From Library Journal:

While anything zombie gets attention these days-sometimes more than it deserves-Ralph's debut stands out from the rest of the undead horde, because it takes an inward and personal approach, like all good indie comics, to the idea of trying to survive in the land of the walking dead. Written and drawn from a first-person perspective, Daybreak pulls us into a world where humans are prey who scavenge for food and hide in makeshift shelters after nightfall. We follow a one-armed man who welcomes us into his home and schools us on his daily survival rituals. Slightly abstract line drawings and beady-eyed people build an aesthetic that's more art house than artifice. And the content mirrors that vibe with a story line focused on companionship, trust, and introspection rather than guts, blood, and monotone chants of "brains." Verdict Ultimately, this book is a voyeur's journey into zombie Armageddon, where the cruelest trick isn't what these monsters do to us but how alone they make us feel. For all zombie completists and pulp horror movie fanatics; but the dynamic appeal is really for cultural outliers who prefer the prefix indie in front of their entertainment options.-Robert Morast, Fargo, ND (c) Copyright 2012.
