From the New York Times bestselling writer of the Marvel Zombies series comes a gut-splitting (then eating) comedy! A small outbreak can turn into a worldwide apocalypse... but only through a long string of screw-ups. Once actual zombies begin popping up in our world, a lone intelligence analyst realizes real-life events are beginning to mimic the events of a long-lost, Grade-Z, drive-in horror flick. As he races to save humanity with this knowledge, he quickly learns the only thing more dangerous than ravenous walking corpses is the ineptitude of the living!

Pretty cool that they have the locations as Murrysville and Monroeville PA as that is where Romero filmed his movies.

I've read the story...its...sigh...very.....it tries to hard indeed there are funny moments and the art is very well done, but overall dialouge is just dense with okay jokes and too many references to seem fun

This actually sounds kind of good.

"I always thought it would be giant robots."

Who do you think is responsible for the zombie outbreak in the first place? The giant robots want the human race to spend their time and resources fighting the zombie hordes, so that the human race will be exhausted and unequipped to handle the robots. Thats the plan, see. Its always been the plan. Wear down the humans with zombies and then *BOOM* giant robot attack!
