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.
Ever After is such a heartwarming story about friendship and staying together no matter what when there’s no one else around. Its an apocalyptic story about zombies, friendship and seeking happiness against the chaos the world has brought over in the vile creatures of zombies.
The illustrations and colour of the story throughout are absolutely beautiful and captivating. It made me unable to pick it down and instead feel like soaking in the graphic novel, of the illustrations and the story.
They fought hard against the zombies, run away for freedom and towards a better ever after. It also deals with grief, sadness and then of feeling hopeful that things may just work out for them at the end. A light at the end of the tunnel in a city of Jena where its better, sunnier and hopefully for a better future for both of them.
