First thing, if you like gross and violence just for the sake of gross and violence, meaningless death just for the sake of meaningless death; if you also like zombies, death-match and dark sense of humor, if zombie-handjob and people losing their heads don't gross you out too much. I think you will like Tokyo Zombie (sub title: Tokyo of the Dead).

The artwork is simple and be honest, quite ugly; but strangely I still enjoy seeing 'black and white' zombies drawn with simple ink-line

Este manga, digamos underground, es una delicia en que los acontecimientos se encadenan con un ritmo que no cesa. Hay que tener en cuenta que Tokyo zombie se publicó originalmente por entregas en las páginas de una revista. Tal vez por eso es tan descabelladamente loco, cosa que ...more

You'll either like the jokes or think they're terrible. I thought they were terrible (particularly the oft repeated "Pig Surfing!"). You'll find the amateur art brilliant or terrible. I thought it was terrible. Half the book is wrestling matches between humans and zombies. The dialogue is awful. Feels like something a 5 year old would come up with. This is one of the worst comics I've ever read.

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.

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.
What a strange little comic.

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.
