Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This compilation combines the best of graphic novels and anthologies, featuring amazing illustrations by Ericka Lugo and short stories by women who have lifted the zombies vs. robots theme to a whole new level. The anthology follows This Means War! and is also based on the ZvR graphic novel series, but newcomers will find it quite accessible. The stories feature entirely different worldviews while flowing seamlessly together. In Nancy A. Collins’s “Angus: Zombie vs. Robot Fighter,” Angus is a boy warrior who has been raised by robots for one purpose—to kill zombies. He is humanity’s last, best hope. Or is he? In “Mademoiselle Consuela,” Amber Benson speculates on what happens when a warbot is the only one left to nurture a human girl on an isolated island. In “The Virgin Sacrifices,” Rachel Swirsky creates an Amazon love story torn asunder by zombies and robots. Every story sparkles with creativity while admirably meeting the needs of the theme. (Dec.)
Library Journal
A young man discovers the terrible truth about his upbringing and training as a protector of humanity in Nancy A. Collins's "Angus: Zombie-vs-Robot Fighter." Forbidden love between two Amazons, one a warrior and the other a priestess, leads to a dual sacrifice in Rachel Swirsky's "The Virgin Sacrifices." With contributions by Amelia Beamer, Amber Benson, Ekaterina Sedia, and other women writers, these ten tales offer a feminist take on the comic book world of Zombies vs Robots, the work of writer Chris Ryall and illustrator Ashley Wood. VERDICT Joining This Means War!, this volume serves as a solid addition to the ever popular subgenre of zombie fiction.
