Staff Pick

A chilling tour through faux-historical zombie plagues. From cannibal Cossacks making a poor choice of meat to a ship full of undead African slaves, it's hard to decide which is more frightening — actual history or zombie fiction — but it all makes for fascinating reading.

Publisher Comments:

Those who don't learn from history are condemned to repeat it.

From the Stone Age to the information age, the undead have threatened to engulf the human race. They're coming. They're hungry.

Don't wait for them to come to you!

This is the graphic novel the fans demanded: major zombie attacks from the dawn of humanity. Here are the grisly and heroic stories — complete with eye-popping artwork that pulsates with the hideous faces of the undead.

Organize before they rise!

Scripted by the world's leading zombie authority, Max Brooks, Recorded Attacks reveals how other eras and cultures have dealt with-and survived-the ancient viral plague. By immersing ourselves in past horror we may yet prevail over the coming outbreak in our time.

Synopsis:

Author Max Brooks warns us that anyone — a policeman, a nurse, a friend, or coworker — can turn into a zombie. That is why this daily calendar is so important. Each page contains information that is vital to survival against an attack by the living dead. You will learn the most effective defense tactics and weaponry, ways to outfit your home, and how to adapt in any territory or terrain. A "Zombie Outbreak Journal" is included for recording suspicious events. Please, stay alert; zombies may be stalking us right now without us even knowing it. Watch out.

Synopsis:

Called the "Studs Terkel of zombie journalism," Brooks provides the lessons that history has taught about zombie outbreaks. Here, Brooks chronicles the most famous outbreaks, gruesomely illustrated in graphic novel form.

Synopsis:

Man has battled the undead for millenia. In The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks bestselling author and "Studs Terkel of zombie journalism" Max Brooks provides the lessons that history has taught us about zombie outbreaks. This is not a list of all zombie attacks throughout history, but a chronicling of the most famous outbreaks, gruesomely illustrated in graphic novel form.

From our descendants on the African savannas to the legions of ancient Rome to the voyages of Francis Drake to the ill-advised experiments of the Soviet army, The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attack, takes the reader on a journey across many anni horribilis and hauntingly reminds us how close the living dead have come to destroying humanity.

This is the graphic novel the fans demanded: major zombie attacks from the dawn of humanity.

Not actually reviewing it. I am considering buying it for my 20+ year old son who is afraid of zombies. Anyone got advice on whether this will help or send him over the edge. He loves graphic novels.
