Now Brooks takes the zombie genre to a whole new level with his new comic series Extinction Parade featuring stunningly rendered art by super-star Raulo (Crossed, Captain Swing) Caceres. Building on the seed of his hit 2010 short story, Brooks has crafted a truly epic series spanning over 250 pages. Not only does Extinction Parade's multilayered depth and meticulously researched detail raise it to the standard of his previous work, it also introduces fans to an entirely new, fresh and terrifying subgenre: Vampires Vs Zombies.

As humans wage their loosing fight versus the hoards of the subdead, a frightening realization sets in with the secretive Vampire race: our food is dying off. This is the story of Vampires decent into all-out war with the mindless hungry hordes of the zombie outbreak as humanity tries to survive them all. Three species in mortal conflict. This is how a species dies.

    I've seen zombie stories with vampires protecting their human food supply before but this one feels different. This issue is mostly setup with some pretty cool insights into the vampires and their outlook on "life". What's really going to make or break this series is what happens next. I've got the setup, where is Brooks going to take us with it. I'll be back for #2, I'm very interested in seeing where this goes. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of vampires or zombies it might be worth checking out the series, but overall for me, it's pretty average. Read Full Review

    Okay–I guess. I'm still curious to see how Brooks resolves the vampires' food shortage, but there wasn't any snap to this issue. Read Full Review
