Resident Evil, née Biohazard in its native Japan, was already turned into a feature film. It's getting turned into a Japanese comic, too.


This isn't a Resident Evil first, as RE has already seen manga iterations. This latest one is set in a prestigious Asian institution, located on an isolated island. When there's a zombie outbreak, Chris Redfield is sent into investigate.

Naoki Serizawa is working on the new RE manga, which goes on sale Feb. 23 in Weekly Shonen Champion.
