Final Destination: Spring Break (also known as Final Destination: Death Never Takes A Vacation) is a five-issue comic book miniseries published by Zenescope Entertainment in 2006. Written by Mike Kalvoda, with art by both Lan Medina and Rodel Noora, the series was re-released in trade paperback format in 2007, and the first issue was reissued in 2009, coming packaged with select copies of The Final Destination sold at Target.
- Issue One: A group of college students head to Cancun, Mexico for spring break but their partying is quickly cut short when a hotel fire and subsequent explosion kills hundreds of people. Only a terrifying premonition by Carly, one of the girls in the group, saves the lives of her and her friends. The kids decide to stay in Mexico and make the best of their trip, but Carly knows deep down that death still lingers on the horizon.
- Issue Two: Although shaken from the previous night's events the group decides to stay in Cancun and make the best of their vacation. Meanwhile Carly confides in Bryan about her premonition and while he believes she might have some sort of "gift" that saved their lives, Carly just isn't so sure. As the group ventures out on their parasailing excursion everything seems to be going well. But in the midst of all the fun and excitement, another alarming vision rattles Carly. During her attempt to warn the others, a terrible and disturbing accident occurs as she realizes that Death is a step ahead of her this time.
- Issue Three: Death continues to stalk spring breakers as the shocking and gruesome "accidents" continue to pile up. Meanwhile, a meeting with a local fortune-teller confirms Carly's suspicion that Death does indeed have a design but Carly is determined to escape Cancun and leave this nightmare behind once and for all. But the more the remaining friends struggle to find a way home, the harder it becomes to get out as they find yet another dead end to their attempts. And slowly Carly begins to realize that there may be no escaping Death's plan after all.
- Issue Four: Knowing that he needs to start living every moment to the fullest, Bryan finds it pointless to hold back his feelings for Carly any longer. But Jake is too caught up in his own fears to even notice that his girlfriend might be falling for another guy. Meanwhile Detective Garcia searches for a way out of Cancun but is finding it next to impossible with the impending hurricane. As they wait, the remaining survivors search for anyway to relax and unwind but realize that when Death is on your heels there simply is no downtime.
- Issue Five: Only three survivors remain and now must somehow survive the wrath of Hurricane Jane as she unleashes her fury onto Cancun. Only sheer will keeps them going as they try to find a way to escape Death's design. Carly's final fight to cheat Death culminates in a surprise ending with an incredible twist that will leave readers floored. Don't miss the shocking conclusion to this intense series from Zenescope Entertainment and New Line Cinema!
