Goodreads:
Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of handwringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery mold, nuchauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Collects issues #1-4.

My Thoughts:

I wasn’t a huge fan of this in the beginning. It wasn’t that I didn’t like it; it’s just that with all the things I heard from it I was expecting…more? But by the time I read issue #2 I loved it! So if you feel like that in the beginning keep reading; just give it some time.Read More »

Goodreads Synopsis:

How many hours are in a day when you don’t spend half of them watching television?
When is the last time any of us REALLY worked to get something we wanted?

How long has it been since any of us really NEEDED something that we WANTED?

The world we knew is gone.

The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.

An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living.

In a matter of months society has crumbled.
no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV.

In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.

The main reason I read this is that I love the show. The show took me a bit to get into, but after watching a handful of episodes, I was hooked! I’m up to date with the episodes and thought I’d check out the original story and see how it relates to what I watch.Read More »
