typified horror characteristic of vampires and zombies its boobery here than anything And since the protagonist has a working car and a perfectly stocked supermarket in the area this is hardly a survival themed thriller In fact with a daily trip for groceries during the day you know when vampirezombie hybrids can’t like go outside the level of tension rarely approaches anything close to a solid boil Anyways other than some mostly competent visuals I found this read glaringly bland

    I think the adaptation is well done and that the illustrations are great Some of the strategies used such as the blurring of the boundaries between Neville and the vampires and the speech balloons for Cortman worked great However it is too faithful—there is no risk with the adaptation whatsoever I know this is announced from the beginning which is why almost everything on the text is used as written by Matheson in the novel However I was expecting an authorial turn that was never there And that is not to my liking For those who look forward to fidelity this is the graphic novel for you For those who are looking for a new claim in relation to the primary work I would not recommend it

    This was a really good depiction of what a world could be like if drastic changes happen to it and to society I did feel at times that the graphic novel a bit disjointed probably because they couldn't include as many details as they needed to to make it flow better I also found that sometimes the text was hard to read that it was easy to confuse some of the letters for others Overall though not a bad read

  6. Jason Jason says:

    This book is a bit long winded but you could expect that from a tale that is mainly told from the perspective of one man's head Particularly an intensely introspective brash macho desperate man's head Nonetheless it is well animated and well told The movie concentrates so much on the habitual activity in already created comfort which i appreciated for the first half The book though explains furtively how he came to live in such an accomodating environment He has humble surroundings and it's believable He is also continually dealing with minor problems like his generator and the meager security for his home Also the vampires are not superhuman They are subhuman like zombies assigned to basically harass the living and eat them They are not rational enough to figure they could burn down his boarded up house Rather they throw rocks at it and call out his name night after nightThis book really focuses on the neurotic aspect of the legend One man the only survivor in a world full of moronic assholes It's sort of like the contrived existential crisis of your typical teenager which is probably why this translates so well into a graphic novel In a strong way it's just about being lonely The vampires are just a metaphor for cruel existence or not whatever The best part about the image i think is the really terrifying way the vampires are depicted There is one his neighbor Ben Cortman who shouts at him every night COME OUT NEVILLE It slowly drives him insane to the point where like in the movie he confronts the vampire population in kamikaze style attempting to take out as many as he can with his anger But it doesn't stop short there he survives learns a new modesty becomes a self proclaimed hermit Then the real interesting concept SPOILER ALERT he is visited by a woman claiming to be a survivor But she's not She's one of the new race part of the mutation of vampire humans who have inherited the earth He finds himself to be the virus the one thwart in their new evolution that is killing them off for no reason It is an unsettling conclusion that the only protagonist becomes the only enemy And it is brilliant for that that snap I have to say that the title has an actual affect here rather than the lame utterance given to it for sake of a titular line in the movie It has credit here As he realizes he no longer exists his kind his purpose He will by mythologized and that pain is releasing from the torment of his solitude It is unlike the film which cheapened it an utterance or declaration of death an absolving of the crap that has made his purgatory so withholding He has been waiting to prove that the evolution will go on and finding that it exists he falls prey to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle of ambitious explorers you can't find the new world without being it's new threat And so his death is the liberation from his real world ego to the supreme one which he will be remembered by the Legend

    This is the graphic novel adaption of Richard Mathieson's book I picked it up because I was too lazy to read the original novel Joke's on me this is the wordiest comic book I have ever laid eyes on Some of this text got skimmed I admit for two reasons The first is that not all of the words are necessary the pictures give you a pretty good idea of what's going on But mainly this book is so suspenseful I was always dying to turn the page The art is dated but functional The black and white cross hatch heavy illustrations are adeuate but nothing to phone home aboutThe strength of this work is not the words or pictures but the story itself a compelling last man on earth survivalist tale This book has a great set up and an awesome ending The scientific and psychological aspects of the tale and thoroughly and convincingly explored I heard the movie version has a different ending which is both necessary and regrettable I raced to finish this book and the last few pages proved I was right to hurry See for yourself

    i liked this book so much i'm reading it again this is a different view on Richard Matheson's classic novel I've seen the movie and these are both very different This is about a world taken over by vampires while the movie was about the world being taken over by an infectious disease If I was to say which was better I would say this This book's art is beautiful and the story is simple yet great I would recommend picking it up and at least reading a couple pages It's great

  9. VJ VJ says:

    Didn't see the movie so had no idea this was a vampire story but liked the scientific twist and attribution of vampire existence to germ theory

    I had already read the short story when I picked this up The illustrations added something to the story and I would definitely recommend to others
