A storytelling tour de force by turns creepy and poignant . . . One of the
best books of the year. —Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly You wake up in
the rubble and see a ragged, desperate one-armed man greeting you. He takes
you underground to a safe space, feeds you, offers you a place to sleep,
and then announces that he'll take the first watch. It's not long before
the peril of the jagged landscape has located you and your newfound
protector and is scratching at the door. What transpires is a moment-to-
moment struggle for survival—The Road meets Dawn of the Dead. Daybreak is
seen through the eyes of a silent observer as he follows his protector and
runs from the shadows of the imminent zombie threat. Brian Ralph slowly
builds the tension of the zombies on the periphery, letting the
threat—rather than the actual carnage—be the driving force. The
postapocalyptic backdrop features tangles of rocks, lumber, I-beams, and
overturned cars that are characters in and of themselves. A New York Times
Graphic Novel Bestseller and YALSA Great Graphic Novel For Teens, Daybreak
is an art-house take on the classic zombie genre.
