AIHARA Koji [Japan]


This piece captures a world filled with zombies who chase the living, from a new point of view. The omnibus style compendium realistically expresses the fear of people who live under the menace of zombies through three time phases: the beginning phase when the zombies appear; the middle phase where the world dissolves into chaos as lives are destroyed and, the last phase in which the surving humanity prays together with the zombies and returns to their regular life.
