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.
