Chaos Campus: Sorority Girls vs. Zombies created by B. Alex Thompson

“Beginnings are Endings that Begin”

Chaos Campus: Sorority Girls vs. Zombies is a zombie apocalypse comic book series that mixes in elements of comedy, horror, and adventure.  Chaos Chaos is set during a zombie invasion and follows the adventures of three members of the sorority, Epsilon Alpha Zeta Upsilon (EAZY):  ass-kickin’ Jamie Lynn Schaeffer, brainy and magic-wielding Paige Helena Patton, and sexy Brittany Ann Miller.

Chaos Campus: Sorority Girls vs. Zombies: Extra Credit is a “side series” to the main series.  It offers readers something “extra,” and is also set in the continuity of the main series.  Both series are the creation of B. Alex Thompson and are published by Thompson's company, Approbation Comics.  Chaos Campus: Extra Credit is written by Thompson; drawn by Ricardo Mendez; colored by Alivon Oritz; and lettered by Krugos.

Chaos Campus: Extra Credit #10 opens at the EAZY sorority house, the current location of debauchery and maybe, of an orgy.  College boys are ready to unleash as many loads as possible, and one of them is Paige's slutty boyfriend, Roger.  Buxom Brittany, Paige's friend, has had enough of Roger's cheating ways, and she plans on telling him off.  But she sure is in for a surprise.

Roger wants Brittany to convince Paige that the three of them should form a threesome, especially because he knows Brittany is bisexual and has romantic feelings for Paige.  But the kinkiness will have to be put on hold.  There are zombies about.

THE LOWDOWN:  I did not like Chaos Campus: Extra Credit #9 as much as I usually enjoy the main series.  It was not one of B. Alex Thompson's better efforts, but it was still enjoyable because it's a Chaos Campus comic book.

Extra Credit #10 is quite enjoyable, and it holds a delightful surprise for longtime readers.  It is a retelling (in a way) of the first two issues (more or less) of the original series, Chaos Campus: Sorority Girls vs. Zombies.  I went back and took a look at Chaos Campus #1 and #2, and one of the things I realized is that the series could have taken a totally different direction than it did back then.  That exemplifies the fluid nature of both this series and of the Chaos Campus concept.  Chaos Campus is not “anything goes.”  However, it can be described as “anything is possible.”

As usual, artist Ricardo Mendez presents solid storytelling, and Alivon Ortiz's sharp colors add a vividness to the retelling that the original chapters did not have.  Letterer Krugo provides the new soundtrack of screams and comedy.

So, for those who can't get enough zombie-action from the main series, try Chaos Campus: Extra Credit #10.  It give it credit for being extra special.

I READS YOU RECOMMENDS:  Fans of Chaos Campus will always want to try Chaos Campus: Sorority Girls vs. Zombies: Extra Credit.
