Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
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
Kirkus Reviews

Not the total reset the title and cover might lead readers to believe, this is nevertheless a relatively fresh graphic-novel retooling of a very old franchise. Joe and Frank Hardy (yes, those Hardy Boys), agents for the quasi-secret A.T.A.C. (American Teens Against Crime), receive an assignment through their brand-new video-game console: Zombie flash mobs appear to be on the rise and far from the innocent fun they may seem to be. A quarrel as they consult with Chet and Belinda on strategy—"[H]ow about, just this once, we do this Indiana Jones style and make it up as we go along?" an exasperated Joe demands after Frank begins for the millionth time to make a plan—splits the brothers, sending Joe to join a zombie flash mob and Frank to discover the sinister plot behind it. Henrique's renderings are not always consistent, but they provide a visual edge to support the simmering friction between the brothers. Although the resolution is disappointingly Scooby-Doo mundane, the story's on the whole not a bad makeover for the goody-two-shoes detectives. Nancy Drew receives a similar fresh start inVampire Slayer, Part One(ISBN: 978-1-59707-214-4).(Graphic mystery. 8-12)
