    Our first peek at the outbreak!

    In "What Once We Feared" a group of classmates finds themselves in the midst of a zombie attack while on a school field trip. The first resurrected have already popped up elsewhere but everyone has been told it's under control. When bodies start falling from the sky, it quickly becomes clear that control has flown out the window. Jonah and his friends quickly seek refuge in a nearby apartment building but soon learn that their escape isn't necessarily the salvation they'd thought it was. 

    I really loved this short extra. Like "Hare Moon" it was a welcome return to a series that remains one of my favorites. The story is a bit bleak (or hopeful depending on your mood!) and packs a punch. It stayed with me long after finishing.
