Short for zombie comics: zombics!
Based on a glowing recommendation from Cory Doctorow of boingboing I picked up the first volume of The Walking Dead today from Amazon. I figured what the heck, it's only $10 thanks to the free shipping I get with Amazon Prime. It was kind of uncharacteristic of me since I'm not a big comic fan and I don't really trust Doctorow's judgement all that much, but c'mon... zombie comics are a golden concept.
Right from the introduction I knew this was pretty much as perfect as they come:
Give me "Dawn of the Dead" over "Return of the Living Dead" any day. To me zombie movies are thought provoking, dramatic fiction, on par with any Oscar worthy garbage that's rolled out year after year. Movies that make you question the fabric of society are what I like. And in GOOD zombie movies... you get that by the truckload.
For me the worst part of every zombie movie is the end. I always want to know what happens next. Even when all the characters die in the end... I just want it to keep going.
I hate to sound like the dude's agent... but if that sounds good to you then you owe it to yourself to get The Walking Dead Vol 1: Days Gone Bye. Character driven zombie epic comics -- good to the last drop!
