Overview

Those who don’t learn from history are condemned to repeat it.

From the Stone Age to the information age, the undead have threatened to engulf the human race. They’ re coming. They’re hungry.

Don’t wait for them to come to you!

This is the graphic novel the fans demanded: major zombie attacks from the dawn of humanity. On the African savannas, against the legions of ancient Rome, on the high seas with Francis Drake . . . every civilization has faced them. Here are the grisly and heroic stories–complete with eye-popping artwork that pulsates with the hideous faces of the undead.

Organize before they rise!

Scripted by the world’s leading zombie authority, Max Brooks, Recorded Attacks reveals how other eras and cultures have dealt with–and survived– the ancient viral plague. By immersing ourselves in past horror we may yet prevail over the coming outbreak in our time.

Editorial Reviews

It all began with the sighting of a rampant herd of dead creatures. Calls and warnings had no effect; before long, the Foreign Legion was under siege by zombies who moved inexorably forward. Max Brooks, the author of the original Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z, leads readers through the untold history of undead incursions through history and prehistory.

lol, it was a fun read but on the ilustration part of the book the bottom part is cut away because it does not fit the screen size for the nook so u dont get to enjoy the whole story wich can be annoying since for full price paid u should get the full book...and i havent found a way to fix that...even on the nook pc app it is the same so i feel a bit cheated since i probably would not have bought the book had i known that.

Don't get me wrong, but this graphic novel is over priced. I read this book in ten minutes. I loved Brook's first two books and was really looking forward to this one. I bought it without even realizing how short it was. I figured it was worth the $17.00 dollars. I would recommend this graphic novel if it were about $6.00 to $7.00 dollars, but I just can't recommend it for the price. While it had a great plot, it was just way too short the amount of money spent. I would highly recommend Brook's first two books, The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z to anyone that likes zombie movies/books.

I recommend getting only the sample as the only things added are bits from Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z so dont bother if you have those already, if not then its good to see what they are like.

Ebook for "ZSG: Recent Attacks" looks good on my Nook Tablet when purchased at the B & N website. Free sample has same content as purchased version. Be aware. Just remember that if you like it that you should pay the author and artist for their work. High quality black/white graphics. Story and images were good. Very interesting graphic novel.

I downloaded the sample and found that it was pretty much the entire book! It's a great read for anyone who likes the zombie genre and the illustrations add a great element to the whole thing. Great book.

The free sample is essentially the entire book. Buying actual book only adds two sample chapters - one from World War Z and one from the Survival Guide.

A little short for me, but otherwise fine.

Reading this should have been enjoyable but I found it to be frustrating due to the illustrations being cut off with no obvious way to fix this problem. I tried shrinking the text, changing the spacing, and changing the margins- nothing made the whole illustration render on the screen correctly. Ultimately, this appears to be a good work with poor execution.

My worst fear is zombies. I thought if i got this book it would go away. It didnt. It actualy made them more frightening. Now im haveing anxiety atacks. Mini ones. And they dont even finish the page. Realy why would they make the sample the whole book.
