Chaos Campus: Sorority Girls vs. Zombies
is a long-running horror-comedy and zombie apocalypse comic book series. The creation of writer/comics impresario, B. Alex Thompson
, Chaos Campus is published by his company, Approbation Comics. The series is set during a zombie invasion and follows the adventures of three members of the sorority, Epsilon Alpha Zeta Upsilon (EAZY): ass-kickin’ Jamie Lynn Schaeffer
, brainy and magic-wielding Paige Helena Patton

Chaos Campus: Sorority Girls vs. Zombies #25
opens to find Paige and Brittany imprisoned. Luckily, the people doing the imprisoning surprisingly include Paige's brother, Tyler, and her mother, Morgan. There is a happy reunion with Jamie, who is suspicious of their new circumstances. But Jamie's troubles are just beginning. Plus, meet the “Neo-Zombies
“The Road to Salvation” story line looks to be the next most-excellent Chaos Campus adventure arc. This isn't the first time that an “evolved” zombie has appeared in the series, but this time, dear readers, we have the addition of some kooky family dynamics, via the Pattons, thrown into the mix.
Once, again we get a chance to enjoy creator-writer B. Alex Thompson's superb dialogue writing, especially in the case of Jamie's urban slash hip hop slang. This “shiz” is not “wack,” and I am always impressed by how much “jive” Thompson can string together.
Jose Henrique's animation-inspired art offers excellent storytelling. Anita Zaramella's anime-inspired coloring brings some extra zip to the story, a mixture of action, comedy, and action-comedy-horror. Elisa M. Coletti's lettering and word balloons seem to dance away from intruding on the art, but adds some more zing to this spry episode.
I'll say something else that I have said before. I don't know why Chaos Campus is not a multi-media franchise, already on our television and handheld device screens.
Fans of zombies and of horror-comedies will want to try Chaos Campus: Sorority Girls vs. Zombies
