The final volume in the Zombie Powder series continues the engaging story of Gamma, a chainsaw sword wielding master criminal, Smith, a light-hearted super criminal himself, Elwood, on the cusp not just between boy and man, but criminal and hero, and Wolfina, who is trying to save her brother from both a circus of crazies and a Ring of the Dead. This volume continues to establish our leads as heroes of the Punisher type, who don't hesitate to break laws and even kill people if it keeps innocents safe. Kubo drops more tantalizing hints about Gamma and Smith's histories, then comes the blow that this is the last book in the series and therefore will remain unfinished.Was this review helpful?

Zombie Powder is a fun series, even if the action scenes are confusing and space consuming. The characters make the story, as great characters should, and its hard not to see them translating well to other mediums. I truly hope Kubo revisits these characters again, but as far as getting to see the creative mind playing with convention, this is a rewarding series and should be a part of manga collections. (Though it's more appropriate for a teen audience than middle grade.)
Contains: cartoon violence, implied criminal activity including sexual crimes and murder

Better the Bleach, way too short though
This is, sadly, the final Zombie Powder book. Kubo wrote it during High School and gave up at the end. A few years after he graduated he wrote Bleach. This book drops at a major cliffhanger, but this and the others are still a good read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
