Blurb: Something terribly wrong is happening at Suee’s school. Can anyone save the school? The Zero Detective Club is on the case! New friends Suee, Haeun and Hyunwoo must solve the mystery of the Zeroes before they fall victim to the Zero disease. The Zero Detective Club must make a plan, follow the clues and save the day. However, one member of the club has something she isn’t telling the others.
I reviewed the first graphic novel last year and I was eager to pick up the next volume in this series to see how this story would pan out! The story continues with Suee trying to find out what is causing the loners and outsiders in her school to become ‘zeroes’ (which is essentially zombies who are not in control of their own actions.) Suee continues to be a fun and sarcastic character who I enjoy watching interact with other characters. As for the mystery, to an adult reader it is obvious there is a connection between the events in the school and what happened to Suee in the first chapter of this story. However there is still are a lot of unanswered questions and the overall tone of the story is dark/suspenseful. This volume like the first is quite short and though it has a great ending I wonder why the author has chosen to split them up into so many parts as it feels like it could be told in one larger volume. I definitely will check out the next volume as I am eager to see what happens to the characters, especially Hyeun. As for the art in continues to impress with it bold lines and use of black, red, white tones. It definitely has a gothic tone to it and I could see many middle school students relating to Suee as a character.
