The popcorn of the zombie comic world. Hicks is one of our favorite comic writers and artists. We found out about her from her Wolverine short story pitch and we've bought almost everything she has in print.

In Zombies Calling, her first book, she gives us Joss, a Canadian university student who (a) wants to be British and (b) is obsessed with "The Rules" of how to survive in zombie movies. That obsession becomes quite useful when her campus is invaded by the undead! Just like in the movies, her zombie-ass-kicking skills magically emerge! Even her initially skeptical roommate Sonnet bashes one in the head with a library book - though she doesn't find the whole thing as exciting as Joss does.

Hicks' cartoon-style art matches the fun story and the slightly goofball personalities of Joss and her friends. It's a fun lighthearted zombie book that doesn't try to be something it's not. And if you can resist a book whose cover features a pink-haired woman stabbing a zombie with a spork...

Take Shaun of the Dead, make it Canadian and starring female students. Joss has watched many zombie movies, so she feels uniquely qualified to keep her and her flatmates alive but can she? It's a fast read and a fun story for zombie enthusiasts.

The cover's got a punk rock girl about to drive a metal spork into a zombie's brain. So it's gotta be awesome, right?

Meh, not as awesome as I had hoped. It's a zombie-comedy, and while a lot of the like, side jokes between the humans are funny the zombies themselves are overly cheesy, as is the origin of the zombification.

Worth reading for zombie fans and high schoolers.
