Read an Excerpt
Zombies are fun to draw because they're just about the most stubborn characters in all of manga. Arm fallen off? No problem. She'll just keep moving forward. Legs rotted away? A mere speed bump. She'll just drag herself along the ground until she finds a human victim. Zombies always make me wonder if we humans underestimate just how good we must taste.

I have a nook glowlight and I got the free sample. I would recommend to no get it. The actual paperback copy is so much better and explains more. Christopher Hart is an amazing artist in my point of view. I realize some might disagree with this and think there better than him, but for bigginers, all of his beginer books are great! ~pikachufangirl
