Synopses & Reviews
"This compilation combines the best of graphic novels and anthologies, featuring amazing illustrations by Ericka Lugo and short stories by women who have lifted the zombies vs. robots theme to a whole new level. The anthology follows This Means War! and is also based on the ZvR graphic novel series, but newcomers will find it quite accessible. The stories feature entirely different worldviews while flowing seamlessly together. In Nancy A. Collins's 'Angus: Zombie vs. Robot Fighter,' Angus is a boy warrior who has been raised by robots for one purpose to kill zombies. He is humanity's last, best hope. Or is he? In 'Mademoiselle Consuela,' Amber Benson speculates on what happens when a warbot is the only one left to nurture a human girl on an isolated island. In 'The Virgin Sacrifices,' Rachel Swirsky creates an Amazon love story torn asunder by zombies and robots. Every story sparkles with creativity while admirably meeting the needs of the theme.

Presenting a dozen-less-two high-value adventures straight from the global zombie/robot conflict, WOMEN ON WAR is definitive proof that IDW's Band of Sisters can bring the Zombie Terror and Robot Menace as good (if not better) than their ZvR brothers. Tier One Operators in the theater of compelling (and often squishy) action-horror, this unique volume features all-new, full-color illustrations by IDW's latest discovery, artist Ericka Lugo. Award-winning horror/dark fantasy writer Nancy Holder provides an insightful introductory essay. Leading literary experts agree, adding this distinctive title to your library is a real no-brainer, but you must act quickly, we won't be keeping it in print for long, only initial orders are guaranteed to be filled.
