However, Warren thinks he has the elixir after testing with a monkey and plans to use an airborne virulent of Ebola to deliver it. --- In Cherry Hinton Hall Park in Cambridge, Roger and his three children celebrate the birthday of his wife their mom. The youngest child sees a monkey in a tree that attacks the kid. He is rushed to the hospital as all hell has broken loose because Warren¿s concept mutated making the Rage Virus the norm. --- This is the first ¿stage¿ and a half of a five stage graphic comic doomsday thriller. The art is gripping with its overall darkness enhancing the feeling of overall doom. The cast is solid as family battles to survive the aftermath of science out of control. Fans of the format especially those who enjoyed the movie 28 Days Later will want to read this terrific horror thriller. --- Harriet Klausner
