I was never a huge horror fan, in fact I avoided it. But during my high school career, I got a job at a comic and game store with a push for things more on the horror/zombie side. I quickly grew to love the horror and zombie genre and I had to familiarize myself with the material so I could sell it, so I watched a lot of zombie movies and read a large amount of zombie comics. I hold a VERY high standard when it comes to zombies now, so I was very skeptical about Highschool of the Dead, but it delivered on ALL levels.

Great story. Characters you fall in love with. Situations that literally are heart pounding. Keeps you on edge just the right amount of time and brings you back to the humor and curiosity to calm you back down. Just the right amount of gross. And it follows so close to what really would really happen in this situation that it makes it that much better.

A must read for horror fans.
