This was an engrossing introduction zombie story. Violent and shocking with quite a few twists that leave the reader with an unknown outcome. For horror, I love the unknown aspects. Keep me in suspense to the end. So far, this story has taken the first steps in that direction.

A Professor Wright has been requested to come to Marhawa. A private academy in the middle of nowhere. Miles form civilization, no phone lines or other means of communication with the outside would. It is run by an ex-girlfriend who is now a nun and headmistress of the school. So he brings his nephew along for the trip as a life experience. Well, it will be an experience all right. IF they can survive.

A small zombie outbreak has begun at the academy. The headmistress is keeping it under-wraps so the students are unaware of the problem for the time being. When Wright suggests contacting the BSAA, she refuses. But without leads on how it started, this school could be in for a lot of trouble!

This is just the first volume of a short graphic novel series. So far I really like the characters. I also love the mystery that shrouds the school, the outbreak and what secrets the headmistress has.

While we do get get Chris Redfield and team in this volume, it is a very brief and distant involvement. This volume left me eager to continue. To learn what is going on and see how bad things will get. Because this is just the beginning...

A fairly light read being about zombies but it is still plenty violent and the teen behavior of much of the characters (being this is a high school) adds a mix of both unpredictability from some and cliche reactions from others. So it is well blended.
