Tis the Season of the Living Dead

Not all zombie literature is made equal, but I knew that when I saw Max Brooks’ The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks on the bookstore shelves that I was in for a treat based upon his work on The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War.  I wasn’t disappointed.  In the Zombie Survival Guide there is a section that foreshadows the ideas presented in this graphic novel, in that, there have been zombies with us through the ages. 

The art is solid and the storytelling is even better.  The best part was the current popular sci-fi take on zombies with the Caribbean, which has never really been satisfactorily dealt with for me until now.  Every story does a great job at weaving history with zombie events, but I must admit I have a special place in my heart for the Ninjas vs. Zombies story.

    I’m reading World War Z right now – really enjoying it. It’s a fresh take on how to tell the story. It wouldn’t surprise me if the other books end up on my Sony PRS-505 either.

    World War Z was superior to a lot of the stuff out there today. They did a really good job with having as many stories as they did in there and also keeping the same level of tension.

    I was looking at the 505 in Borders the other day. It’s a solid unit. Barnes & Noble’s Nook comes out in another week. It’s more expensive, but has a lot of nifty features.
