If/Then: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

resident-evil-the-final-chapterWhen it comes to suggesting comics for individuals to check out, it’s often good to start with what they like in other media like television, movies, books, or video games. Enter If/Then, where we’ll throw out suggestions for you to check out!

Returning to theaters this weekend is the kick-ass Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.

The human race’s last hope against apocalyptic obliteration is super soldier Alice (Milla Jovovich), but she’s been stripped of her psychic powers. She must form alliances and rally survivors in Raccoon City for the climactic battle against the Umbrella Corporation and its ravenous hordes of the undead. This sixth installment of the video game-inspired franchise is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

So, we’ve got a zombie flick headed up by a kick-ass female lead. I think we’ve got some comics that can fill that niche. If you want to know what you should check out, find out below.


resident-evilResident Evil (Manga by Viz Media) – Did you know there’s Resident Evil comics? The highly virulent C-virus became a global disaster, but where did the outbreak start? In this prequel to the hit Resident Evil 6 game, the terrifying origins are revealed.

Published by Viz Media, this manga series will keep you entertained and immersed in the world of Resident Evil. If you love the video games and the movie then you should absolutely check these manga out to find out what you’ve been missing. Each volume perfectly captures and extends the world on the printed page.

The Walking Dead (Skybound Entertainment/Image Comics) – Yes, there’s a television series, but before that, there was a comic series. For well over 100 issues the story of Rick, Carl, Michonne, and more has been chronicled in shocking and gory detail.

This one is for fans of the zombie aspect of the movie and video game series it differs enough from the television series that you’ll be kept on your toes and is more gory and unrestrained.

Monstress01_CoverDC Comics Bombshells (DC Comics) – If you like the idea of kick-ass women, this comic series might be for you if you’re also into superheroes. Set in an alternative world this series takes inspiration from bombshell/pin-up art putting the women front and center as the world’s superheroes. What has me including this comic series on the list is its strong feminist leads and it’s women saving the day, much like Alice. Entertaining and action-packed, it’s a solid alternative for those looking for a world where women are the ones doing the punching, taking the lead, and the ones saving it.

Buffy, the Vampire Slayer (Dark Horse) – Numerous volumes have been released bringing the popular character from television to comics. Released as seasons, the comics act as a continuation of the world made popular on the small screen. Replace zombies with demons and vampires and you’ve got a more teen-friendly take on a similar story.

Monstress (Image Comics) – Steampunk meets Kaiju in this original fantasy epic for mature readers, as young Maika risks everything to control her psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, placing her in the center of a devastating war between human and otherworldly forces. A horror fantasy series full of monsters and magic is as jaw dropping beautiful to look at as it is engaging to read.

Official Press Release

Bandai announces the release of the RESIDENT EVIL™ Deck Building Game on November 19, 2010 and special pre-release promotions for Halloween Weekend 2010!

Cypress, CA – September 23, 2010 – Bandai America Inc. (Bandai) and Capcom Entertainment, Inc. (Capcom) are pleased to announce the RESIDENT EVIL™ Deck Building Game (DBG), scheduled for release on November 19, 2010!

In Capcom’s Resident Evil® video game series, a deadly virus has caused the dead to rise and infect any living thing they encounter!  Fleeing to a mysterious mansion, you must gather any materials you can find to protect yourself and fight for your survival against a legion of infected beings!

The RESIDENT EVIL DBG brings the story to life in a game of strategy where players construct their card decks while they play.  Choose one of your favorite characters from RESIDENT EVIL such as: Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, or Albert Wesker among others. Players start with only the most basic of items and weapons. As the game progresses, players build their arsenal with additional Weapons, Ammunition, Action or Item cards to customize their deck and improve their ability in defeating “the Infected”! Your deck will be your lifeline to survival.  How will you survive the zombie outbreak?

The RESIDENT EVIL DBG will consist of 250 playing cards, 3 different game modes (Story, Mercenary and Versus) and hundreds of possible scenarios within each mode for unlimited replay value.  No two games will ever be the same!

  • Story mode is the main version of the game where players must race to claim the best weapons, items, and ammunition before others get to it first. Quick thinking and a good instinct will help you survive the Mansion and be the one to escape to safety.
  • Mercenary mode is similar to Story mode but this mode rewards the players that take the offensive. Players must prove their skills by defeating as many zombies as they can in a limited amount of time. This mode can be played in teams.
  • Versus mode removes “the Infected” from the game and pits the human characters against each other in a battle for dominance. Players must watch their back as they attempt to defeat each other while staying alive themselves. Watch out because you may find that players are not as merciful as “the Infected”!

MSRP is expected to be $29.99.

Bandai is planning a full schedule of promotions and events that will lead to the big release on November 19th, 2010.  On Halloween weekend October 29th – 31st customers will be able to get a sneak preview of the game when demo copies are made available exclusively to hobby retailers nationwide.  After playing the game, consumers that preorder a copy before November 19th will receive 2 exclusive cards not available in the regular edition of the game!
