    Kinda puts the Blondie song “Rip Her To Shreds” in a whole new light…

    I live in Eugene, Oregon, so naturally I just have to check this out

    Also, if you like these “weird” comics, there’s XOMBI

    See for yourself, it has no Zombies!

    This sounds suspiciously like “Being Human.” Not that that is bad thing.

    If I learned anything in college it is that the THC content of most Eugene residents brains make her a pretty high zombie.

    I truly do not understand the appeal of zombies. Vampires are bad enough, but the undead? Yucko.

      Vampires as we consider them in most stories are undead too. Unless you’re talking about living people with porphyria (formerly porphyric hemophilia), which is a different matter (and not what we really consider vampires).

      Now, as for their appeal, zombies are a great literary metaphor for impending, inescapable doom. Also, they’re the monster du jour. I’m sure in a couple of years werewolves will be back in style (since we sort of went through mummies in the mid 90s).

      I’ve been meaning to pick up some new graphic novels, and this one looks pretty whiggy. We’ll see when the Amazon box arrives.

    Cory, could you PLEASE stop posting these reviews the day AFTER I go to Powell’s?

    Still… I shall add this title to my list. It sounds great, as are the other titles that you’ve turned me onto: Walking Dead and DMZ.

    Cheers!

    Great review, but I’m surprised there isn’t more of an emphasis on the artwork done by Michael and Laura Allred of Madman/X-Statix fame – it’s absolutely superb! Michael and Laura produce some of the slickest and most appealing comic art today, IMHO. You can check out their work at http://www.aaapop.com/

    Zombies have been played out for literally years now.
    Next you’ll be sharing a link to some “awesome” skull.

    (Yeah. Yeah. I have my own blog. Thanks.)

    Zombies is teh aw3som3z because they signal the end of the world as we know it, irreversibly. The dead are walking – what could be more bizarre? Birds speaking? Gravity reversing itself at will?

    The dead walk: game over. Life no longer has meaning.

    I thought iZombie was all about the folks that get all excited about the latest junk from Apple Inc.

    One more vote for zombies over vampires. I would much rather watch “Zombieland” or “Sean of the Dead” than that “Twilight” drivel.

    I am usually a Leslie Nielsen and Mel Brooks fan, but I hated “Dracula: Dead and Loving It.” OK. The “Underworld” series wasn’t bad. Still, zombies are more fun.

    I read the first three or four issues of this monthly before dropping it. The art is great, but the writing was just “okay.” The story just plodded along when it needed more energy. It’s a decent series that deserved to be great.

    >Basically, this thing writes itself from here

    Exactly what I was afraid of.

    It’s about time! I was beginning to think that nobody in the west was even going to try and do anything actually interesting with zombies, rather than just continually remake the exact same thing over and over.

    I’ve just illegally downloaded the first 2 issues and I’m ordering the trade online.

    That’s my comic habit nowadays in case anyone is taking notes on marketing and stuff.
