Lord of the Flies as Graphic Novel

Daybreak, Netflix's foray into creating a snarky, post-apocalyptic high school dramedy, is ostensibly based on the eponymous graphic novel by Brian Ralph. The similarities between the show and the book, however, stop after the shared title, the post-apocalyptic setting, and certain characters breaking the fourth wall (for a couple episodes, at least).The vast difference between the show and the graphic novel is not a bad thing, necessarily. But fans of the comic expecting a dark zombie story will find nothing of the sort in Netflix's Daybreak, which focuses on a handful of kids trying to be witty while attempting to survive in a world where everyone over the age of 18 has turned into flesh-eating monsters (but not zombies...don't call them zombies). The conceit of the show is a fun one, and if the idea of following the travails of a group of young outcasts in a cliquey, post-nuclear Glendale sounds appealing, I wouldn't blame you for giving this show a try. I thought I might be one of those into such a show, in fact. And when I sat down to watch the first five episodes, I was excited to see how the show would turn the often-trod zombie apocalypse trope on its head.
With all the recent superhero and graphic novel adaptations hitting screens lately, it's hard to know which stories have been culled from the pages of a comic. You know your Marvel and DC characters were comic book characters, but what about some of the others you see on TV that have that "comic origin story" feel? For example, it might be hard to tell if The Society is based on a comic book.
With this fifth graphic novel in the Dog Man series, Dav Pilkey shows no signs of slowing down. Lord of the Fleas is packed with all the visual gags, bad puns, and nonstop silliness his readers have come to expect, along with (gasp!) a few genuinely heartfelt moments. As always, the art is funny, colorful, and engaging, rendered (supposedly) by Harold and George of Captain Underpants fame.
