Did you ever wonder why the Resident Evil Franchise has become so successful? Rightly so! Various books, graphic novels, games, and movies (the fifth one coming out 2012) are all contributing to this enormous universe. Resident Evil will be the first book that will focus on this particular zombie manifestation and its significance in popular culture.

This publication aims to examine Resident Evil in literature, art, games and other media concerning sexuality, gender, social change and feminism as well as a variety of other theoretical frameworks. It will provide an interdisciplinary stage for the development of innovative and creative research and examine this vital and complex world in all of its various manifestations and cultural meanings.
