What a strange little comic.
sweet pea
this has most everything one could want in a zombie comic: class warfare, pigs, martial arts, bunny masks, afros, and lots of blood. an often-hilarious tale of Tokyo gone dead and the rich person's utopia that develops. in the end, there's not enough, uh, meat in the story to keep me satisfied.

The artwork in this reminds me of a Dolan comic. It started off quite funny with zombie handjobs and random deaths but for more than half of the book towards the end is just repetitive zombie fight scenes. Still not a bad way to spend half an hour...
I adored the quirky violence mixed in with thoughts on the direction people could go given such an event. I can't resist my survival horror with a heavy dosage of laughter.

Recommended to Erik by:
Excellent "avant-absurd" zombie tale (see Hanakuma's visual style is every bit as good/bad as I've read. Great self-contained, gross and hilarious story.
Pretty awesome, I am not surprised they made it into a movie as it is the perfect mixture of stupid and awesome that you want out of anaction/horror movie.
AWESOME! my favorite character is the dog.
This book is CRAZY! In the best possible way.
Pure unadulterated zombie goodness.
funniest comic i've read in memory.
