Rating: 4.5 ♥ / 5 ♥ – I really, really liked it

Joss’s life sucks. She’s worrieda about exams and student loan debt when she’d much rather be watching the zombie movies she loves. So it’s no surprise that when she tells her roommates that she’s been attacked by a swarm of real-life, brain-hungering zombies – zombies! – they think the stress has finally cracked her.

But Joss knows she’s sane – and it’s a good thing, too! Because the zombies are real, and she’s the only one who knows how to fight them. Armed with “The Rules,” truths about fighting the undead gleaned from zombie movies, Joss, Sonnet and Robyn just might make it out of their dorm alive.

This is such a fun graphic novel! Joss is an intense zombie movie fan, so when zombies take over he university campus, all she has to do is play by “The Rules,” and she and her friends will survive brains intact.

I’m on a huge zombie kick, so this short but action packed graphic novel was right up my alley. Though only short, Joss was very well-imagined, and I liked her immediately. The idea of how the zombies came to be was great; I think every student would click with it. Oh, and the fact that Joss and her friends go to school in Canada? Even better! The whole story was interesting, well-drawn and fun. I think most zombie lovers would appreciate it.
