Omnibus, Volume 1
Omnibus, Volume 2

The zombie apocalypse has never been more surreal! A mentally unhinged manga artist witnesses the beginning of a zombie outbreak in Tokyo, and he's certain of only two things: he's destined to be the city's hero, and he possesses something very rare in Japan--an actual firearm!

Kengo Hanazawa's award-winning series comes to Dark Horse, and this realistically-drawn international bestseller takes us from initial small battles for survival to a huge, body-horror epidemic that threatens all of humanity! These special omnibus volumes will collect two of the original Japanese books into each Dark Horse edition and include all of the color pages.


My two-bits:

This book was mostly filled with the life and details of a manga artist trying to make it big in Japan.

Gradual zombie action moves through this book until the last quarter of the book. It took awhile for the hero to realize what the heck was going on.

So now I must get the second book to see how the hero holds his own.

Sex and sexual references intermingled as well.
