When Nick Tapalansky and Alex Eckman-Lawn’s Awakening debuted in 2007, it quickly became one of the most talked about new projects around. Its young creators took the standard “zombies attack a remote town” theme and turned it around, making it more about the investigation of hard-living detective Derrick Peters. No zombies are ever seen (at least not yet), and there’s no guarantee that we ever will. No matter. What we do see, and relish, is Eckman-Lawn’s magnificent artistry on every page.
