Description

Stranded between safe zones, Vivi and Eva are two travelers in a countryside filled with the undead. The survivors of their world live behind barricades--and live in fear of the next attack.

After their train breaks down, the young women partner up to stay alive. Vivi is struggling with grief--and guilt--over the loss of her sister. Eva is hiding the start of a horrifying transformation. Together they'll face heat, zombie hordes, and their own inner demons, searching for signs of life in a land of the dead. This graphic novel addition to an enduring genre is thoughtful and emotion-driven, but also full of zombie scares and action.

Both thoughtful and terrifying, and an unexpected take on a familiar premise.--School Library Journal

. . . Vieweg offers an art-house take on a normally gory and typically action-packed subject . . . A melancholic but multicolored apocalyptic tale told with originality. --Kirkus Reviews

There's a twisted fairy-tale feel throughout, especially apparent when Vivi stumbles across a tea party reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland that is hosted by a plant-life sprouting zombie who cultivates a beautiful garden fertilized by others of her kind. Horror fans will welcome this fresh take on the zombie trope. Readers will find Vivi and Eva's plight, flight, and enduring friendship both touching and compelling.--School Library Media Connection

"There is a raw, fearless physicality to [Vieweg's] work that sets it apart." -- Marc-Oliver Frisch, The Comics Journal

Review quote

Weimar, Germany, is protected from raging hordes of zombie by a barricade; those assigned to work shifts must keep the fence in working order. Teenage Vivi stays at the mental hospital, where she gets special attention, since she reminds the warden of her daughter. But even the warden can't keep her from serving a shift at the barricades, where she and a younger girl, Isabelle, are assigned to Eva's team. Tough Eva is unafraid of zombie killing and decidedly uninterested in being a part of a group. When the barricade is breached, both Eva and Isabelle are bitten; in a gruesome sequence, Isabelle dies, but Eva conceals her bite. She and Vivi try to make it to the allegedly safer town of Jena, and they find themselves on the same cargo train out of the city. The teens have to work through past grief, and though they are different, they manage to connect with each other. Ideally suited for this dark fairy tale, Vieweg's art is dreamy and pastel, save for the splatters of blood and the horrors of nighttime and attacks by the undead. First published in Germany, with a film adaptation, this is a unique addition to the zombie apocalypse genre. VERDICT Both thoughtful and terrifying, and an unexpected take on a familiar premise.--School Library Journal-- "Journal" (7/1/2020 12:00:00 AM)
