Comic book creator Brian Ralph looks back on the original graphic novel Daybreak and how it compares to the Netflix original series. I wasn't playing video games and my students and people I knew were talking about playing video games and I was sort of jealous about the way they felt so immersed in the adventure. And I just had this thought "How do I make a comic be that immersive experience?"

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 new-found 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 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 post-apocalyptic backdrop features tangles of rocks, lumber, I beams, and overturned cars that are characters in and of themselves. Drawing inspiration from horror movies, television, and first-person shooter video games, Daybreak departs from zombie genre in both content and format, achieving a living-dead masterwork of literary proportions

Brian Ralph was a founding member of the influential and now-disbanded art collective Fort Thunder, acclaimed for their artistic melding of influences from comic books, video games, television, and fine art. With his award-winning debut work Cave In, Ralph emerged as a premier cartoonist.

Country of Publication. His debut graphic novel, Cave-In, was nominated for three Harvey Awards, one Eisner Award, and listed as one of the Comics Journal's "five best comics of 1999". His second graphic novel, Climbing Out, was awarded a Xeric Grant in 2001. His third graphic novel, Daybreak, was published by Drawn and Quarterly in September 2011.

As indie cartoonist Brian Ralph’s graphic novel Daybreak makes clear, the end of the world is just the beginning. With the book newly reissued in a hardcover format, The Hollywood Reporter has an excerpt of the quiet apocalypse that takes place after the main event. Even though I started drawing Daybreak years ago, those characters still feel fresh to me, the world feels vital, like not that much time has passed.

"A storytelling tour de force by turns creepy and poignant . . . One of the best books of the year." ―Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly

A comic by one of my college professors! Bought this as a gift for my friend who was in one of his classes with me and it looked spectacular. Shipping was a little slow and it arrived well past Christmas/New Years when I needed it, but it arrived no less and it survived the trek. My friend was well pleased with her gift. Thanks for being a cool dude, Bralph :D

Daybreak is a comic that uses the medium in a new, interesting way- and the end result is a story that is finely tuned with emotion. As mentioned on the back cover, the entire story is told to you from a first person perspective. You are introduced to the main character, a one-armed man who is simply fighting for survival in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited with zombies. He is your guide through a gorgeously drawn wasteland, and over time through his struggles and good humor, he becomes our friend.
By having the viewer as an active participant in the action, a strong atmosphere is created that grips the reader until the very last page. We become emotionally invested in the story's outcome and are curious to see what fate lies in store for us and our one-armed pal.

Daybreak isn't like anything else in the 'zombie' genre of fiction. It is a sweet and heartfelt look at friendship during times of survival, and the zombies are just the element of distress that add to the story's overall landscape. This is a must-read comic for anyone who pines for a fresh look at visual storytelling.

Very good series of books (1, 2 and 3) Told in a first person perspective like a video game it tells the adventures of a silent protagonist (you) who tries to survive in a zombie waste land.

The books are simply drawn but with a lot of thought put into them which makes you go back over the book trying to figure out the exact sequence of things (not in a annoying way though as in many badly planned comics)

The best thing about the books for me though was the personal nature and the way the first person perspective and minimal use of words made you feel you were there. Clever writing and composition helped too.

In the end a moving story despite it's relative short length. It's a real sum of it's parts experience.

Highly recommended!

Zombies. Mystery. Beautiful Artwork. Great Writing. These are all the reasons you need to get this book and read it. At first I thought the idea of "first person" protagonist that never speaks as a gimmick. I was WRONG! Once you get into the story you realize that YOU are the protagonist. The reader. After that you become immersed in a world that is too awesome to spoil for you here.

Great book

Told from the point of view (POV) of you, the reader, the book opens with a one armed boy talking to you in a post-apocalyptic landscape surrounded with junk and dirt. You and the boy go on a journey that takes in the rest of this strange world until you realise that the reason why it all went to hell was because people started turning into zombies. That's right, this is an arty comic book version of the zombie apocalypse!

The drawing style is similar to James Kochalka's, which is no bad thing by the by, he's an excellent artist, but the story is really great, sweeping you up in the confusion into a fast paced plot and ultimately a personal tragedy. The point of view way of telling the story is different from how usual zombie stories are done and Brian Ralph does a fine job of telling the story via this approach.

The character of the one-armed boy is well written and his story arc is dealt with brilliantly, from a rapscallion you feel sorry for to ultimately a real person who bravely faces up to their fate.

I really enjoyed this book and felt that it deserves a wider audience, especially those who enjoy the zombie sub-genre of contemporary horror, but who also like really well done indie comics. Brian Ralph has written and drawn a wonderful comic that I loved reading, one that is definitely worth checking out for yourself.

Understated and subtly funny graphic novel notable for extraordinarily high quality of its black-and-white drawings.

The story of two people trying to survive in post-apocalyptic zombie wasteland has been done many times, but this work brings a completely new perspective to its challenges.

Great and subtle details make these episodes repay close attention. They combine to show extremely interesting and sympathetic characters.

This five-star review should be taken to apply to all three episodes in the graphic novel: they're all superb, combining humanism and artistry in a crisp, sharp style.
Brian Ralph's Daybreak. Daybreak is a graphic novel about a Zombie apocalypse. I know that you're thinking: "What's so interesting about that, plenty of other graphic novels already cashing in on that genre - The Walking Dead, etc."

The beautiful thing about Daybreak is that the main protagonist, an unnamed one-armed survivor speaks to the reader/'unknown addressed' directly. An off screen character is addressed by this survivor as he takes you to a safe-house, provides you with food, information, and most importantly - weapons.

The artwork is simple but very effective. I won't get into the circumstances surrounding this particular Zombie infestation/apocalypse. It is enough to know that we the reader/'unknown addressed' follow along and must somehow survive a very dangerous world.
