Title: Ever After
Author: Olivia Vieweg
Genre: YA Horror Graphic Novel
Publication Date: June 4th, 2012 (Sept 1st, 2020 for English Translation)
Publishers: Lerner Publishing Group
Vivi and Eva are two travelers in a countryside filled with the undead. After a train breaks down, stranding them between safe zones, the young women partner up to stay alive. Vivi is struggling with grief–and guilt–over the loss of her sister. Eva is hiding the start of a horrifying transformation. Together they’ll face heat, zombie hordes, and their own inner demons, searching for signs of life in a land of the dead. This graphic novel addition to an enduring genre is thoughtful and emotion-driven, but also full of zombie scares and action.
This graphic novel was just straight out confusing. I still have no idea what really happened in this graphic novel. It was very hard to follow and didn’t have any context or really explanation as to what the heck was going on. I found my self not really following what was going on for majority of the book. There was a couple sections where I thought ‘ahh okay, I get it’ and then the next page I was back to being confused.
This is on the longer side for a graphic novel. This one is nearly 300 pages and majority of graphic novels are around 100 – 150 pages. So this had the potential to really build the world and grow the story but it simply didn’t do any of that. There is a zombie apocalypse but that is literally all we find out. I don’t think there was really any world building to this and the characters were just flat and didn’t really developed or even get fleshed out at all. I couldn’t follow what was going on in the plot so really there is nothing positive for me to really say.
Also this book kinda just ended. It didn’t wrap anything up or answer any questions at all. It feels like there should be a book 2 to explain everything but this is a standalone. So that definitely felt off.
The only positive is that the art is nice but even that left me slightly confused because when you look at the cover compared to the inside of the book it REALLY doesn’t match. The cover makes it look like it’s going to be a cute or whimsical story (well thats the vibe I get at least) and then the themes of the Graphic Novels are mental health & zombies… So I’m not sure how that fits at all.
Overall I don’t recommend this book. Nothing was explained, nothing made much sense and nothing was concluded.
