Discover the BEST of GORE from JAPAN! Crueler Than Dead features fast paced and extremely graphic violence, concealing none of the absolute horror…and requiring a strong heart and stomach! A two-volume deal for lovers of horror! No one knows where it started…but when the world finally realized what was going on, it was already too late. When Maki Akagi wakes up in a lab full of corpses, she learns from a dying soldier that she is the result of a last-ditch experiment to cure humans of a virus turning them into zombies. Accompanied by a young boy who also miraculously escaped, she will have to try to get to the very center of a devastated Tokyo filled with bloodthirsty monsters. The dome located there contains the last survivors of mankind. Humanity’s very survival depends solely on a few drops of a miraculous vaccine… In Vol. 2: Maki and Shota finally make it to Tokyo Dome, the largest refugee camp in the entire Kanto region and one of the last places to survive the zombie outbreak that has overwhelmed the whole world. Maki, who brings with her the remaining doses of the vaccine developed at the Gunma pharmaceutical center where she woke up in the first volume, is taken care of by the structure in power in the Dome, where a handful of privileged people, under the leadership of Colonel Shimamoto, live in luxury, while the majority of the rest of the survivors are reduced to survive in appalling conditions. Shota and Miura are thrust into the difficult daily lives of survivors who do not have the chance to be privileged. Miura is assigned to a work team while Shota befriends the leader of a gang of children who say they can help locate her father… Inspired by Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira), The Walking Dead, Romero classics, and new zombie films like 28 Day Later, Crueler Than Dead delights in the meticulous detail of decomposed flesh, with a wicked and hungry eye…evoking a modern vision of a zombie world that is terrifying and tension filled.
