The side-splitting and artery-spurting epic continues as the battle for Pittsburgh is underway as hordes of the Mocking Dead descend -- and Aaron Bunch's pop-culture-inspired battle plan is put to the test! Will the Internet nerds of DIA's Tinseltown Division save the city -- or accidentally lead it to the edge of the abyss of total zombie apocalypse?

    The end of the book also demonstrates that containment is futile in more ways than one and that his journey to find the actor who was a child in the movie, now all grown up, living outside of Pittsburgh is really not a terribly good idea and the woman who accompanies him well she's in a world of trouble nowadays. I dunno the characterization here is perfectly spot on, even the minor characters, and we get a damn good look at the people in charge and working hard to keep this from becoming a bad horror movie. It's highly entertaining well thought out and just a new look at an old story. Read Full Review

    In the end, I believe this series has the juice to go a long way as it keeps the reader entertained without making you think a whole hell of a lot. It's one of those books where you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado Oct 1, 2013

    Overall, Mocking Dead is a relatively funny title, offering a new twist to a genre that's become mainstream enough to parody. But the humor can be hit or miss, and this detracts from the read as a whole. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak Oct 7, 2013

    Fred Van Lente and Max Dunbar do a good job creating a zombie parody comic that any fan of the genre can enjoy. Despite its lack of horror elements, there are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. It is not the Walking Dead, but it has some great creativity support it. Read Full Review
