History and Back Story

This is a 'history' of sorts, about the Talbot family, the virus and a very important suitcase. No zombie action, but lots of foundation and backstory that isn't crucial to the rest of the series, but it's nice to have even more story knowledge and see how Tommy's been involved with the Talbot's for generations.

NOOOOT worth the $ or a credit...

Story is great, but we knew that! This is basically a prologue to a story never finished. This should not be paid for. It does explain how the virus came to be, so if you are adamant about having all the facts, get it! Just know at the end you'll be left like.... "What..."

good pre-qual, more data than action

This gives us the back story of the fallout and is a well put together timeline.
