This comic series is a prequel to Amanda Hocking’s YA horror series The Hollows. This review is for the first of ten installments.

It’s Day One as a new pandemic sweeps the globe, and all over the world people are turning into mindless zombies. ┬áBut for five people – siblings Remy and Max King, med student Blue Adams, rock star Lazlo Durante, and teenager Harlow Smith – it’s the start of a journey they can never return from!

The first issue of The Hollows comic series gives the reader a look at the beginnings of Remy, Max, Blue, Lazlo, Harlow, and Ripley, and squashing that many characters into a 26-page comic is an interesting feat. The comic jumps around from situation to situation, only spending a handful of time with each. I’m not sure when or if I will be reading the rest of the story, but I hope subsequent issues choose maybe one or two characters and stick with them for the duration. That said, it was an interesting look at characters whose beginnings were not discussed in much detail, if at all, in the books, so it’s worth it for that alone, at least while it’s still free. :)
