The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacksby Max Brooks
Synopses & Reviews
"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. On the African savannas, against the legions of ancient Rome, on the high seas with Francis Drake-- every civilization has faced them. 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" — from publisher's web site.
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 savannahs 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.
The New York Times bestselling author of The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z, MAX BROOKS has been called "the Studs Terkel of zombie journalism."
Artist IBRAIM ROBERSON brings a diversity of graphic influences into the dark vision of this story.
