Oddly enough, Biohazard: Heavenly Island, is one of the better zombie stories I've read in a while.
As you probably well know, Biohazard is the original title of the Resident Evil video games in Japan. This comic series takes place some time after Resident Evil 6 the video game. Biohazard: Heavenly Island is an original comic book tie-in series printed on premium paper and published in Weekly Shonen Champion.
The premise is simple but loads of fun. It's basically the reality series Next Top Model South America meets the series Survivor, but when the girls engage in a competition to not get voted off the island, strange things are afoot. Lurking on the island are zombies! Suddenly the models start getting killed off one by one by the zombie horde.
As luck would have it, Claire Redfield is sent to the island to investigate something even more dark and evil.
As it turns out, the television network sponsoring the Survivor meets Top Model reality show knew about the zombies -- and thought it would make for great television.
Some of the models band together to better survive what has become a hellish Nightmare Island. And just when our last group of bikini clad supermodels are about to bite the big one, quite literally, Claire Redfield shows up in the nick of time to save them.
I am really enjoying this series so far. Japanese manga -- gotta love it!
