Zombie Survival Horror: Here's to another 10 Years of realizing your Nightmares

[ Edited ]

The past ten years have proven to be the great comeback decade of the zombie films.



 

 Almost as if Hollywood decided to forgive and forget the not-so-graceful burnout of the infamous genre during the late 1980s, a decisive reboot of Romero’s legacy was inevitable.

 

 

The first Resident Evil movie in 2002 spawned a series of zombie-related films released to satiate the hunger of millions of survival-horror fans the world over. 

 

But what about in comics?

 

 

AMC’s major hit TV miniseries, The Walking Dead, propelled sales of the graphic novels on which it was based to the top of the charts and encouraged comic-book creators nationwide to pick up a shotgun and take aim at their own vision of a zombie-infested apocalypse. 

 

Appropriately setting the story in 2012, Real Interface Studios released a brand-new, 200-page graphic novel on May 9th that depicted its own zombie-horror twist on the popular upcoming Mayan apocalypse legend.

 

 

The violent outbreak, illustrated with gorgeous, manga-style artwork by Jin Song Kim, isn’t started by some mysterious virus this time. Instead the story delves into the consequences of combining man's reckless nature with archeology, which results in an ancient plague being released upon the modern world in Pandora: End of Days Volume #1.

 

Having already sold more than one thousand copies on Barnes & Nobles and other mobile "bookstore" markets during its first month of publication and soaring to the top five ranking in AMAZON's graphic-novel horror category, this is a must-read for survival-horror and zombie/Apocalypse fans or anyone in need of a great thriller. Additionally, the book also provides instructions on how to enter in a unique Giveaway Contest!

Not just films, man – literature! Last year alone produced a freaking bumpercrop of truly classic zombie novels and anthologies! Feed, The Loving Dead, Night of the Living Trekkies, Dust.....just amazing releases.  Here is my "Year's Best" list:

Paul, if you had told me a year ago, i would be reading zombie books, i would have laughed my arse off..but i love them and think they are here...heck they are everywhere. My son has Call of Duty. He and my hubby love fighting zombies and have bought every package upgrade for the zombies. I do not think they have spent anytime playing the regular game. Red Dead Redemption won the EA video of the year..and it has zombies.

Ha – I had that same reaction a few years back. Now I love (most) zombie fiction...
