Nine | 4 comments A series of at least three hardcover comicbooks that I remember reading somewhere around 2009/2010, borrowed from the local library. It follows a group of children in large city where almost all of the people have disappeared. Notable events in the story include them using a car as a gate for their base, and them finally capturing a kid in a gasmask that had been hunting them for a while. I recall the series being quite graphic, and the cover of one of the books features one of the children wielding a baseball bat.

Thanks for the suggestions, but unfortunately neither of those are the book I'm looking for. I'm pretty sure the reason for the adults disappearing wasn't mentioned, atleast not in the series' entries that I read.

Tathariell | 171 comments Oh, maybe The Last Kids on Earth and the Zombie Parade (Last Kids on Earth, #2) by Max Brallier ? Though now that I look closer, it was only published in the last few years, so too recent to be your book. And it's not a graphic novel, though there are many illustrations.

Sadly neither of these is the specific book series I'm looking for, but thanks for your suggestions. I'm pretty sure there were also no zombies featured in the books, but I could be wrong.

I've gone through the list, but none of the books on it are from the series I'm looking for
