Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“…some damn good stories. " – Project Fanboy

“…an undead treat!” – Previews World

“…my favorite." –Fandomania

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—In this addition to the series, 12 vignettes by different authors and illustrators center on zombies. The artwork varies from classic comic style to sepia toned and horror-movie dark. Also varied is the quality of stories. The first selection is interesting in its use of faith as a healing factor, which is not often found in zombie tales. Unfortunately, the narrator with the strong faith is supposed to be "slow" as seen through her narration, but it's inconsistent. It's unlikely that someone who pronounces television "telebision" could smoothly say "DNA consultant." The collection is mildly entertaining and should be considered an additional purchase.—Suanne Roush, Osceola High School, Seminole, FL
Publishers Weekly
The third volume in Boom!’s anthology series (containing 12 short stories) capitalizes on the zombie trend, but it transcends the monster genre to make strong points about human nature and the will to survive. The comics cover belief, redemption, love, hope, and compassion in creative and eye-opening ways, punctuated by brain eating and gut rending. From the start, this is something special, with a surprising piece about the power of faith by William Messner-Loebs and Matt Cossin. It’s not all high aspiring and inspirational, though; Monty Cook and Jeremy Rock illustrate how those who preach the survival of the fittest are generally not part of the best group, while Michael Alan Nelson and Cossin (again) show how badly jealousy can play out at the end of the world. The writers are generally better known than the artists, but the work overall is highly professional and wide-ranging in style, adding to the diverse feel. Unlike many anthologies, this one has no additional information about its contributors, so there’s no way to easily find more of their work, which is worth seeking out based on this assemblage.
