Zombies Don't Sleep But....

but it looks like Brian Ralph's DAYBREAK is a sleeper hit. Not only did it make a showing on the New York Times Graphic Novel Bestseller list, he spoke to New York Magazine about what to do about the zombie apocalypse, it's received multiple high profile praise from the press. Let's begin:

"We're discussing the zombie apocalypse so much these days that I'd like to bring up one recent zombie book I truly love: Brian Ralph's Daybreak...It just might become your annual Halloween read."–Whitney Matheson, USA Today's Pop Candy.

"What could have been a storytelling stunt by writer/artist Brian Ralph is instead a storytelling tour de force by turns creepy and poignant...One of the best books of the year."–Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly

"[DAYBREAK] a fresh look at the comics medium and a story that ascends above the genre trappings. Great book."–Jeremy Nisen, Under The Radar

"Daybreak is an antidote to the grim, ultra-violent fare that passes for zombie literature. It’s post-apocalyptic, yes, but it’s an intelligent take on a genre that, funny enough, often lacks brains."–Mark Medley, National Post

"Ralph’s first-person approach is brilliantly cruel, locking us into the point of view of someone who says nothing and thinks nothing."–Noel Murray, AV Club

"Daybreak is fantastic. Ralph is all show and never tell, not bothering to “solve” the zombie plague or waste any space with long-winded exposition. The last two pages will leave you checking the locks on your bedroom door."–Alex Carr, Omnivoracious

"Daybreak is a rock-solid read, and many horror comics would do well to learn from its example."–Cyriaque Lamar, io9
