Reviews I Am a Hero Omnibus, Volume 3 (I am a Hero Omnibus, #3)
- Zombie babies are so stinking creepy!!
- I dislike zombie stuff in general, but I just can't stop loving I Am A Hero.Delicious mockery of Japanese society continues. Uses tropes to its advantage. Creepy babies! Stupid people!Small nod to Romero's Dawn of the Dead.
- Read it way too fast, I'm actually depressed, but I just couldn't put it down. Can't wait for the next Omnibus.
- Absolutely enjoying this series, which has become much more zombie-centered than the earlier chapters.
- I went into this series, largely on the word of mouth that it's the best zombie manga ever written. But as of the end of Omnibus 3, I personally feel that it's got a handful of potentially good story hooks, that are mired in very tired, familiar tropes. People still follow herd mentalities, even when it's a terrible idea. There are sketchy, militaristic enclaves of survivors, where all is probably not as it seems. A lot of people are terrible und...
- The third omnibus volume continues with one focus - the society of people today. The realism of people not taking news seriously is true today. What I love is the depiction of how people are more focus on their technology today and not aware of their surroundings makes this a politically correct of the 21st century people.But coming back to the series, now the zombies has a name - ZQNs. How it came to be is surprising but what is more surprising,...
- It seems difficult for a zombie apocalypse story to turn darker, but this volume begins to focus more on how things involving people can always get worse. Hideo and his friends encounter a group of survivors, but the reality of crazy they are takes a while to sink in.The only thing I don't like about this story is that occasionally the events jump forward, skipping things that the reader might want to see happen. That is the case in this volume, ...
- This zombie manga brings an element to horror that is it typically seen in zombie stories. It's a sign the pure creativity that a manga can capture and would be so hard to do well in a feature film. The relationships here are strong and disturbing. The people are nearly all flawed. Sometimes the flaws help them, sometimes they signal their downfall. Very fun, immersive read if you dig this genre.
- This series keeps getting better with each omnibus.
- stating to think it's a bit... slow (the series on it's whole)
- The strange internet chatter interlude left me cold but the rest was delightfully unhinged.
