The zombie survival guide : recorded attacks
Max Brooks

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

This graphic novel spin-off of Brooks's New York Times best seller The Zombie Survival Guide recounts 12 brief historical tales of zombie shenanigans involving prehistoric man, a Roman commander in ancient Scotland, Francis Drake, plantation slaves, and more. The narration, delivered as a dry and factual account, is a distilled version of what appears in the Survival Guide and, consequently, offers no added depth or insight. It is as if Brooks used the graphic novel format as a vehicle through which to build another franchise rather than as tool for ingenuity. An in-depth retelling of each tale in a series of graphic novels would have been better. The real treat is Roberson's illustrations (curiously, his name doesn't appear in the press release, cover, or title page). The brilliantly shaded, exquisitely detailed black-and-white panels give justice to the gruesome zombies, the historical scenery, and the extreme human emotions. Verdict Although the script is uninspired, the topic matter and illustrations lend enough drama to pique the interest of zombie enthusiasts and guide them to Brooks's other books (including the excellent World War Z).-Ann Kim, New York (c) Copyright 2010.
