The Strain Volume 1

The Strain Volume 1 - David Lapham, Mike Huddleston, Dan Jackson

A CDC doctor is called to help investigate a landed airplane at JFK, there has been no contact with the plane since landing and it is up to Ephraim Goodweather and his team to respond to what is thought to be a biological terrorist attack. What they find on board may be the end of mankind.


I really enjoyed the story with this one, especially the folklore, the origins of the virus and how Abraham came to do battle with the vamps. The volume does a great job in setting up relevant back story and characters, the lead characters in particular are engaging and I felt invested in their storylines. 


This art was good but seemed a bit inconsistent at times and perhaps due to personal taste not quite as engaging as some other graphic novels I've read.


A good read all in all and I'll definitely be picking up the second volume.
