The Recorded Attacks wiki last edited by fesak on 02/05/14 08:58AM View full history

Man has battled the undead for millenia. Best-selling author Max Brooks provides the lessons that history has taught us about zombie outbreaks as he chonicles the most famous outbreaks, gruesomely illustrated in graphic novel form. From our descendants on the African savannahs to the legions of ancient Rome, from the voyages of Francis Drake to the ill-advised experiments of the Soviet army, The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks takes the reader on a journey across many anni horribilis and hauntingly reminds us how close the living dead have come to destroying humanity.

Back Blurb

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 Books, 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.
