    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Nov 3, 2014

    Overall, Zenescope's HOLLYWOOD ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE has only one disappointing factor to it -- the fact that it's a limited series of two issues. This is a zombie-infested world in which I wouldn't mind spending a little more time. Read Full Review

    Taking out the question of any deeper meaning, the funHollywood Zombie Apocalypseplays light and breezy. Kept with a pacecomplimenting its humor perfectly, backed up by solid artwork thatmimicscelebrities they're trying to portray aids the wit inHollywood Zombie Apocalypse. Obviously, we'll have to check in a month from now to see if it all adds up to something more than just a very fun little “zom-com.” Until then, Hollywood Zombie Apocalypse remains enjoyableand recommended.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Nov 5, 2014

    Hollywood Zombie Apocalypse #1 effortlessly builds up a zany adventure that suffers a bit. But even so it's still fun enough to earn a recommendation from me. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Nov 5, 2014

    The sum of all these parts is something that doesn't really work, but doesn't really fail at the same time. To be certain there is a lot better that this company puts out, but also a lot worse. Seeing as this is stuck somewhere in between it might be of interest to those looking for a lighter take on the zombie genre, or just those that are a little tired of pop culture deciding what is popular. At the same time, I cant really recommend this, because of its faults and because so many other regular ongoing series from all the various companies bypass this in quality. I suppose in the end that anyone that is interested in this and picks it up is not going to be losing a lot of money seeing as it is already halfway through the series. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Nicole D'Andria Nov 7, 2014

    I doubt the creative team were trying to be groundbreaking, but I feel like this comic could have been. I wouldve liked it to have more self-aware moments and acted more as a commentary about celebrities, comic book movies and the zombie genre. Instead, its just a fun romp that could be more fun. If you find yourself chuckling at the concept, give it a read. I didnt hate it, and I even cracked a smile once or twice while reading it. I just feel like it couldve been so much more and yes, I know Im saying that about a comic called Hollywood Zombie Apocalypse. But when you could be reading one of the many other zombie-related comics out there, you can easily give this one a pass because of it. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Richard Pearson Nov 11, 2014

    I mean I'm a zombie guy and I get a kick out of good and bad zombie movies, videos, comics etc. This walking dead nightmare is another story. Let's start off with STUPID storyline and cheesy movie references that didn't deliver. I mean, yes, I chuckled at the poking fun of other super-hero movies and actors, and the Selena Gomez art was on point. The epic battle she has with the non-GQ street credit earned Justin Bieber was good but alas, moving through the maze of TMZ that this comic is, just kept spiraling down. I mean, come on! people turn into zombies based on the new "ZONBI" Seaweed diet craze. Really, you went with that jump off! I dunno if I should cry, but apologies to Michael Bay: it seems he's been dethroned. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Nov 13, 2014

    Hollywood Zombie Apocalypse is an unoriginal mess filled with cheap jokes and lame pot-shots at celebrities. It coasts by on the name recognition of the stars without any real substance. Read Full Review
