Frank and Joe go undercover as the Living Dead to infiltrate a "Zombie Crawl" that has acquired a notorious reputation -- a teenager in Zombie makeup appears to "accidentally" die in the last Zombie Crawl through Bayport. Will the Undercover Brothers and Agents of A.T.A.C. discover what's really going on in Zombieland or become the next accidental victims? As if that weren't enough-- there's something dark and sinister happening while everyone's distracted by zombie madness! Could this possibly be linked to the eerie events also occurring in River Heights, home of Nancy Drew? This story sets up one of the most unexpected events in Hardy Boys history - but that's the shocking story that awaits in THE HARDY BOYS: THE NEW CASE FILES Graphic Novel #2!
About the Author
Comics legend Gerry Conway wrote the classic "Amazing Spider Man" #121 "The Night Gwen Stacy Died," which Marvel recently named one of their greatest comicbooks of all time. He has also written for "Batman," "Detective Comics," "Flash" (all DC), "Captain America," "Daredevil," "The Incredible Hulk," "Iron Man" (all Marvel Comics) and countless others.Paulo Henrique has illustrated The Hardy Boys graphic Novels since volume number 7. He first brought his unique Manga style to the United States in Top Cow Productions' "Myth Warriors."
Gr 5-7-This mix of the Hardy Boys with zombies is not, in fact, a sign of the apocalypse, but rather a fast-paced story that should entice reluctant readers. Frank and Joe race motorcycles, communicate with ATAC (American Teens Against Crime), and try to solve the mystery of why teenagers who've been participating in flash mob stunts called "zombie crawls" (because they dress and act like zombies) have started losing control of themselves in a decidedly zombielike way. The book is a simple page-turner, with a level of suspense on par with a "Goosebumps" book or an episode of Scooby-Doo. Henrique's artwork is colorful, shiny, and bright, a pleasing mix of traditional American cartoon and Japanese manga styles (yet another plus for attracting reluctant readers). While this book will probably attract Hardy Boys fans, it is not necessary to have read the earlier books in order to understand and appreciate this one.-Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library (c) Copyright 2011.
