The zombie classic returns in an all new series from the same creative team that brought you the acclaimed War of the Dead. The lepers have been slaughtered, the people who escaped the breeder pits head for the safety of New Washington, and now the zombies are under the control of Donna, the half-human/half-zombie hybrid. With King Zombie dead, she leads the zombies. Or does she?

    Unleash The Fanboy - Eric Bridges Dec 4, 2013

    The story is good, except for the thing that I was talking about with it jumping too quickly from one to the next. That aside, it does a great job of painting the world and giving us some information of what happened to the world to make it this bad. I would say that it is something that I am excited about reading in the future. Read Full Review

    The short and skinny is that this issue was a great place to pick up a big series, and it has creepy and atmospheric to spare. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Dec 4, 2013

    There's actually a lot more story than I'm recapping in this review, but I think it's well worth the price of admission to actually pick this book up. You must get this if you're even a casual fan of horror or anything zombie or undead-related. It's clear The Walking Dead took some cues from this book (some of them honestly seem like blatant rip-offs), so go support a book that got the zombie genre right first. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Dec 12, 2013

    Sami Makkonen's wonderfully moody art is a standout that made this issue particularly enjoyable for me. His style is reminiscent of Ben Templesmith or Ashley Wood. Slightly abstract in places, strong character design, and perfect for this kind of action/horror book, you can check out some samples of his art here. If you like zombies, horror, and/or post-apocalyptic stories you should definitely be checking this series out. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Pritchard Dec 5, 2013

    I guess I just found it all too dark and too gruesome, and when I read my comics I want a little light with my darkness. This book was all darkness to me. I know that some readers will find the anti-hero Dead Killer to be a super cool, bad ass character, but to me he's just a psychopath who enjoys killing things, and that's not really a hero in my eyes. He's just a well-drawn lunatic with an interesting back-story. I guess the zombie genre is just a bit too bleak, a bit too depressing and a bit too confusing for this newbee to the world of zombies. The artwork was great, but I'll leave this one to the zombie fan-boys. It's all just a little too sick for my tastes, and not really my cup of tea. Read Full Review
