When people in Juárez got up to start a new day, they never imagined how far they were going to be from their daily routine. In a matter of hours Juárez is invaded by the undead. 75% of the population dies in the first 4 hours, less than 3% make it out of the country and the last 22% is trap in an epidemiologic ring planted by the United Nations as protection. The last survivors gather themselves in “cells”, local gangs turned into human establishments, the last line of defense.
Infestación is a ground breaking comic series set in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, the most dangerous border town in the world, where a zombie plague that has taken over both cities and all they have to survive is each other.
Excerpt from "The Comics Journal" review of Infestacion by Kristian Williams
...“Outbreak,” is by far the best. It comprises seven short stories, mostly by Francisco Arce. These one-issue vignettes portray the confusion and fear of the first days of a zombie attack. We see the initial signs of infection, followed by its fast but quiet spread, the chaos of social collapse, the efforts of individuals and small groups to defend themselves, and the reaction of the authorities when faced with an unprecedented apocalypse.
Set in the border town of Ciudad Juárez — the other side of El Paso — the incidents range from the dramatic to the banal. Or rather, as is usual in disasters, the heroic, the tragic, the horrific, and the commonplace mix together: a group of men hunt down an infected dog. People try to save their sick children. Human smugglers load live people into a truck, and unload dead people — or rather, undead people. U.S. soldiers hold the line at the border, firing at zombies and refugees alike. The art varies by issue, displaying influences from manga, adventure strips, realist illustration, photo-montage, and of course, classic horror comics.
